Seven male and seven female delegates will be elected in the next month to represent the 2nd Assembly District (the district of Assemblymember James Wood). Elected delegates will become voting members at the California Democratic Party’s statewide meetings in 2019 and 2020. Candidates to be a delegate must file online by Thursday, December 27, 2018 [apologies for any confusion from earlier versions of this post; that date is confirmed as correct]; must have been a registered Democrat as of October 22nd, and must live in Assembly District 2.
The Assembly District Election Meeting (ADEM) will be held on Saturday, January 12, at the Odd Fellows Hall, 545 Pacific Avenue, in Santa Rosa. Doors open at 10 a.m., candidate speeches start at 10:30 a.m., and voting is from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. (If you are in line at 1 p.m., you will receive a ballot.) Any registered Democrat living in Assembly District 2 is eligible to vote, and people can register as a Democrat as late as the election itself, on January 12th.
Help is needed to run this event; if you’re interested in volunteering for the registration morning shift or the afternoon shift for counting of ballots, contact Debra Broner, the California Democratic Party Region 1 West Director, at 805-206-7809 or at email@example.com . (Candidates and campaign managers for candidates aren’t eligible to volunteer, however.)
Note: The 2019 California Democratic Party State Convention will be May 31 – June 2, 2019, in San Francisco – details are here.
