The following week VID headquarters will be open Monday-Thursday, 6:00-7:30 PM and Saturday from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.

As part of VID’s effort to get our endorsed candidates elected VID will simultaneously do a major push to get our congressional candidates, Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, re-elected.  Primary Day for federal candidates is June 28th.  We need to work hard to inform the public that there will be a Primary on June 28th by handing out literature on the street and distributing Dear Neighbor letters in buildings that VID’ers live.  We also plan on handing out literature at the polls on Primary Day.
