97 Days Until Election Day

We have 97 days to get people registered to vote, inform them about candidates, assist with voting-by-mail, communicate about early voting, and make sure that Democrats are elected on November 3.


This year we have an opportunity to vote for lasting, positive change in the lives for many in Alamance County.

Alamance County Board of Commissioners

Today, citizens depend on county government more than ever before, which makes it more important that dedicated people run for the office of county commissioner.

  • The County Commissioners set the budget for public schools and Alamance County Community College from money provided by the state. Commissioners set property taxes and can choose to add county money to the school budget. They decide he timing and amount of local bonds for new school construction and repairs for existing buildings.
  • They determine how much money is spent on law enforcement in the county.
  • The commissioners prepare, review, & decide on annual
  • county budget
  • The Commissioners pass the budget that funds county public health, mental health services and public health.

Change is Coming to Alamance County!

You can be part of it.

North Carolina Broadband Survey

North Carolina State IT Department and Broadband Office Announce Broadband Survey and Encourage Statewide Participation

Secretary of N.C. Department of Information Technology and State Chief Information Officer Tracy S. Doaks is urging the public to participate in the new North Carolina Broadband Survey, launched today by the NCDIT’s Broadband Infrastructure Office.

“Reliable internet access is crucial for getting North Carolina back on its feet so that students can learn, teachers can teach, businesses can grow and communities can connect,” said Secretary Doaks. “As communities begin to survey their citizens, we will gain a better understanding of North Carolina’s internet speeds and need, which is critical for building strategies to achieve affordable broadband access for all.”

The five-minute survey was created in collaboration with the Friday Institute at North Carolina State University. The survey can be taken online for users with internet access and by phone for users without service and will be available in both English and Spanish.  

To access the online survey, visit: ncbroadband.gov/survey. Residents without internet service, but with phones capable of text messaging, can text “internet” to 919-750-0553. Standard text messaging rates will apply.

Residents with land lines or cellphones that do not have texting capability, may call 919-750-0553. The interactive voice response system will guide them through a series of short questions to obtain their address and register it in the database as having no internet capability.

Gov. Roy Cooper has made expanding broadband access a priority with the goal of affordable access for all North Carolinians. Executive Order 91 established a task force on connecting North Carolina to help achieve this goal.

Give Your Time at Election Time.

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

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. More Information HERE
