What do I do if my precinct chair doesn't show up?
He's sick and may or may not be able to attend tomorrow. We're not sure if there's anyone else that will be there that's ever been a precinct chair.

I was a precinct chair some 12 years ago, but there were only 4 people there then (don't laugh!). We had a bit more than double the amount of early voting than usual as of Friday in my precinct. Near 1500 vs. the usual 650ish. I expect we'll have more than 4 people attending this session.

If I do end up having to step in is there someplace I can brush up on procedures really fast?

1. Eeek!
Are you the election judge too?

I'd suggest getting familiar with the resources here right quick:
http://www.txdemocrats.org
Click on the "Precinct Convention" in the left hand corner.

More good stuff is here:

Also, if you want my script, PM me your address and I'll email it to you.

:hi:

2. Pray for rain!
But seriously, I doubt there will be the hoards the media is telling us there will be. I'm expecting maybe 40 at the most.

But today, brush up on the materials at the TDP website, and you'll be fine.

Just my luck. :P

Yeah, I'm reading a mad fool right now.

3. You can do it - come on step up to the plate
Go to the TDP site for the Precinct convention info. It has all the things you need to download. Start with the ABCs of Conducting Your Precinct Convention

Texas Democratic Party Precinct Convention Info

Call a neighbor to help you. You can do this, honestly. You're probably better informed than most people.

Good luck!

6. Thank you for the encouragement
I need it.

I've just finished printing all the info from the Texas Democrats website and I'm about start reading that next.

I have help lined up from the precinct chair's wife. Thank goodness!

I'll be fine. I just wish I had a bit more time to get my ducks in a row.
