CSD ENDORSEMENT PROCESS AND INSTRUCTIONS

To be endorsed a candidate must be a registered Democrat, submit a CSD questionnaire and receive 60% of the membership vote. In addition we encourage candidates to schedule a brief interview with our screening committee and address the membership at our endorsement meeting, at which the vote takes place.  During endorsement season, to access the correct questionnaire, scroll down to an alphabetical list of cities and current primary races, then click on your city. Complete the page requesting identifying and contact information and reply to the questions.

When a candidate has completed the questionnaire, click submit and the answers will be stored securely. After the completed questionnaire has been received, the candidate will be contacted to arrange an interview with our screening committee. Please be aware that candidates must be a registered Democrat to receive our endorsement which means the candidate has voted in the most recent Democratic Primary election.
