Direct Democracy Group

The Direct Democracy Group is currently not meeting. Instead the Hamilton Chapter is focused on the coming Federal Election. Since January 2015, we have a Federal Election Subgroup that is meeting to plan activities to foster voter information and an increased voter turnout.

FEDERAL ELECTION SUBGROUP

The Subgroup is meeting monthly. If you wish to join the subgroup please contact Kathie Clark at kclark@interlynx.net. We would love to have you join us.

For events, information about priority election issues and other resources, please visit the Federal Election 2015 webpage.
