The Stonewall Democrats of Austin will be holding the 2018 City Council, ACC, and AISD Candidate Endorsement Forum on Tuesday, October 9th in the Smith Auditorium of the Congregation Beth Israel (3901 Shoal Creek Blvd). The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm.

In addition to the candidate elections, except for Mayor, which was done at the September 12th forum with the Liberal Austin Democrats, we will also be considering the City of Austin Propositions at this meeting.

In order to be considered for endorsement a candidate must have filled out our questionnaire - see files below (we will have copies of the candidates’ responses to our questionnaire available at the meeting). Candidates will have 3 minutes to address the membership. After we hear from all the candidates that evening the membership will discuss each race then cast ballots.

In order to be able to vote in the endorsement meetings you must have been a member in good standing of the Stonewall Democrats of Austin for at least 30 days prior to the endorsement meeting. Those whose membership has lapsed within the past 3 years will be able to vote provided they renew their membership, which can be done at the meeting or by clicking here. If you are unsure of your membership status email rich@stonewallaustin.org

The entire membership may participate in the candidate forum and the discussion of the candidate's positions but only those members eligible to vote as defined above may cast ballots. A 60% vote of eligible members present and voting shall be required for the endorsement of any candidate.
