Happenings for Gwinnett Democrats

Convention Delegate Elections

It is time to elect our district level delegates for the Democratic National Convention this summer.  On Saturday April 16, we will hold delegate elections for the 4th and 7th Congressional Districts. It is too late to fill out an affidavit to become a delegate, but on April 16, you can vote for one of the candidates running to become one.

To Vote

1.  You must be a registered voter in the district where you are voting for a delegate
2.  You must be a Democrat
3.  You must declare which Presidential candidate you will elect delegates for, Clinton or Sanders.  Once you declare, you may only vote for the delegates who want to represent that particular Presidential candidate.

Say a Big Thanks to Louis Partain and The Painting Crew

Many thanks to Union Painter Louis Partain and his volunteer crew who donated their time to transform our new headquarters to a beautiful gray. Union painters really know how to lay paint down. The paint project was finished on Wednesday, two days ahead of schedule.

We still have more needs:  Tables and Chair- preferably folding, but all in good shape welcome. sturdy shelving units, and any good working office equipment.

Remember… All this is happening at the new Gwinnett County Democratic Party Headquarters

535 Indian Trail Rd, Suite I., Lilburn GA 30047

I want to personally thank everybody who donated furniture and other items to our office. And a very special thanks to Congressman Hank Johnson, who showed up Saturday with his staff and a generous donation of office equipment and furniture.
