How to Participate

Attend Democratic Events.  All Democrats are welcome to sit in on the meetings of the Democratic Executive Committee, although only members of the DEC may make or second motions, or vote.  Each precinct is allotted one male and one female representative.  We are seeking Democrats with a willingness to serve.  If you are interested in finding out what this entails, come to and observe the next meeting of the DEC, held 6 to 7 pm on the second Tuesday of each month.  

 

 

Next DEC meeting: Tuesday, Sept.13, at 6 PM, in the Community Room of the Jefferson County R.J. Bailar Public Library, 375 S. Water St., Monticello

DID YOU VOTE BY MAIL?


We hope you have voted by mail for the primary election! 

To determine whether or not your mail ballot was counted, you can go to the Jefferson County Supervisor of Elections website.  To get there, click the "Access to Government" tab above.  Then click "Supervisor's Office."

 

When the SOE website comes up, "hover" your cursor over "Voter Information."  In the drop-down menu that appears, click "My Voter Information."  Scroll down to fill in the blanks with your name and birth date ( format dd/mm/yyyy), select the "I am not a robot" box, and click "Submit."  You'll then see information on your voter status and whether or not your mail ballot has been received and counted.

 

Our Democratic candidate Althera Johnson has some additional ideas for improvement, which we are  looking forward to!  

If you did not request a mail ballot for the primary, you can still request one for the Nov. 8 General Election.  Phone the Jefferson County Elections Office at 850-997-3348.  The deadline to request that a vote-by-mail ballot be mailed is no later than 5 p.m. on the 10th day before the election, so that will be from now until Friday, Oct. 28, between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM. A Supervisor of Elections must mail the ballot out within 2 business days after a request. The last day for a Supervisor to be able to mail out a ballot is 8 days before the election.
