This weekend will be Juneteenth.
The Calhoun County Democratic Club will be there as well.
Friday night some of us will be at the park for a bit of time wearing t-shirts with "Register to vote, Ask me how" written on the front. They won't all be blue with white lettering. We are all deputized as VDRs.
On Saturday, we will be there all day working in various shifts at our table. On the table we will have the following:
Calhoun County Democratic Party/Club Newsletter Sign-Up form for the event
Calhoun County Democratic Club membership form
2022 Democratic Slate on Calhoun County Ballot For November 8, 2022 Election (it's a cheat sheet with EVERY Democratic candidate on our ballot in a handy single double-sided page. Plus pictures and their websites, emails, and social media.) You're welcome.
Polling Locations (not just the election day polling locations but I also included early voting at the Courthouse plus their usual day/time to early vote)
Beto handouts (English and Spanish)
Jay Kleberg (only English)
I think that covers everything. Oh, I also got some hand Progress Flags for Pride Month for the table.
On Sunday morning some of us will be there for a bit of time wearing the t-shirts to register people to vote.
The following is details provided by the 2022 Juneteenth Port Lavaca Celebration who are running the event this year. The Club will have a table there as well and will be registering voters.
