CSD 2017 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 you to schedule a brief interview with our screening committee and address the membership at our endorsement meeting, at which the vote takes place.

In anticipation of this year’s September Primary we will be endorsing candidates in Cleveland, East Cleveland, Lakewood and North Olmsted. To access your 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. The entire survey should take you no longer that 20 minutes.

When you have completed the questionnaire, click submit and your answers will be stored securely to protect your confidentiality. Please be aware that you must be a registered Democrat to receive our endorsement.

If you have questions, please contact stonewall.endorsements@gmail.com.

Please submit your questionnaire as soon as possible, but no later than July 1, 2017. After your completed questionnaire has been received, you will be contacted to arrange an interview with our screening committee.
