Two Weekends Left Before Election!!

While the latest polling looks good, nothing matters except the actual voting and vote counts on Tuesday, November 8th, 2016. Which is why the Get Out The Vote (GOTV) effort is so important!

On Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 29-30, and Nov 5-6, 2016, volunteers will be busy knocking on doors, reminding people to vote (and making sure they have a way to the polls). We are only going to the homes of Democratic supporters! There are three shifts a day, 9 a.m. – noon, noon to 3 p.m., and 3 p.m. – 6p.m. Contact Ann Tiefenthaler (anntiefenthaler30@gmail.com) or field organizer Patrick Eddis (215-359-5773 OR peddis@pavictory2016.org) to volunteer, even if it’s only for an hour or two.

Phone banking is also ongoing, from now until the evening of November 8th, when the polls close. UPDC will be hosting one more night of phone banking in East Greenville on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016, from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at 124 Washington Street, East Greenville, PA. The majority of phone calls are made to people we know are for Hillary Clinton, just to remind them to go out on election day and vote!

And last call for signs! We got in a late shipment of Hillary Clinton and Katie McGinty signs, so let us know ASAP if you’d like one or two! updemclub@gmail.com

 

 

Pres. Bill Clinton in Reading on Friday, Oct. 28th!

Beautiful Day for a Parade!

Okay, so maybe Upper Perk’s Halloween Parade doesn’t start until this evening at 6 p.m. (Quakertown’s Parade is earlier this afternoon, 2 p.m.), but it should be a lovely crisp and clear autumn night – and the Upper Perkiomen Democratic Club, along with Area 2 Democrats, and Democratic candidates, will be in the very first division! The Upper Perk Parade starts off from the Red Hill Fire Company, and goes along Main Street through the three towns, ending at the East Greenville Fire Company at 4th and Washington Street.

If you’d like to be part of the parade, dress up in red, white, and blue, or as a scarecrow, or perhaps as a Secret Service official (NO toy guns or toy weapons) – just remember “when they go low, we go high” – and meet up with our group in front of the Red Hill Fire Company at 5 p.m.  There is very limited parking at the start of the parade, so people are encouraged to park by the East Greenville Fire Company and take a free shuttle bus between the fire companies (shuttles start around 4:45 p.m.)

Balloons and Bingo at the Final Debate Watch Party!

It is now exactly three weeks before Election Day – it’s been a long and winding road, but we are finally nearing the end of this very strange trip. The third and final Presidential Debate is tomorrow, Wednesday, October 19, 2016!

We’ll be celebrating with balloons and bingo at our final UPDC Debate Watch Party for 2016, along with some refreshments, and running commentary, cheers, and boos from those gathered around the TV.

We’ll also be doing some local phone banking before the debate, from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.; primarily calling up local democrats and reminding them to get out to vote on election day.

Then we’ll fill our glasses, each choose a debate bingo card (there are prizes!), and settle in for the start of the debate at 9 p.m., followed by our own analysis, live Daily Show, and live Late Night with Colbert debate coverage. Come when you can, stay as long as you like. All democrats and Hillary Clinton supporters are welcome – 124 Washington Street, East Greenville, PA.

Yard Signs!

We have a limited number of Clinton/Kaine signs, some Josh Shapiro for Attorney General signs, a very few Joanne Jackson for State Representative signs, and by Monday night we will have a few Katie McGitny for Senate signs.

If you’d like some for your front yard, you may pick them up at any time in East Greenville. In a few cases we may even deliver! Show your support and let “secret supporters” in town know that they aren’t alone.

Email updemclub@gmail.com for more information or to reserve a sign – all free!
