Yamhill County Democrats Open New McMinnville Office

August 22, 2020

We're Open.  Come In!

Estamos Abiertos.  Pasense!

1107 NE Baker Street McMinnville


Mon/Lun 4pm-8pm

Wed/Mié 4pm-8pm

Sat/Sáb 10am-2am


Yamhill County Democrats are opening a new office on Baker Street in McMinnville. The office, located at 1107 NE Baker Street, will be open to the public beginning Monday, August 31.

Yamhill County Democrats Chair Omar Sandoval is excited about the opening, and for the opportunities the new space offers.  He believes having a physical presence in McMinnville is an important way to reach out to voters in the county, as well as to support the array of strong Democratic candidates who will be on the ballot this fall.

“This office will serve not only as a crucial resource to Democrats seeking to create change by running for elected office in such a critical election year but also as a resource to the community.  I envision this office as a hub for Democrats of all backgrounds to safely get involved in the political process, and make their voices heard.  I’d also like to thank Vice-Chair Gustavo Guerrero, who spearheaded these efforts to get us one step closer to being ready for the November elections,” said Chair Sandoval.


COVID-19 concerns have pushed many traditional in-person campaigning, fundraising, and get out the vote efforts into more virtual activities.  Candidates will now have dedicated office space away from their homes for their virtual campaigns, such as distraction-free zoom meetings, conference calls and phone-banking.

The new office will also offer campaign merchandise for sale, provide campaign literature, and house a workspace for volunteers and a hosting site for virtual meetings, such as the training events the county Democrats are offering for new candidates.

The Yamhill County Democrats office will be open Mondays and Wednesdays from 4pm-8pm, and on Saturdays from 10am-2pm.


For public health safety during the COVID-19 outbreak, adequate space has been outlined to ensure proper social distancing.  Additionally, visitors, volunteers, and staff will be required to wear facial coverings while inside the office space, and hand sanitizer will be available.

Los Demócratas Del Condado De Yamhill Abren Nueva Oficina En McMinnville

August 22, 2020

We're Open.  Come In!

Estamos Abiertos.  Pasense!

1107 NE Baker Street McMinnville


Mon/Lun 4pm-8pm

Wed/Mié 4pm-8pm

Sat/Sáb 10am-2am



Los demócratas del condado de Yamhill están abriendo una nueva oficina en Baker Street en McMinnville. La oficina, ubicada en 1107 NE Baker Street, estará abierta al público a partir del lunes 31 de agosto.

El presidente de los demócratas del condado de Yamhill, Omar Sandoval, está entusiasmado con la apertura y las oportunidades que ofrece el nuevo espacio.  Él cree que tener una presencia física en McMinnville es una forma importante de llegar a los votantes en el condado, así como para apoyar la serie candidatos demócratas que estarán en la boleta este otoño.

 Esta oficina servirá no solo como un recurso crucial para los demócratas que buscan crear un cambio postulándose para cargos electos en un año electoral tan crítico, sino también como un recurso para la comunidad. Imagino esta oficina como un centro para que los demócratas de todos los orígenes se involucren de manera segura en el proceso político y hagan escuchar sus voces. También me gustaría dar las gracias al Vicepresidente Gustavo Guerrero quien fue un lider en estos esfuerzos y nos pone mas cercas a las elecciones en noviembre. 

Las preocupaciones de COVID-19 han empujado a muchas campañas tradicionales en persona, recaudación de fondos y sacar los esfuerzos de votación a actividades más virtuales.  Los candidatos ahora tendrán espacio de oficina dedicado lejos de sus hogares para sus campañas virtuales, como reuniones de zoom sin distracciones, llamadas de conferencia y banca telefónica.

 La nueva oficina también ofrecerá mercancía de campaña para la venta, proporcionará literatura de campaña y albergará un espacio de trabajo para voluntarios y un sitio de alojamiento para reuniones virtuales, como los eventos de capacitación que los demócratas del condado están ofreciendo para nuevos candidatos.

La oficina de los Demócratas del Condado de Yamhill estará abierta los lunes y miércoles de 4pm-8pm, y los sábados de 10am-2pm. 

Para la seguridad de la salud pública durante el brote COVID-19, se ha consequido un espacio adecuado para garantizar un distanciamiento social adecuado.  Además, los visitantes, voluntarios y el personal deberán usar cubrebocas mientras estén dentro del espacio de la oficina, y habrá desinfectante para manos disponible.
