An odd number of committee members are recommended, but not mandatory. Members of the Executive Board may volunteer or be appointed by the Chair for the endorsement committee. The membership of the committee shall be approved by a majority vote of the Executive Board.

9.5.2 Multiple Endorsement Committees

The Executive Board may, by a majority vote, constitute more than one endorsement committee at the same time.

All such charters must be approved by a majority vote of the Executive Board.

9.6 Endorsement Committee Action

The endorsement committee shall make a reasonable effort to invite declared candidates to seek an endorsement from the 44th LD Democrats.

The endorsement committee shall determine, to the best of its ability, whether the candidate meets the criteria for the application for endorsement and has fulfilled the steps listed in the procedures for applying for endorsement. Once the information that the committee has received in writing has been verified and considered, the committee shall interview the candidate, preferably in person. The committee shall then deliberate, and may take one of the following steps:

  • Recommend that the members endorse the candidate,
  • Recommend that the members not endorse the candidate,
  • Pass consideration on to the members without recommendation, or
  • Choose to take no action on a candidate beyond informing the members of the request.

Action by the endorsement committee shall be reported to the Executive Board members at the next Executive Board meeting, and to members at the next general meeting, providing that due notice of the committee´s action is posted on the website at least seven (7) days prior to the date of the general meeting, and that action on the endorsement is included as an item on the general meeting s agenda.

If the Endorsement Committee Recommends Endorsement, this is reported to the members, and as the result of a motion to endorse, a vote shall be taken. An endorsement shall be awarded if a majority of the members present vote to endorse.

If the Endorsement Committee Recommends Against Endorsement, this is reported to the members, along with a summary of the reasons against endorsement. A member must make a motion not to endorse or to endorse for further discussion to take place.

If the Endorsement Committee Passes Consideration on to the Members with no Recommendation, this is reported to the members without comment. A member must make a motion to endorse or not to endorse for further discussion to take place.

9.8 Duties of the Chair

The Chair of the 44th shall inform in writing any candidate who has sought endorsement of the 44th of the action taken on that request within seven (7) days of the vote of the membership.

9.9 Reconsidering or Rescinding an Endorsement

If the Endorsement Committee changes its recommendation regarding an endorsement after the members have taken action, the members may reconsider the matter at the next general meeting without approving a vote to reconsider the previous action.

At a general meeting following an endorsement, any member who has previously voted with the majority may move to reconsider the issue of the endorsement. The motion to reconsider the motion to endorse may be debated, and then must pass by a majority vote of the members present in order to consider a new motion on the issue of the endorsement.

Any endorsement shall be automatically rescinded if the candidate fails to file for the office sought, or if the candidate is otherwise removed from the ballot.

Any motion to rescind a candidate endorsement requires a two-thirds vote of the members present at a general meeting, and seven (7) days prior written notice to the candidate. However, a motion to rescind a candidate endorsement that was earned automatically according to section 9.2 by virtue of nomination, and by no other method, requires only a majority vote of the members present at either of the next two regularly scheduled general meetings following their nomination.

The term “committed” means that the final text of the ballot measure is officially known, and is not subject to change, except by court order.  For example, the measure may have been officially filed with the appropriate election authority, a governing entity may have voted to place the ballot measure on a ballot, or a petition may have been filed with the Secretary of State s office so that signature gathering may begin.

The term endorsement by the 44th LD Democrats of a ballot measure means that a sponsoring organization that agrees with the sense of the endorsed position is given explicit approval by the members of the 44th LD Democrats to use the name of this organization in any public or private list or publication of organizations who have chosen to endorse the same position on that ballot measure.

The use of any term other than the word endorsement signifies that the ballot measure has not met the criteria for endorsement outlined in this standing rule.

11.3 Criteria for Application for Endorsement

All ballot measure endorsements shall explicitly indicate the sense of the endorsement.

To be considered, the final text or form of the ballot measure must have been committed.

A sponsoring or campaign organization need not exist for a ballot measure endorsement to be considered, regardless of the sense of the endorsement.  Sponsoring organizations are encouraged to please contact the Chair of the 44th LD Democrats for endorsement requests, or to work through any member in good standing of the 44th LD Democrats.

The Chair shall direct the communications committee to take appropriate action to inform voters of the various endorsements awarded by the 44th Legislative District Democrats.

11.9 Reconsidering or Rescinding a Ballot Measure Endorsement

If the Endorsement Committee changes their recommendations regarding a ballot measure endorsement after the members have taken action, the members may reconsider the matter at the next general meeting without approving a vote to reconsider the previous action.

After the members have taken action to endorse a ballot measure in a definite sense, any motion to rescind, or to nontrivially change the sense of, that ballot measure endorsement requires a new endorsement resolution, which must pass by a two-thirds majority vote of the members present at a general meeting.

A new endorsement resolution is not required if the Chair determines that the proposed change would be inconsequential, such as a synonymous change to the sense of the ballot measure endorsement, an amendment due to a court order, or a newly filed ballot measure that is substantially the same as the endorsed ballot measure.

12 Precinct Committee Officers

The 44th LD Democrats may not endorse candidates for Precinct Committee Officer (PCO).

However, the 44th LD Democrats have a duty to actively work to recruit PCOs to serve the various precincts within the 44th legislative district, and the webmaster may post a list of anticipated PCO candidates on the website.  However, such actions do not constitute an endorsement.

13 Communication

The 44th LD Democrats provide a variety of communications mechanisms for the use of their members, including but not limited to websites, email lists, and social media groups.

The endorsements committee(s) shall follow up with the Chair and Communications Committee to ensure that all endorsements are communicated to the endorsed campaigns, to the state party, posted on the website and social media, and electronically published as a printable flyer.

13.1 Appropriate Use

Without limitation, the primary purposes of these communications channels are to raise awareness of the 44th, of local initiatives or candidates that have been endorsed by the 44th, and of events supporting these endorsed initiatives and candidates.

13.2 Access to Communication Channels

Use of these communication channels is a privilege rather than a right, and as such is subject to the oversight of the Communications Committee.

The Chair, any Communications Committee member, or any authorized moderator may edit or remove content, or revoke posting privileges on a swift temporary basis. Posting privileges may be permanently revoked with the consent of all members of the Communications Committee, including the Chair of the 44th LD Democrats, or by a two-thirds vote of the executive board.

14 Meetings

The Executive Board shall set a regular time for their monthly meeting to be at least seven (7) days prior to the general meeting.
