10th LD Democrats Reorganization Meeting
Sat Dec 19th 10:30 AM
The State Party’s Charter and Bylaws require that all county and legislative district party organizations elect new officers (a process called “reorganization”) every two years, shortly after each even-year election. At these reorganization meetings newly elected PCOs elect local leadership like chairs, vice chairs, and state committee members and in some cases additional representatives to other party organizations.
Pursuant to the State Party Charter, only Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) elected during the primary election on August 3rd are allowed to vote for the chair, vice chair, state committee members and any representatives the LPO is authorized to send to other Party organizations. They are also the only people eligible to vote on the adoption or amendment of LPO bylaws. Be aware that PCOs voting on the above matters at reorganization are voting as elected representatives of their precincts. Accordingly, voting procedures must comply with Charter Article VII.G.2: When a person votes as an elected representative, open ballots shall be used.
Because of the realities of public health guidance and possible risk to safety, the state party is advising that all local organizations hold their re-organization process fully virtually. The 10th LD will hold our ReOrg meeting on Zoom as has been our practice since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. A detailed set of rules will be drafted and explained at the meeting before the officer elections,
If you would like to consider running for an e-board position, the requirements are straightforward. You must live within the boundaries of the 10th LD, be a registered voter and declare yourself to be a democrat. Being a PCO (precinct committee officer) is not required. If you attend the ReOrg meeting on Dec 19th, you may nominate yourself or have someone else nominate you for any of the offices. There will be 5 minutes total allocated to nomination, seconding, and candidate speeches. After all nominations for an office are completed, the duly elected PCOs will vote. Voting method will be detailed in the Reorganization Rules document.
