Potluck @6 PM, Speaker @6.30 PM (Doors open 5.30. Please bring potluck before 6 PM)
The goal of the Upper Valley Dems Civics Program is to give everyone information to take effective action, political and otherwise, on the issues that are important to each of us, individually and as a group. The civics workshops will be facilitated by Karen Liot Hill, a seven-term Lebanon City Councilor and the Grafton County treasurer.
Join us for the fourth and final evening of the civics workshop series.
Session 4 – Where Do We Go From Here? Building the Bench at the Local Level
- Homework: Identify the voter turnout (# votes cast/# voters) for 3 most recent municipal/school board elections/town meetings in your community (2017, 2016, 2015)
Although local elections for selectboard, school board, and city council are non-partisan in New Hampshire (except for Manchester and Nashua), they present real opportunities for Democrats – for both future candidates to gain valuable experience and build a resume as well as for Democratic committees to gain skills in turning out the vote and being engaged in the communities. This session will explore these issues and how Democrats can work locally. All politics is local, after all.
