Philadelphia Committee Person Class of 2018

A recent article indicates 1600 new Philadelphia Democratic Committee Persons were elected in the recent May 2018 Primary Election. It means that many – myself included – are looking for information, for resources, for tools to be able to get the job done. The purpose of this article is to provide a few resources that will make it easier for new Committee People to be effective.

Last month I began compiling a list of web links that would be useful as either bookmarks or as reference information during canvassing. The list of links eventually grew to cover such areas as: voter registration, election results, party organization websites, party bylaws and community resources. These website links are now available under the title of Websites For Committee People.

The list of websites was started in an effort to find information on voter registration. The first two links allow you to print out a voter registration application or to register a new voter online.

The list includes the latest version of the Democratic City Committee Bylaws, often referred to as the City Committee Rules. Recently obtained from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party is a copy of “Precinct Committee Person Guide & Resources” which I like to call “Precinct Handbook 2017.2.0.” Could someone explain why this twenty-seven page handbook is not readily available on the PaDems.com website? Or why the City Committee Rules are not available online either?

Please feel free to share the “Websites For Committee People” with others. Email me any suggested additions you may have. I am a Committee Person in 22-03 and consider myself to be a fellow member of the Class of 2018. Know of a good place to meet?
