Lafayette County Dems performed better in this election than we ever have before:
More than 150 volunteers, about 50 of whom canvassed.
4000 doors knocked.
Approximately 4500 postcards to voters written and mailed.
2000 calls made to GOTV on Monday and Tuesday.
40 poll watchers.
Approximately $7000 raised this year.
A thousand votes more than we hoped for, for an Espy win in this county.
53.5% voter turnout, which is equal to a presidential election year, and unprecedented for a midterm election.
Where do we go from here?
- Support Mike Espy in the runoff election on Tuesday, November 27th. Mississippi needs him in the US Senate! He would be our first African-American Mississippi Senator since Reconstruction, and our first Democratic Senator in 30 years.
- Come to the Lafayette County Democratic Executive Committee election discussion: Monday, November 12, 5:30 pm at the Greenroof Lounge (top of the Marriot on Jackson Ave.).
- Begin working on the 2019 election for our local and state races now! We must identify candidates and qualify candidates before the March 1 deadline.
