Meet at 1 P.M. at Cathy and Bill Sypher's House
54 Willow Way, Barboursville, VA
From here on out, beginning the weekend of October 20 and 21 and the following two weekends, we will enter the GOTV (Get Out The Vote) phase where we are no longer gathering information from a universe of likely voters. We will be targeting only strong Dems to urge them to vote. In this effort, we will be joined by canvassers from other counties, so we must be highly organized. There will be no more "canvass at your leisure", we will be having only formal group canvassing starting at 1 p.m. each day on the last 3 weekends before Nov. 6th, Saturdays and Sundays only. If you're new to canvassing, no problem, there will be experienced canvassers you can join!
In this three -week GOTV effort, it is imperative that all packets be returned the same day you pick them up. We must refresh the VAN database immediately with the data you collect to keep it up to date. This will reduce the chances of re-visiting people we have already canvassed in this phase.
On October 20th, our formal launch of this phase, we will embark altogether on a furious canvassing blitz to contact every committed Dem in Greene County to get them to the polls.
Roll up your sleeves. Please participate in this final phase....LET'S WIN THIS!!

ELECTION DAY: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6th
Important Upcoming Date:
Call or email Colleen Green to sign up for working at the polls on Nov. 6th or to receive yard signs. She will deliver the signs to you, if you're willing to put them on your property!
Phone: (434) 985-1230
There's still time to sign up to work with OneVirginia2021 on Election Day! We're sending volunteers to polling places around the state to talk to voters about the need for redistricting reform and collect signatures on our action form, which automatically emails the signer's delegate and state senator, as well as Gov. Northam and Lt. Gov. Fairfax, telling them that the signer supports reform. A few hours of your time can make a big difference as we grow this movement - our goal is to get 10,000 new supporters in one day!
If you want to help out on November 6, SIGN UP HERE.
See instructions at the top of this page!

People Begin Arriving for Great Food, Spirits, Camaraderie, and Speakers
All the usual reports for getting out the vote in all areas were given, as well as continued planning. People signed up for the polls on voting day and we did some planning for

Every decade, with recent results of the census in hand, legislative districts are drawn. Redrawing political lines is a powerful tool that determines who wins an election, controls the legislature, and ultimately which laws pass. In Virginia, legislators create the criteria and draw their own districts. This is a manipulative process known as gerrymandering, and we must create a system that more fairly draws political lines. Some of our Greene County Democrats are very involved in the group One Virginia 2021 to stop Gerrymandering in Virginia. Help is needed and all you have to do is
We have been advised by Doug Miller,
our Democratic Representative from the Greene County Board of Elections, to check your Voter Registration information frequently from now until the election. He said that individuals need to check to see if their information has been tampered with. He further statedthat the State of Virginia has been working hard to make sure our voter information is secure and is paying close attention to possible meddling with registrations, but everyone should monitor their registration and report any suspected abuses. If you check your registration and notice anything suspicious, the Greene County Board of Elections can be reached by calling 434-985-5213 or by stopping by their office in the Town of Stanardsville, located at 32 Stanard Street behind the Courthouse. You can check your own voter information online by entering a few items...name, birthday, etc.!
Virginia Elections Officials Warn of Groups "Confusing Mailers" about Registration Status
The Virginia Department of Elections says it has received numerous phone calls from concerned voters who had received “confusing mail” suggesting that their voter registration status was in question.
The mailers did not come from state elections officials. They came from the Voter Participation Center, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization — unaffiliated with government — that says it seeks to register “under-represented Americans,” specifically unmarried women, people of color and millennials.”

Even as a small group, we have the everyday expenses of running our organization.....rental expenses for our group meetings space, printing costs, supply purchases, bumper stickers, etc. Our very BIGGEST expense, that most people don't realize, is the cost of campaign signs that are displayed in our county for any election. Our local Democratic Committee must pay for the smaller yard signs as well as the larger billboard type signs. They all are very expensive. Unlike other parties, we don't get monetary help from the state or national level. We need to make a HUGE difference in 2018 by turning out voters in big numbers on election day.
Let’s make a GIANT BLUE WAVE in Greene County!
