    The AGM will be held at the 3rd floor Board Room of the Business Centre at the American Club, 10 Claymore Hill, Singapore 229573.

    Please submit nominations and statement of interests via email to Lisa Tucker-Kellogg at lisatk@gmail.com no later than Wednesday, 8 May, 2019.

    For positions that receive nominations prior to the election for the said position, there can be no nominations from the floor of the meeting, as those voting via email will not have the same opportunity to vote for candidates nominated from the floor and voting will already be in process. For Excom positions for which no candidates have a been nominated, nominations may be made from the floor at the election meeting.

    Once all nominations are received, we will email all of the candidates’ statements of interest and a ballot to be reviewed prior to the election.

    Options for voting: (choose one):

    • Vote in person at the election meeting via paper ballot.

    • Vote via proxy at the election meeting. Submit proxy form by Friday, 24 May. Please note that no proxy holder can have more than 2 proxies and proxy holders must be members in good standing of DA Lion City. The nominations committee will recommend eligible proxy holders to people who don’t know who to ask.

    What a difference voters make!

    We want to thank you all for voting and getting out the vote in the elections this week. Whether you attended our phone banks; made calls from home or with friends; posted on your Facebook page; liked our Facebook page so our election information could reach more members; or called folks from home and reminded them to vote, your efforts contributed to the tremendous success the Democrats had on Tuesday.

    A special shout out to our top callers to voters:

    1. Tricia Augustine;

    2. Rachael Hines

    3. Kimberly Hoover

    You all ROCK!

    We can't say it enough, voting and getting others to do the same is what makes the biggest difference! Tuesday was not just a great night for Democrats but it was a great night for America!

    In addition to winning both Virginia and New Jersey Gubernatorial elections, there were some stand out achievements that should be noted. Virginia elected Danica Roem to the House of Delegates, who will be one of the first openly transgender elected officials. Offended by a sexist post during the woman's march by New Jersey Freeholder John Carman, 32 year old first-time candidate Ashley Bennett decided to run against him and won! An unprecedented number of House of Delegate seats in Virginia were flipped by pro-choice women. Several women and minorities were elected around the country proving to the world what America is all about diversity and inclusion.

    There are more critical special elections coming up that we will be phone banking for. Shockingly, the special election for an open seat in the US Senate for Alabama is too close to call, despite the accusations of pedophilia by Roy Moore. Make sure all your Alabama voters friends and family get out to vote for Democratic candidate Doug Jones!

    If you have not signed up for our free online call portal please contact our Chairwoman Patricia Reed at sgp-chair@democratsabroad.org and she will help you get started.
