MEET THE BOARD
Where’s the 14th Ward? What voting district are you in? Here’s a map.
More about our endorsement process: The 14th Ward Independent Democratic Club holds an Endorsement Meeting before the PA Primary where we invite all Democratic Candidates for offices on the Primary Ballot to speak and answer questions. Then all members in good standing vote to determine which candidates the Club will endorse. In 2020 we switched to a virtual meeting and it was extremely successful. We had very good member participation and almost 100% of candidates for the various offices participated.
We publish our endorsements in the PGH 14WIDC Voter Guide that is mailed to most Democratic households in the 14th Ward. There are 32,600 voters in the 14th Ward. Voters here in the 14th Ward value the Voter Guide to help them make well informed decisions in low information races – especially judicial elections.
We have moved up the date of our endorsement meeting so that we can get our voter guide to Democratic voters about the time that vote-by-mail ballots will be sent out by the County Election Department.
We look forward to all democratic candidates’ participation. We reach out to invite candidates once they have filed their petitions. All filed candidates are automatically put on our endorsement ballot.
