A Note from the Chair:

These are unprecedented times indeed. Never in our lifetimes have any of us seen anything like what is ravaging our community and entire world at this time.  I hope that each and every one of you is holding up OK, and if not, please reach out to me at gjbadey@lawbsd.com. The measures that have been put in place are absolutely necessary ones to preserve health and safety, but I know full well that they are also causing significant other collateral issues and we are here to support you.  At times like this, community support is more necessary than ever.
 
I apologize for the delay in getting back to everyone about our virtual meeting, but I had expected to be able to provide much more specific election information by now. Our Primary Election scheduled for April 28th has been postponed until June 2nd, although there is still some uncertainty. Discussions have apparently involved everything from a 'normal' but rescheduled election, to a scaled-down in-person presence where the number of polling places would be drastically reduced, to a mail-in-only election, all in an effort to address the challenges of the coronavirus. I am hopeful that sometime soon we will have more information and guidance on these issues. My thoughts were that a meeting will be more productive when we have more specific guidance.  Otherwise, we will all have many more questions than answers.  

In addition, we still have the issue of contested endorsements for the Primary. The formal challenge to the Delaware County Democratic Committee (DCDC) February 2, 2020 Convention endorsements has finally reached the PA Democratic State Committee (PA Dems) for a decision. Again, I am hopeful that we will soon have more information and guidance on this as well and will bring that to our next meeting.
 
Regardless of what decisions are made, this newsletter shall serve as formal notice that our next Radnor Democratic Committee (RDC) meeting will be on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at our normal 7:00p.m start time.  This year, April 15th will not be 'tax day' so mark your calendar for the RDC meeting.  We will be holding the meeting remotely on the "Zoom" platform. I will be in touch over the next week or two to fill you all in on the issues and log-in details which you'll need to know in advance of our meeting. Among the agenda items will be to consider, discuss and vote on whether to endorse any race(s) for the Primary.

I’d also like to remind our Radnor community that both our School Board and Commissioners are continuing to do their work and holding public meetings virtually on You Tube with platforms included for public comment.  If you have any questions about how to access either of these meetings, please reach out to Board of Commissioners President Jack Larkin at 610-696-8225 or jlarkin@radnor.org or School Board President Susan Stern at 610-724-2919 or Susan.stern@rtsd.org

Last, if you or anyone you know needs help during these trying times (picking up groceries prescriptions, etc. or just some reassurance and a sense of connection), please reply to this email and I'll try to make sure you get the help you need.  While we must continue to adhere to physically distancing from one another, we also need to maintain social and emotional contact and rely on one another in these difficult times.

Democratically yours,
George Badey
Chair, Radnor Democratic Committee

These are uncertain times for all of us. With the election fast approaching, I wanted to take a minute to inform you all about a new program accessible to all Pennsylvanians: vote by mail. Thanks to a new law passed in 2019, Pennsylvania now has no-excuse mail-in voting. That means you can get your ballot mailed to your home -- no need to go to your polling place. This process takes about two minutes, but it can be complicated, so we're going to walk you through step-by-step instructions on how to request your mail-in ballot. 

If you have a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or photo ID: you can apply for your mail-in ballot online at www.votespa.com/ApplyMailBallot. You'll be asked three questions: are you a military or overseas voter, will you be absentee from your home on the date of the election, and do you have an illness or physical disability. This is to determine whether a mail-in or absentee ballot is right for you. If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you will be directed to apply for an absentee ballot. If you answer "no" to all, you will be able to apply for a mail-in ballot.
