A Message From The Chair

Every day, we are reminded just how consequential this national election, for President and for Congress, is to our lives and our Country’s future.  We also have many significant municipal elections, as well as county races for which to prepare.  Let’s be preparing the foundation toward ensuring Democratic victories in November!

Dear Fellow Democrat,

During this week of Memorial Day, different from any other we have experienced, we stop and take time to Remember and Honor the heroic men and women who have served and who have made the ultimate sacrifice — to defend the key values and secure the liberty upon which our Nation is built and to preserve the freedoms and the opportunities we are blessed to enjoy every day in our lives and communities.  Our mission is to do Justice to that legacy.

Details for the rescheduled July 7 Primary Election are being worked out in Mercer County and throughout the State.  Keep posted!

The NJ Democratic State Committee continues to share additional upcoming opportunities to begin thoughts for this year’s campaigns.
Upcoming DNC Events 

  • Virtual Townhall: A conversation with DNC Chair Tom Perez, DNC Black Caucus Chair Virgie M. Rollins, DNC Vice Chair of Civic Engagement and Voter Participation Karen Carter Peterson on Combating Voter Suppression During the 2020 Election Cyclewith Congresswoman Marcia Fudge and Congressman G. K. Butterfield on Tuesday, May 26 at 7:00pm.  Sign up here
  • Vote Tripling: How to Optimize Voter Contact to Boost Turnout. “Vote tripling” is a relational tactic that targets irregular and low-information voters through a trusted messenger: their friends. It’s not an app or new tech — it’s an easy, free add-on to your field program that has been proven to boost turnout by 1pp (see Analyst Institute) by making each interaction with a supporter more impactful. The webinars on Thursday, May 28 at 11:30 AM ET (RSVP) and Thursday, May 28 at 4:00 PM ET (RSVP) will be run by VoteTripling.org, a nonprofit that supports Democratic campaigns (for free) in integrating this tactic into their field plans to boost turnout in battleground states.

The Biden campaign is holding “Action Center Trainings” now through the election, with many available time slots.
