Democrats to elect precinct officers March 12 at CVTC in El Reno

Registered Democrats from Canadian County are invited to participate on Thursday, March 12, in a countywide meeting to elect chairs, vice chairs and secretaries for 51 neighborhood precincts.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in room 133 north and south at Canadian Valley Technology Center located at 6505 E. Highway 66 between Yukon and El Reno.

The Democrats will NOT hold their regular monthly meeting on the second Monday in March because the precinct meetings are scheduled so close to that date.

”Our goal is to fill every office in every precinct,” Canadian County Vice Chair Mark Hammons from Yukon said, “and with 51 precincts in the county, we have many opportunities for new leaders to get involved.”

Precinct leaders will be voting delegates for their neighborhoods at the Canadian County Convention from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Sat., 04/11/15, at Canadian Valley Tech Center.

These elected leaders will also be the voting delegates at district and state conventions.

Each group of officers will receive a map of their precinct boundaries and information on precinct polling locations.

Precinct officers are welcome to participate in Canadian County party events and activities, such as candidate forums, scholarship competitions and school supply giveaways.

Some precinct officers host neighborhood parties or activities to meet other Democrats.

“A lot of people think that they don’t have the time or energy to serve as a precinct officers or delegates,” Hammons said, “but actually our volunteers can be active as they want to be and we really enjoy the chance to make a difference.”

The Canadian County Democrats regularly meet from 7-8:30 p.m. on the second Monday of each month, except March and December, at the Yukon Police Department, 100 S. Ranchwood Boulevard.
