2016 Membership Drive

UAPA began in 2004 and continues to help elect progressive candidates to all levels of government.  We do this by organizing educational programs, debate watch parties, and our website and newsletter, as well as by notifying volunteers of opportunities to help and providing yard signs and bumper stickers that enable progressives to “take a stand”.  All of this requires effort and money and the UAPA Executive Committee has decided to request annual dues of $25, beginning in May 2016.

UAPA Looking for a Letters to the Editor Coordinator

Action Item - Distribute Sample Ballots During Early Vote (October 12 to November 7)

Are you still looking for something to do when you aren’t canvassing or phonebanking for Democratic candidates?  UAPA needs you to help pass out sample ballots at the Early Vote Center, 1700 Morse Road.  For the past several elections, Jody Scarbrough and Carole Depaola have coordinated a program to pass out cards listing candidates endorsed by the Franklin County Democratic Party.  Volunteers are needed to ask people on their way in to vote if they would like a Democratic sample ballot.  That is all!  However, this program requires many volunteers.
