SKIPJACK MAY 2022
Voter Registration Volunteers have set up to register voters at the Lexington Park Library and shopping centers. We appreciate their dedication and commitment.
Proven fact: Direct voter contact is key to increasing voter turnout. We have volunteers writing post cards to 700 newly registered Democrats in St. Mary’s County in 2021. Next, we’ll be sending post cards to the 2022 newly registered Democrats to encourage them to vote.
Monthly General Meetings—We are skipping May because of campaign & candidate activities scheduled, community events, as well as the Memorial Day holiday. We’ll meet again in June on a date to be determined. Meeting date and location information will be emailed and posted on Facebook. Please check your spam/junk folder for [email protected].
Contact us via [email protected] if you are interested in more information or interested in joining the Democratic Women of St. Mary’s.
