It’s Time to Get Involved!

    Good evening, friends!

    It’s one month until the Primary Election.  This Monday, July 30th, is the last day to register to vote in that Primary.  Absentee ballots are already arriving.

    And it’s only 100 days until the General Election.  We can continue to register voters for that election until Tuesday, October 9th

    It was another productive couple of days at the West Regional Courthouse.  Many thanks to Lauren Tate, Nigel MacDonald, Marcia Kirshner, John Countryman, Beth Mumby, Robin Adell, and Jocelyn Wills for coming out to help!  We collected 19 voter registration forms, 17 vote-by-mail requests, and 132 Universal Background Check demands!

    All sorts of ways for you to help during the next few days:

    Today and tomorrow, July 28th and 29th, the Broward Democratic Party is sponsoring a Weekend of Action.  Come join your fellow Democrats as we canvass and phone bank to help turn Florida Blue!  Just come to the Broward Democratic Party Office at 8320 W Sunrise Blvd., Suite 203, in Plantation, between 1 and 6 PM to help out with canvassing or phone-banking.

    And of course, I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse on Monday, July 30th.  Because that is the last day to turn in voter registration forms for the August 28th Primary, we will only work from 10 AM to 1 PM.  And on Wednesday, August 1st, we will work our regular hours from 10 AM to 2 PM.  Let me know if you can join us.

    On Tuesday, August 7th, from 6 to 9 PM, the City of Sunrise is hosting its National Night Out Against Crime at the Sunrise Police Complex at 10440 W. Oakland Park Blvd. in Sunrise.  Volunteers are needed to help register voters and update information on the voting records.  If you can help, please contact Ellen Moltz at 954-548-9411 or

    And finally, on Sunday, August 19th, from 2 to 4 PM, there will be a “Stronger Together” Rally to get out the vote at the Sunrise Civic Center Theater at 10610 W. Oakland Park Blvd. in Sunrise.   The incredible Barbara Effman is coordinating this event which is being sponsored by a dozen different Democratic clubs.  Many of the candidates who will be on the August and November Ballots are planning to attend.  So save the date!
