|Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,|
It's hard to believe that 2020 has finally arrived and that we are nearly a full month in! Obviously much is already happening in the political world and we are eager to do all we can to keep Orange County Blue. AND, paint the Senate and White House BLUE too!
It is time to join DemOC PAC for 2020, if you haven't already! Membership dues are one of DemOC PAC’s top fundraisers, and as you know, 2020 is an election year of the utmost importance.
Membership dues for 2020 are only $100 per year if you pay at one time. But don’t be constrained, especially this year, by our basic level of dues. Many people pay more, up to $2700. You can join at the $100 level or $250 or $1000 -- whatever suits your budget. Please be generous this year, the most important year ever. And feel free to break your dues into monthly payments. Monthly subscriptions start at $10 a month...feel free to give $25, $50, $75, $100 or more.
Please renew online today at www.democpac.org/membership.html
Scroll to the bottom and click on “Join the PAC”.
Why join the PAC? Because there is power in numbers. In 2018 we gave $36,000 to 15 campaigns. We researched what campaigns needed our money and we gave locally, in the state and around the country, and our dollars made a difference. People recognize DemOC PAC and they look to us for leadership, for our programming, for the community we have created and for our meaningful contributions.
Thanks to your help, we have already sent the maximum contributions for the primaries to our OC congressional representatives Katie Porter, Harley Rouda and Mike Levin. We must support elections elsewhere...it is imperative that Democrats take back the Senate, keep the House, and win the White House. Your membership is keenly important to our fight.

Thank you for making a difference! We value your membership and your participation and look forward to working with you in 2020.

Make Super Tuesday extra super this year, and help us set a record for voter turnout at UCI! We will be handing out blue card voter guides to UCI students at the Mesa Court Vote Center, and talking up the importance of voting around campus.

Training at Mesa Court Vote Center throughout the day.
