We are in the process of setting up a Yulee Democratic Club to help us all catch the blue wave! Ongoing monthly meetings are being planned for the second Wednesday of the month at the County Extension Building in Yulee. Meetings will begin at 7PM. We will need to elect officers as soon as the club is fully established. Hope to see the Yulee folks there on February 13th!

Phone Calls Needed!

Party Leaders,

Duval Democrats have made huge strides in the past two years, turning the county blue in 2018 as a result of excellent candidate outreach, teamwork and smart decisions on behalf of the local party, candidates, elected leaders and hard work from grassroots volunteers and coalition partners. As a result, Democrats have a real opportunity to turn Jacksonville blue in the upcoming municipal races and we need your help!

The local unitary election will be held on Tuesday, March 19th, early voting started on March 4th and vote by mail ballots are already in the hands of voters. Elections will be held for all countywide constitutional officers and all 19 city council seats.

We have added a virtual phone bank to the FDP website that includes all Democrats who have not mailed in their ballot yet. Can you help turn Duval County blue this election cycle by making a few calls? 

For questions, please contact Lisa Peth at lisa@floridadems.org

Thank you for your continued work to elect Democrats across the state of Florida!
