Colorado Voter Information

  • Eric gave a brief rundown on our member trend numbers
  • Generally we take close to 2/3 of our membership between 18-45
  • Slight tendency for male membership in progressive communities 
  • Longmont is a promising city within the Front Range,  El Paso County numbers also demonstrate relative strength (perhaps in part due to a strong Unity candidate in 2020)
  • Elijah will help make a graphics page, heat map

County Websites

2022 Candidates

  • Donnie Harris on the call for Indiana Senate 2022.
  • He discussed some of his platform – Climate, Civilian Enforcement
  • Running against Todd Young
  • Note that there will be a requirement of 2% of the votes for Sec. of State for petitioning on the ballot (during the 118 period in the spring of 2022).  
  • He will need help and Unity Party of America will assist
  • Press release forthcoming

Media

  • National Media Deficit (lame duck period)
  • Bill knows national anchors and others are opening his emails, we’re just looking to get picked up more
  • More traffic on unityparty.us than RNC site on at least one point in the past
  • New Content on our own sites trumps social media – Generate more!
  • SEO
  • Paid Advertising may not be cost-effective

Why Unity? – Generate content, videos, and letters on what brought us to our political movement.

Ended 2:15 MST.
