The Bonamici Fifty!
Help turn Yamhill County blue this month with the Bonamici Fifty! If 50 people set up a new recurring monthly donation to Yamhill County Democrats by June 30th, Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici will contribute an additional $2,000 to our grassroots efforts. Increase your impact to better our community with your monthly donation.
Help us fund the YCD office in McMinnville, furthering our mission to work with our community to elect a stronger, responsible government that works in the common interest. Your donation will help us lift the shade and win in 2022!

We’re so excited to announce that we have Pride Flags available for sale!! $2 of every flag sold will be donated to PFLAG Newberg for scholarships for LGBTQ youth in Yamhill County!
Flags are $25. The office is open 3pm-7pm Tuesday or 10am-2pm on Saturday at 1107 NE Baker St, McMinnville. Drop in and say hi to our volunteers, and check out the lending library, too!
*These are the same design, but not the same manufacturer as the one available at Mac Market or through our friends at Pollinate Flowers — ours are a heavier weight material and should ‘fly’ a little more like a flag on a pole, but colors are a little muted so the light shines through. They were manufactured by Flags For Good.

A Word from Our Chair

Yamhill County Democrats
October 15, 2020
As we get closer and closer to the end of the election season (19 days!), I am amazed at the tremendous amount of positive energy in our community! We have connected with over 20,000 voters this season, thanks to our Neighborhood Leader Program and help from our partner organization, Progressive Yamhill.
Our local office hub (come see us at 1107 NE Baker Street in McMinnville!), our personal connections, our volunteer energy, and our commitment to restoring dialogue and decency in our community are driving what we hope will be a historic victory here in Yamhill County.
Ballots are now in the mail to voters. In our lifetimes, it has never been more important to vote. Can we count on you?
This season it is especially important to get your ballot in as early as you can, so fill out your ballot early and turn it in soon. Mail no later than October 27th, or better yet, drop off at a ballot drop box. You can track your ballot here.
And finally, encourage your friends and family to do the same. We’re all in this together, and we need to vote as if our lives depend upon it. Because they do.

2020 is the most important election cycle of our lifetime. It will not only decide our President and government for the next four years but the moral compass of our country. This is the time to act, make our voices heard, and set our community on the right path.
When it comes to this cycle, we must change how we view it. November 3rd may be election day, but it is not the election - it only ends then. We have until then to act. Join me in taking our community, and our country back.

Don't forget to drop by our BRAND NEW OFFICE at 1107 NE Baker St, McMinnville. The office will be open Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-8pm, and Saturdays from 10am-6pm. Biden/Harris signs will arrive by September 8th. Volunteers are needed to keep our office open!
We're writing postcards to voters! Can you help us write personal messages to infrequent voters in Yamhill County? Email:
to help! If you've already signed up, your voter lists and postcards are ready to be picked up at the office.
