Recap of 'Post TDP Convention: What's next?
Everyone had a fantastic time last night at 'Post-TDP Convention: What's Next?' with HCDP Chair and TDP Treasurer, Odus Evbagharu and DNC member Andre Treiber!
The two opened up the discussion by introducing themselves and explaining the importance of the convention. Andre Treiber talked a little bit about Party structure and how the convention is planned and Chair Evbagharu reminded us of the importance of using your vote and getting involved as an activist. They discussed the Party platform, then took questions from attendees about all things TDP.
Thank you so much to the over 70 folks who attended last night via Zoom and YouTube!

Precinct Chair Corner
New Precinct Chairs
If you haven’t signed up already, look for the "HCDP Precinct Chair Group" on Facebook. This private group enables you to learn about important dates and events, as well as highlight issues for and ask questions of our Precinct Chair community.
Don't forget to check the little box on the sign-on page and put a check in the box to bypass the two-factor process for 30 days from the same computer. This step will save you some time.
Find My Precinct
Should a voter need to know their precinct and district assignments, they can use the Find My Precinct utility. From www.HarrisDemocrats.com, under the Elections tab, you will find the utility. Any registered voter can use this utility. Should you need to receive that voter information, substitute your email for the voters and the information will be emailed to you. Give it a try!
Narrow Your Results in a VAN List
Some of you have access to a number of precincts when running a van list but only wish to see the data of one precinct.
This is easy to do. (1) Load your list (2) Edit Search (3) Narrow People (4) Chose the precinct you wish to report on and then run your list.
Get Ready for Knock Knock in a Box
Our Precinct Chair Support Committee is working on a solution for you to work your precinct from early September through Election Day!
“Knock Knock in a Box” will contain union printed cards to leave with voters and a simplified VAN list targeting likely Democratic voters who usually vote only in presidential years. We may even include a vote tripling post/reminder to vote card the chair would collect and then mail back to the voter right before early voting. The “Box” will also include a Democratic slate door hanger that you’ll use for a second pass during early voting.
Look for a rollout announcement in the next few weeks!
