Volunteer on Election Day

We are less than a month away from Election Day and we need your help to staff the polls.  As you probably know, official ballots this year will not identify local candidates by Party (no “D” or “R” by these candidates’ names).  Voters will need to get the blue sample ballot or they may not know which of the 14 candidates on the ballot are nominated or endorsed by Democrats.  Please come help us get sample ballots to our voters.

Here are the links to sign up:

Early Voting 2023 and Early Voting Volunteers

Early voting will start on Friday, September 22 for the General Election. While this is traditionally a lower turnout election cycle, there are multiple factors that could radically change the dynamics of these crucial elections. It will be important to take advantage of the early voting period and encourage your community (friends, family, neighbors, etc.) to vote early as well. 

HMDDC needs help staffing a table at the North County Governmental Center for targeted voter outreach. Volunteers providing sample ballots ensure voters know our candidates who aren’t identified get their votes. It is absolutely vital this year with a front and back ballot with various candidate combinations.  Volunteers will greet Democratic Primary voters, provide general election information, and help sign up volunteers to help Hunter Mill District.  To view times and dates for volunteer slots, click here.

FCDC 2023 Endorsements

Concluding May 20th, the Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) has administered a first-of-its-kind endorsement caucus to select its endorsees for the Fairfax County School Board.

For the first time since FCDC started endorsing candidates in 1995, non-member Democratic voters were able to help make our endorsement decision. During the caucus, we saw more than 3,300 voters throughout Fairfax County join us in choosing a slate of candidates who will be prepared to return a Democratic majority to the School Board this November.

Regarding the endorsement caucus, FCDC Chair Bryan Graham states “We thank everyone who voted in the endorsement caucus this year. Public education is vitally important to the families of Fairfax County and to the businesses that choose to locate here. We are excited to see our endorsees deliver a strong message and affirmative vision to voters throughout the summer and into the fall.”

The Democratic-endorsed candidates for Fairfax County School Board are:

○ At-Large: Ilryong Moon, Ryan McElveen, Kyle McDaniel
○ Hunter Mill District: Melanie Meren

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to the other candidates for participating in the process. As our slate of candidates has been completed, we move forward to speaking with our voters and engaging in preparation for the fall elections.

Lasagna Dinner Tickets Are Available Now!

Join us for our 47th Annual Hunter Mill District Democratic Committee Lasagna Dinner on May 13. Our Hunter Mill District Democratic Committee is our signature event of the year and a very important fundraiser to help support our Democratic candidates. Our format will follow previous years with a reception and a dinner program. The Lasagna Dinner is an excellent opportunity to invite local democrats who might not be familiar with our committee and interact with our elected officials. It is the biggest political event of the year along the Dulles Corridor.  As always, we will be awarding two awards during the ceremony: the Ed Herlihy Activist Award and the Martha Pennino Community Service Award. These awards denote exceptional service both within the Democratic Party and throughout our Hunter Mill District community. 

Buy your tickets today! It is crucial that we have the resources to support our candidates and voter outreach into the community. This work is especially important as we support our candidates from the onslaught of Governor Youngkin’s ambitions.  Our committee will support our state and local Democratic candidates with a vibrant voter outreach program. The Hunter Mill Democrats Lasagna Dinner is a volunteer lead operation and we are still looking for some volunteers. If you are interested in lending your talents or donating some food, you can sign up here. We will be adding some updates about the Lasagna Dinner over the next weeks so be on the lookout and we hope you are able to join us.
