Our candidates spent a good part of Thursday preparing and then delivering gift bags to essential workers in east Burlington. As Dreama Caldwell says “Just doing a little to thank all the essential workers for providing in this pandemic. Thank you to all that helped make the bags even more special. We made stops at Dollar Tree, Food Lion, Roses, and Dollar General in the East Burlington area. Thanks to all the essential workers! We are in this together!!!”

ACDP Billboard

As of this morning your generous donations are already at $750!

The ACDP Marketing Committee the has been working to develop a strategy that we believe will raise the profile of Alamance Democrats and help us get the voter turnout we have to get. The Marketing Committee has selected a design that we feel captures who we are and what we value. We’ve got a billboard located on Interstate 40/85 between Exits 145 and 147 picked out that we think will allow us to reach as many potential 2020 voters as possible. now all we need to do is raise some money! Our goal is to fund the entire cost of the $3400 billboard through your generous donations. Please consider donating to this fund, as we believe we have a solid plan to make your dollars reach the most voters and potential voters possible. We’ve been too quiet it’s time to make some noise! Donate HERE

Elaine Marshall was the first woman elected to statewide office in 1996 when she was elected Secretary of State. During her tenure, she has overhauled the office and has made it easier to do business in North Carolina. 

Elaine is one of our hardest working and most respected elected officials, and we need to keep her as our Secretary of State.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Give your time at Election time.

Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions.
