Twenty-six people attended the Saunders County Democrats’ Annual Picnic at Memphis Lake State Recreation Area Sunday, September 16. The day was lovely, the potluck food was delicious, and so were the hamburgers and hotdogs. The conversation was superb.

Merrion Brooks reported on her recent experience canvassing voters in Omaha. She expected it to be difficult but discovered it was surprisingly fun. She went with a group, and they had lists of names and addresses for the area they were canvassing, which helped get things off on the right foot when someone answered the door.

They also had good plans to follow. Instead of trying to talk someone into voting for Democrats, they simply asked if they planned to vote, commented that they personally believed voting to be important, and said that they were voting for Democrats because they wanted Democrats to win. They asked if the person needed a ride to the polls and took contact information if they did, handed out fliers, and also left calling cards and fliers when no one answered the door.
