There are plans for using newspaper boxes placed strategically throughout town.

Delivers the Newsletter:Edit


For the past three newletters an attempt has been made in rotating the adressing and folding of newletters by precincts. This has worked somewhat succesfully but has not yet been established by precincts as an action that they share responsibility in carrying out.


The newsletter is made quarterly:




Summer: around July 3rd


The newsletter serves as a communication and fundraising tool. Every mailed newsletter includes a donation/poll envelope.


The newletter includes information of interest for Orange County Democratic Party Constituents. When the newletter is near the time of an election a voter guide is included as an insert. For newsletters to be mailed, donation envelopes and century club member acknowledgement notices are also included as inserts.
