JOIN RACHEL IN HER PUSH TO THE FINISH

It's time to join Rachel Levy in her final push for the 55th House of Delegates District seat. Rachel has done a great job and she can use our work in the last days of the campaign. What would help most is support for Get Out the Vote efforts. For Monday, Nov.. 1, and Tuesday, Nov. 2., please give a helping hand at the GOTV link:https://www.mobilize.us/rachellevyfordelegate/event/423032/

MCAULIFFE CAMPAIGN IN SPOTSY

The McAuliffe campaign for governor is doing a Souls to the Polls event in Spotsylvania from 12:15 p.m.-1:15 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3. It is a great chance to get out and support Terry, as well as U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger. Plus, 55th House District candidate Rachel Levy will be in attendance. Follow this link to register.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED ON ELECTION DAY

Democrats need a strong showing at the polls on Election Day, Nov. 2. Virginia is in the national news every week because of the governor’s race, and we need to be out supporting all our candidates. As usual, the HDC will be manning all the polls. We normally work two- to three-hour shifts. We typically have a table and canopy (if it rains) where we will have sample ballots, candidate literature and the like. From past experience, many people come to the polls not knowing who they will vote for, so this is a good opportunity to push our candidates. We need volunteers to staff those polling places. If you are willing to give a couple of hours, contact Betsy Farley at emfarley13@gmail.com or call Don Barth at 856.889.5905 to talk, text or leave a message. When Democrats vote, Democrats win!

RACHEL LEVY CAMPAIGN EVENTS

It's Knocktober and Calltober for the Rachel Levy campaign. As you've seen from the billboards, events and signs, there's a ton of energy behind Rachel Levy and the Rachel Runs for Us House of Delegates campaign. And we want to take a special moment to thank all of our donors, volunteers and stalwart canvassers and phone bankers who are out every weekend knocking and calling for Rachel. But they need your help! We still have a TON of voters to reach. Can you spare a few hours to volunteer for Rachel before election day on Nov. 2? You have less than a month left to let people know Rachel Runs for Us! Visit https://www.mobilize.us/rachellevyfordelegate/

Back to school

School starts in the upcoming week. Please be mindful of traffic changes. Also, consider supporting some of our local groups who are collecting and filling backpacks to ensure that the children in our community have all that they need to succeed. The NAACP, ACEs, local elementary schools, YMCA, and other groups are sponsoring efforts to help ALL families!

Support Democratic School Boards

There has been an effort by Republicans in Northern Virginia to intimidate democratically elected school board members. They are using Critical Race Theory, misinformation and whatever tactics that they can to undermine elections across the country. Show your support for Democrats in other counties. Do not allow Virginia to be the springboard for this disruption to our Democracy! For more information: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/elaineforschoolboard

Get Involved with female leaders across the state

Recently, our House District 55 candidate, Dr. Rachel Levy, participated in the Network NOVA Power Lunch on July 23.and in the 5th Annual Women's Summit at the NOVA session in June. A different group, Family Friendly Economy Virginia, was a guest on the Network NOVA Power Lunch and Rachel was featured in their June storybook

Protect Women’s Rights

The news about Texas is devastating. If laws governing female reproduction pass through the courts, many other rights are soon to be infringed upon. Although rarely enforced, Virginia does have laws making abortion a felony (with certain exemptions). We are being attacked from all sides. Planned Parenthood is working hard on keeping Americans informed by visiting their site.

Put Families First

It seems odd that we are still struggling to pass laws that protect families. Paid Family leave is a major concern for many citizens. You can stay informed at this site: https://womenscenterforcreativework.com/resident/design-for-family-leave/

Provide whatever resources you can to our Candidates

Donations for Scholarships

Strong applications for our college scholarship program are rolling in ... but our HDC coffers are low. Can you help?? Last year we gave out a total of $2,000 to our three Melissa J. Dopp/Bobby Ostergren Scholarship winners. Since we have not held a fundraiser due to Covid, we have just $500 to award this year. The level of commitment to volunteering for Democratic campaigns, leading their peers and working with voter turnout in this year’s scholarship candidates is truly impressive. We would love to be able to give out at least two $500 scholarships this year. Please contact Scholarship Chair Andrea Ferment if you are willing to donate funds to support these Young Dems. Her contact is aferment@comcast.net. You can mail a donation for scholarships to P.O. Box 22, Ashland VA. We need all funds by May 3.

CANDIDATE RALLY ON MAY 16! BE THERE!

On Sunday, May 16 at 2 pm, the HDC is sponsoring a candidate rally in Ashland. Confirmed speakers include gubernatorial candidates Sen. Jennifer McClellan and Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax; Lieutenant Governor candidate Del. Hala Ayala; Attorney General Mark Herring and attorney general candidate Jay Jones; House of Delegates candidate Rachel Levy' and Ashland District Supervisor Faye Prichard.

At the moment, the plan is to host on the Town Lawn in front of the new building. But, if the lawn is not ready, we plan to hold the rally at one of the properties along the railroad tracks in Ashland. There are a lot of what-ifs to consider. For now, save the date and be ready to hear from all of the candidates one more time before the June 8 primary.

Ashland Meet and Greet at Jason Guard's House- June 5, Save the Date

HCDC has a team store!

The Hanover County Democratic Committee apparel is now open! Find items that we've picked out specifically for our team. There is also spirit wear available for your family and friends. Check out the shop details below.

OUR SHOP DETAILS
- Shop Now: https://www.bsnteamsports.com/shop/HanoverDem

Items will be delivered to the house of Chair Daniel McGraw. We will then distribute them to the members. Get your orders in now! These are the lowest prices that they will ever be. The expected arrival of the items is from late January to early February.

PROBLEMS WITH YOUR EMAIL? a possible fix ...

Many of you on Comcast platforms have not been getting recent emails because Comcast has updated its mail server. It is blocking forwarded mail unless you contact your email postmaster. This affects you because we forward emails through HVAdems.com. We know this is going on because we're getting a ton of bouncebacks. As best we can tell, it appears that Comcast has increased their security to require e-mail addresses to be pre-approved.

Mary Laymen has created a quick video on “How to approve emails from a person or organization in Comcast." It is located at this link: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYXv2XNnEw.

Please watch and review the video even if you do not use Comcast internet because other Internet providers are moving to new systems. This video shows a skill that is becoming an industry standard. Share this with friends.

Appointed School Board vs. Elected School Board?

We want to hear from you about whether you believe one version of the board is preferred to the other one. Currently, we have an appointed school board. Please take this two (2) question survey and let us know your thoughts. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QWM9J7D

we need your support!

There are two runoff elections on Jan. 5, 2021, in the Georgia elections. Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff really need your support. This election is crucial to all of us and especially crucial to the success of the Biden administration. If we can win these two seats, we will break Mitch McConnell's chokehold on the Senate. Please go on Warnock's and Ossoff's websites and donate to their campaigns: https://warnockforgeorgia.com/ and https://electjon.com/

Shop with Democrats

The Hanover County Democratic Store is now up and running correctly. You can access the store here: https://www.bsnteamsports.com/shop/HanVADems.

.You may need to copy and paste it into your web browser. The T-shirts and sweatshirts will have the new Hanover Democratic logo across the middle of the front and the polos will have the logo on the top left of the chest. 

The store will be open till January 4. When the items come in, they will be hand-delivered to your front door. Place your orders soon. These are the lowest prices that the items will ever be.

VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

Be sure to vote on Tuesday, November 3. The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you have already voted, that is great! Thank you to the many volunteers who have helped to "Get Out the Vote" this year. All of the sign deliveries, postcard writing, phone banking, social media and active engagements are paying off. The turnout has been incredible already. This is an important year for Democrats!  If you applied for a mail-in ballot and have not already returned it, you will need to bring your ballot to your voting precinct on the day of elections. Curbside voting is available. If you need a ride to the polls, give Daniel McGraw (804-647-9958) a call, and we will find a way to get you to the polls to vote. Stay safe and thank you to all who have voted and will help others to vote.
