FOLLOWUP: Elected as a delegate last Sunday? One more step!

10:20 PM: Even if you weren’t part of it, you might recall the discussion of last Sunday’s long-running caucus in the 34th Legislative District (West Seattle, White Center, Vashon, and vicinity). The lists of who got elected are posted – but according to one precinct-committee officer who e-mailed us, urgent action is needed. Here’s the note we received Jennifer Knutson, Precinct 1252 PCO:

Long story short, because they were counting delegates so late … most of the delegates didn’t get their paperwork filled out – and it must be filled out by TOMORROW in order for both Clinton and Sanders delegates to be seated. We need your help getting the word out to our West Seattle/Burien neighbors.

Here’s the link from the 34th Dems.

Here’s what they say:

If you were elected as a delegate or alternate you need to submit a delegate form by Friday to this email address:

Here is the delegate form and here is the Alternate Delegate form.

If you already completed one of these forms on the day of the caucus, you still need to submit again.

Contact Chair Marcee Stone-Vekich with questions. Her contact information is here.

Here is the credentials report for the caucus (PDF).

7:26 AM FRIDAY: See an update from the 34th chair in comments.

    As of last night, all forms have been returned except for one male
    Sanders Alternate.  His form has been mailed to him.  No one was ever at
    risk of losing their seat if they didn’t return the form.  And they’re all in and the list is re-posted with corrected spellings of some names.

    The WA State Dems have confirmed that the delegate report form requirement and deadline -buried in the middle of a paragraph in the back pages of the 34th Dems’ website – was established by and for the 34th Dems, and failing to meet it will not disqualify anyone…though it certainly sounds “official” and dire unless you go out of your way to bird dog Marcee or the State.  

    I hope the remaining Sanders alternate will be contacted not only by mail but by phone, email, and an appropriately-worded “required action alert” at the top of the 34th Dems’ splash page, where it belonged in the first place.  An extended deadline might be a nice gesture, too, in case the poor man panics upon receipt of his form, and/or throws it away, thinking he blew it.  

    The 34th Dems website explanations for the April 17 caucus confusion should be secondary to urgent action items, no? 

Sorry, comment time is over.
