Ready to roll up your sleeves and be a part of making a difference?
As we move into 2019, we will be focusing on the municipal elections. There will be a variety of tasks for the Elkhart County Democratic Party and candidates. Think of how you can and will contribute to our efforts to create a more balanced government in Elkhart County. Contact us at email@example.com if you have questions.
Get out the Vote
We will be working to encourage voter participation. A primary focus of this endeavor is voter registration. Elkhart County Dems will be setting up voter registration opportunities as events and other places folks gather.
You can also promote and assist people with voter registration individually. One way is to assist them with access to the online voter registration application at https://indianavoters.in.gov/#. Another way is to provide the hard copy voter registration form.
The Elkhart County Election Board prefers use of the Federal form. You can download it here in English and/or in Spanish. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we provide the forms. Please read the special instructions for Indiana. We suggest you cross out boxes #7 and #8 in the top half of the form.
Paper forms need to be sent to the Elkhart County Clerks office no later than 10 days after the form is completed (very important).
Getting our candidates elected
If you are interested in helping our candidates get elected, there is surely something that fits your skills and talents.
Candidates are needing folks to canvas neighborhoods, make phone calls, work in the offices answering phones, host a meet and greet, and much more.
