Monthly meetings generally take place on the 3rd Monday of each month (except during July & August).
We are meeting virtually once again this month, as we come into the home stretch for the 2020 elections. We face unprecedented challenges in voting this year, but we have now have unprecedented options. Choose the one you prefer—vote by mail, vote early at one of the registrar’s offices, or vote at your usual polling place on election day.
Please join us on Monday, September 14th at 7 PM. We have guest speaker, Andrew Whitley, the Executive Director for the Democratic Party of Virginia. He will provide insight on the election poll security and observer program.
Here’s how you join the meeting:
