Groton Democrats announce meeting, volunteer opportunities
Groton — The Groton Democrats have announced in a news release that they will hold their last Town Committee meeting of the year from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28 on Zoom. Any registered Democrat residing in Groton wishing to attend or listen may request a link to the Zoom meeting from Chair Conrad F. Heede at: email@example.com.
“The purpose of the meeting will be to organize our GOTV (get out the vote) effort in the days remaining until the election,” the news release states. “In this historic election, if you are disgusted with Donald Trump, and want to be represented by elected leaders who have integrity like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who stand for decency, respect and equality for all, then we ask you to vote all Democratic candidates, Row A.”
Their headquarters, next to the Groton Post Office, will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday–Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Lawn signs, bumper stickers and pins for Democratic candidates and facemasks featuring RBG, Dr. Fauci and patriotic themes are still available, according to the release.
Volunteer opportunities also are available for people to deliver candidate literature to homes, make phone calls to voters, and stand with candidate signs outside the polls, offer rides to the polls or collect results after the polls close, the release states.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, the Democrats said they will not host any events at headquarters on election night and ask everyone to stay home, but will collect and 'televise' Groton's election results by Facebook Live. People can tune in on facebook.com/GrotonCTDemocrats.
