The People’s Alliance PAC is working to schedule the 2020 endorsement meeting in preparation for the March 3, 2020, statewide primary election. While there is still much to discuss on the recent municipal election, we wanted to provide an update and notice on several key deadlines for the meeting.
We expect to hold this year’s endorsement meeting on January 14, 15 or 16, and possibly later than that date. You must be a People’s Alliance member to participate in the endorsement meeting.
For existing PA members, and lapsed members who have not yet renewed their membership for the 2019 calendar year, you can renew online at any time up before the endorsement meeting to speak on behalf of a candidate and vote for your preferred candidates.
For people who are considering PA membership and would like to attend and vote at the endorsement meeting, you must join PA at least 60 days before the endorsement meeting--or November 15. While the endorsement meeting may be held later than January 14 due to venue availability, it will not be held earlier than that date, so any new members that join on or before November 15 will be assured of the ability to vote at the endorsement meeting.
New members who join less than 60 days before the January endorsement meeting may attend the meeting and speak on behalf of candidates but may not vote to endorse a candidate at that meeting. They will be able to vote at all subsequent endorsement meetings if they renew their memberships in advance of the meeting.
New members that have joined PA for the first time on or after October 1, 2019, but before the November 15 deadline will be able to vote at the January endorsement meeting. While memberships typically expire at the end of the calendar year, new members that have joined since October 1 will have their memberships extended to expire December 31, 2020.
We expect to notify members of the date and venue in the coming weeks.
