This month members in good standing of the Culver City Democratic Club will vote on endorsements of candidates and measures that will appear on the November 3 ballot. Here is what you need to know:
Our next general meeting is at 7pm on September 9, 2020, on Zoom. As part of our business meeting, the first 30 members to sign up will each get one minute to make a pitch for a candidate or for or against a ballot measure.
Directly after the September 9 meeting, the ElectionBuddy.com online election will begin. Members in good standing will receive an online ballot by email (please put CulverCityDemClub@gmail.com in your contacts so it won’t go in JUNK MAIL). The ballot will include votes for President and Vice President of the United States, California Assemblymember for AD 54, three seats on the Culver City Council, two seats on the Culver City School Board—along with state, county, and local propositions.
The Club has already endorsed Holly Mitchell for L.A. County District 2 Supervisor, George Gascon for L.A. County District Attorney, Karen Bass for U.S. Congress, and state proposition 15, so those items will not appear on your September 9 ballot.
The ballots must be submitted (by email) by 8:59 PM on September 10, 2020. This completes the first ballot.
Article XI Section 6 of our Club bylaws states “If a first ballot does not result in an endorsement for all open seats, a second ballot shall be conducted.” A vote of sixty percent is required for an endorsement.
On September 11, 2020, be sure to watch your email for a possible second ballot.

Did we fail to send our dues this year? I usually send enough money for all three of us:
