Sonoma County Democrats Observe Vote Count


During the 2008 Presidential Election, the Sonoma County Democratic Party geared up to observe the vote count at the ROV offices, with several hundred people working in shifts for about three weeks.

Last year, we did a limited observation and had planned to do the same this year. However, two things have changed:

1) Printing errors in the 2nd Supervisorial District created confusion, and

2) There is a very close race in the 7th Assembly District.

The local party began gearing-up for a full-scale vote counting observation process Thursday, June 10.

This Call to Action is being issued to ask for your participation in this important and very interesting process. Few people actually understand the workings of our democracy at this level and those who participated in 2008 found the experience to be very satisfying.

If you participated in 2008 or 2009 observation activities, you can expect to receive a call from Alice Chan or one of her volunteers very soon.

If you want to volunteer this year, please let me know by providing your name, contact information and availability during the week by sending me a Facebook Message. I will forward your information along to the organizers, who will call you for scheduling.

Please feel free to pass this along to your networks.

Thank you for your continued support. Your local party is dedicated to fair campaign practices and our efforts to observe and document the vote count is an important part of that commitment.

All my best,
Stephen Gale
Chair, Sonoma County Democratic Party
