Democrats Meet June 18 In Clewiston

CLEWISTON, FL. -- Hendry County Democrats will meet at Clewiston's Harlem Civic Center on 7th St off Georgia Avenue on Saturday, June 18th at 9 o'clock in the morning to learn about qualifying as Precinct Committee Members for the county's ten election precincts for the next four years. 

Each precinct is entitled to one committeeman and one committeewoman, who must be registered Democrats living and voting in that precinct. 

Precinct 1 in Clewiston and Precincts 2 and 3 in LaBelle are entitled to an additional pair of precinct committee members based on the number of registered Democrats in those precincts.

Democrats attending the meeting will also learn what they can do to increase the voter turnout at both the August Primary Election and the November General Election as well as the importance of encouraging their family members, friends, and neighbors to sign up for Vote By Mail which makes voting more convenient now that Hendry County has gone from 24 precincts to 10 precincts.

Hendry County's Democratic Party candidates for local offices have been invited to appear at the meeting to let the voters know more about themselves. 

There are no Democrats currently running for Hendry County's State Representative or State Senator. Dr. Alina Valdes is running for Congressional District 25, the only U S Congressional District that will represent Hendry County. It is hoped that she will be able to attend and meet more Hendry County Voters.
