Dear Candidates,

On February 28 2021, the Steel City Stonewall Democrats will convene its entire membership to vote on which candidates will receive the organization’s endorsement for the 2021 primary elections.

Our goal is to ensure our membership is well informed at the time of the endorsement vote.

Any questions can be directed to me by email at president@steel-city.org or by phone at 412-956-6446. Completed questionnaires will be posted on our website along with a link to your campaign’s website.We are asking that each candidate submit a short video that will be posted on our website.

We ask all candidates seeking an endorsement to attend our endorsement meeting where you will be given a chance to meet our membership. The meeting will be held on Sunday, February 28th beginning at 1:00 PM. The meeting will be held virtually. An email containing information will be sent on or before February 21st containing the information.

Any new members wishing to vote in the endorsement process must register and pay dues no later than February 25. If you know of anyone interested in becoming a member, please direct them to our website at Steel-City.org.

This year, we will be using a secure, anonymous online  voting system. Voting will start at Noon on Sunday February 28 and close at Noon on Monday March 1 and results will be announced shortly after. An aggregated majority of ranked votes are required to receive endorsement. For Court of Common Pleas, the top 8 vote-getters will receive the endorsement.
