Democratic Write-In Candidate!

Write-In Bill Barry for Hillsborough County Sheriff

Bill Barry of Manchester has recently stepped forward to be the Democratic candidate for Hillsborough County Sheriff. In order for him to be on the ballot for the November 6 elections, we need to write him in this coming Tuesday, September 11, Primary Day.

After you take a Democratic ballot on Tuesday, in the section for “Sheriff” write-in Bill Barry in the line marked “WRITE-IN” and then fill in the little bubble to the right.

If you would like to help with visibility outside the polls on Tuesday, just show up and look for our Democratic State Representative candidates, other volunteers, and the signs. You should see our crew on the right side as you enter the high school from the back entrance. There will be extra signs there to hold. The more the merrier; the large the group, the better the visibility! Consider hanging out for an hour or so before or after you vote. Thanks!

Get Out The Vote (GOTV) Committee-Volunteers Wanted!

The Bedford Democrats are looking for a handful of earnest volunteers to serve on a Get Out The Vote (GOTV) Committee which will create a strategy for increasing voter turnout for the November 2018 election. This group will help develop a plan, database, and other tools that will be needed to implement action oriented steps in ensuring we maximize voter turnout in Bedford for Democratic candidates – ones we hope all active members will assist with in the coming 8 months. If you would like to be involved with and serve on the GOTV Committee, please contact Richard Friedman, who has graciously offered to spearhead the group, at friedman946@yahoo.com. This topic will be on Monday’s agenda so please come and hear more.

The kick-off meeting for the GOTV Committee will be held on Thursday, March 8th, from 10am – 12 noon.
