Kent County needs more Dem Precinct Delegates -- almost 800 vacancies

by: politicog

Tue Jul 31, 2012 at 19:42:51 PM EDT


 In this presidential year of 2012, 902 precinct delegates have been allotted throughout Kent County.  Of that number, only 126 (13.6%) have filed in time to be printed on the primary ballots.  It appears that not a single precinct in the County has a full delegation.

People can still be precinct delegates in Kent County, by either (1) filing a notarized declaration of write-in candidacy with the local city or township clerk by 4:00 p.m. by this Friday, or (2) signing a write-in declaration at their voting precinct on the day of the election.  Only 1 vote is needed to be elected as a precinict delegate. 

There will be a meeting at Aberdeen Park in Grand Rapids, on Aberdeen between Eastern and Diamond NE at 7:00 p.m. for those who are able to file by the Friday deadline. 

The only requirements are U.S. citizenship, at least 18 years old, and residency in the precinct.  Remember to fill-in the bubble after writing your name in on primary day.

For more information, or if you are unable to make it to the meeting tomorrow night, email politicog@yahoo.com. 

 Also, we are looking for a commissioned notary that could donate about 45 minutes to notarize the documents.
