Election Connection 39 Weeks: Iowa Caucuses and Beyond

Standard

I was waiting for the results of the Iowa Caucuses before I published this week’s Election Connection, but it looks like we’re still waiting. I’ll add the results when they are public, but in the meantime, check out your favorite candidates speeches from last night or check out their websites and/or Twitters.

I also want to be clear about this post going forward. Candidates will continue to be listed in alphabetical order. Beginning with Super Tuesday, I will add delegate counts and I will put a line through any candidates who drop out along the way.

Next, once we have a candidate nominated, we will need to UNIFY OR DIE. Click the link for more information and/or to monetarily support the eventual candidate.

On a personal note, I support Senator Elizabeth Warren. She’s my candidate. Read her policy proposals, and check out her record. That said, I will vote blue no matter who.

Election Connection: 40 Weeks: Democratic Primaries

Standard

Beginning next Monday is the first of nineteen voting days to choose the Democratic candidate for President. Voting will take place in fifty-seven primaries and caucuses from the fifty states and seven territories. What follows is all of the primary/caucus dates. Find your state, make sure you’re registered, and vote for the candidate you feel passionate about. Be part of the process; make your voice heard. Then after the Democratic National Convention in July, unify behind the candidate (more on that in later weeks) and return the country to the rule of law and common decency.

Before you review the primary schedule, visit Vote Save America. They have tips on how you can help the candidates, stop gerrymandering, volunteer, donate to the eventual nominee, check your voter registration, and other resources to make your vote count. Check them out.
