With 37 days until the election, we are organizing to register as
many people to vote as possible!
We are also promoting Democratic
candidates at the local, state, and presidential levels. We will
have Clinton/Kaine yard signs for $15, but really want them on busy
roads with high traffic.
Join us for a “Meet the Candidates” forum
sponsored by the Young Democrats of Valdosta State University and is open to the public.
We will hear from Democratic and Republican candidates running for local and state offices.
This is instead of the usual LCDP monthly meeting.
