Free, Virtual Precinct Captain and Voter Registration Training

Oct. 13, 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Find out what PCs do and learn what you need to know to register voters.

The DEC has been very fortunate to have a number of talented and enthusiastic Democrats who have volunteered to be Precinct Captains. All new Precinct Captains must receive training on their new role within their community. LaVonda McCandless will provide the Precinct Captain training. 

One of the roles of a Precinct Captain is to register new voters, so we will also be providing the required training on voter registration and vote-by-mail registration. Bert Perkins will provide the voter registration training.

The combined training will be via Zoom on Wednesday October 13 at 6:30 p.m. This training is open to all Precinct Captains no matter when first elected. It is also open to anyone who would like to know more about what a Precinct Captain’s role is. If you can attend, please register here: https://www.mobilize.us/marioncountydec/event/418015/. The Zoom meeting link will be included in your confirmation email on October 12.
