If you know your precinct # (listed on your voter card), you can print a precinct map at http://csa.ou.edu/redistricting/Canadian/Maps/Precincts/. Check out the boundaries for your precinct and consider serving as a precinct officer for your neighborhood.
Please join the Canadian County Democrats from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thurs., 03/12/15, for Precinct officer elections at Canadian Valley Tech Center, room 133, 6505 E. Highway 66 between Yukon and El Reno. This is an important meeting so we will NOT meet at regular monthly meeting time in March.
So what do precinct officers do anyway? Good question.
-- Having at least one precinct officer (chair, vice chair, secretary) in the 52 precincts in Canadian County strengthens the party and helps us elect Democrats.
-- Precinct leaders are voting delegates for their neighborhoods (precincts) at the Canadian County Convention from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Sat., 04/11/15, at Canadian Valley Tech Center. You are also the voting delegates at district and state conventions.
-- We will provide maps so you know the boundary of your precinct and info on your precinct polling location.
-- You can help Democratic candidates by finding sign locations and telling your friends and neighbors to vote for Democrats!
-- You are welcome (not required) to be active in Canadian County party events and activities.
-- Some precinct officers have neighborhood meetings to energize other Democrats.
In March, we will NOT meet on the 2nd Monday, our regular monthly meeting day, because all of the Democratic Precinct Meetings are scheduled on Thursday, 03/12/15. We will meet from 7-8:30 p.m. at Canadian Valley Tech Center. See the schedule below. This is an important meeting, so please plan to join us!

OK Democratic Party Executive Director to recap election results for Canadian County Democrats Nov 10
YUKON, Okla. -- Oklahoma Democratic Party Executive Director Trav Robertson, Jr., will speak to the Canadian County Democrats at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 10, at the Yukon Police Department located at 100 S. Ranchwood Boulevard, just south of Route 66 in Yukon.
Robertson will focus on the results of the recent election and discuss plans for the future.
Seating is available on a first come, first served basis for the free event.
Prior to his position in Oklahoma, Robertson has been a successful campaign manager and advisor since 1997, most recently with the Sheheen for Governor campaign in Camden, South Carolina.
He directed 30 staff as state director for the Obama campaign and served as deputy state treasurer, both in Columbia, South Carolina.
Robertson’s campaign management efforts earned nearly 65 percent of the vote in the Spratt for Congress campaign in a district carried by George Bush.
He earned a bachelor’s of arts degree in philosophy from the University of South Carolina in Columbia.
The Canadian County Democrats meet at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month (except Dec.) at the Yukon Police Department.
Please vote for the following Democratic candidates for office on Nov. 4. Then ask five (of your friends) to ask five (of their friends) to vote for Democrats too. Mid-term elections are generally low turnout. Getting our voters to the polls gives Democratic candidates an edge.
