VB Dems,

Calling on everyone who wants to elect Democrats on Nov 7 … we need your help!  If you can spend just a couple of hours at a polling station to greet voters and pass out ballot guides, please call me at 757.716.8248 or email me at  This is the best way to help all our “downballot” candidates for Delegate, Treasurer, Sheriff, and Commissioner of the Revenue.  

Questions?  Join us at the Elephant Roast on Saturday--I’ll answer everything for you.

Dave Belote  | Chair
