    Volunteer Opportunities

    What will Spike Cohen’s badge say?
    Help determine what Spike Cohen’s badge will read at the California convention on May 14-16. Donate now to vote for your favorite! Each dollar donated is another vote for the selected option.  Vote at: https://lpca.z2systems.com/np/clients/lpca/donation.jsp?campaign=23&

    Electronic Voting - Bring a Device!!
    We will be using the Porcupine app developed by our Interim Executive Director, T.J. Ferreira, for elections at the convention. Porcupine requires a web-enabled device (computer, tablet, or phone). While paper ballots will still be made available for those without access to a device, we encourage all voting State Central Committee members to bring such a device in order to streamline the process.

    Electronic Voting - Training Sessions
    There will be three training sessions conducted over Zoom to learn how to use this app.

    Please join us for one of these training sessions.

    Yours in Liberty,
    Mimi Robson, Chairperson
