Adventures in PAC-ing

Whew, what a week. After several reads of Virginia's Campaign Finance Disclosure Act, calls to the Virginia Department of Elections and the IRS, and several visits to the bank, we're able to get our paperwork off to the Board of Elections, and are now officially operating as a Political Action Committee!

We require admin approval of new user accounts, and we're getting a number of bot-generated spam accounts in our lists. To combat this, we have added a CAPTCHA to the new user account form. Hopefully this will stop the spam accounts, if not, further changes will be need.

We've also fixed the time zone and set date and time displays to match US standards.

DPVA District Conventions -- nominees and resolutions

The convention delegate selection process for localities under the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) wrapped up this past Saturday and Monday, and it's time for us to start focusing on the Congressional District (CD) conventions coming up next month. The CD conventions, which will be held on May 7th, 14th, or 21st, will select the district representatives to the Democratic National Committee convention this July in Philadelphia, where the actual Democratic Presidential nominee will be selected.

Upcoming Elections

Many Virginia cites and towns will be holding elections for Mayor and Council Offices on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. The filing deadline for candidates has passed and the candidate lists are available up on the Virginia Department of Elections website. Most localities do not require party affiliation, so most all of these candidates are running as independents, with the exceptions being Democrats in Roanoke, and a few Republicans in Lynchburg and Crewe.
