We Need a New Registrar of Voters!

Dear Alameda County Supervisors & Administrator,

As Alameda County voters, civic leaders, and Democratic Clubs who believe in transparency, accountability and the importance of the right to vote in our democratic country, we write this open letter to express our public expression of lost confidence in the current Alameda County Registrar in upholding the values of our county, accountability to the voters, and the right to vote.  We call on you to restore faith in our Alameda County Registrar’s office by removing Tim Dupuis from his secondary position as Registrar and immediately moving to hire a qualified and dedicated full-time Registrar who will respect and enact the will of the voters of Alameda County.  Read more

Help the Carolina Federation Turn North Carolina Blue

The Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club’s National Political Committee is engaged in supporting the Carolina Federation’s campaign to Help Turn North Carolina Blue. The Carolina Federation team tells you in their own words, what they want to achieve and how they will achieve that goal in this video.

“One thing that we learned in addition to organizing is that actually having really strong candidates and in particular strong candidates who come from the multi-racial working class of this state and who can speak to the base of folks who haven’t been given a reason to vote. That actually having really strong candidates can be a deciding factor and so we’ve been doing that hard work to recruit working-class folks, folks from our membership, folks from union membership around the state to run for office.”  — Gabe Gold Hodgkin, Movement Politics Director

More information about the Federation is available here.
