Dear Guest,

Special Summer Break Edition Issue #4

Our Summer Break extends through September 13. Meetings will resume on September 20 with a special Poll Watcher Training session presented by the Republican Party Of Florida.

While there will be no General Meetings, Action Teams may conduct separate meetings during the break. Be sure to check with your Action Team leader for details!

And mark you calendars! Our first meeting after the Summer Break will have Tim Abakhin, Regional Election Integrity Director for the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), conducting a special Poll Watcher training session exclusively for Manatee Patriots. This training is a requirement to become a credentialed Poll Watcher for the Republican Party during the General Election. You won't want to miss Tim's essential training on Tuesday, September 20.

Phenomenal Turnout!

Voter turnout during the Primary Election was 31.28% of the electorate. This far exceeded the 25% turnout expected by many. A whopping 54% of the turnout were Republicans with the remaining turnout being 34.7% Democrat and 11.3% of all other party affiliations. If this trend continues into the General Election in November, we can expect more big wins for the Republican ticket!

"To err is human..."

In our last newsletter, due to an unfortunate oversight, it was incorrectly reported that "Mike Bearden" was the winner of the District 4 County Commissioner race. Obviously the winner of the contest was the incomparable Mike Rahn. We apologize for this error and readers may rest assured that appropriate disciplinary action will be meted out to the culprit.

Faith-Based Get Out the Vote Drive Continues!

It may be Summer Break but the Election Integrity Action team is keeping busy by registering new voters prior to the General Election. On Sunday, the friendly team was at the Bayshore Gardens campus of Bayside Community Church in Bradenton. With the General Election just a few short months away, it is important to inform and register as many voters as possible.
