Chaldeans Called to Vote in Tuesday August Primary
By Chaldean Caucus :: Monday, August 2, 2010 :: 50555 Views :: Opinion and Editorials

Chaldean Caucus of Michigan is a non-partisan group of politically knowledgeable Chaldeans.  We serve the Chaldean community by engaging and encouraging Chaldeans to be more politically active.  Some of our efforts include helping Chaldean candidates run for office, registering and encouraging Chaldeans to vote, and educating the community about local politicians and where they stand on issues important to the Chaldean community.

We use our community culture as a measuring stick in responses to questionnaires, researching the candidates, reviewing voting records, and making these recommendations for our community.

The following candidates are officially endorsed by the Chaldean Caucus of Michigan.  All Chaldeans are encouraged to go out and vote Tuesday August 3rd in the Michigan primary.  We tend to list only those offices where a large Chaldean population exists.  If your particular city or district is not listed please contact us for a custom guide.  You may VOTE in ONLY ONE party's primary - either Republican or Democratic.  If you attempt to vote in more than one party's primary, your ballot will be invalidated.  In a Primary election, voters CANNOT "split their ticket" for the Partisan offices.
