96 Days Until Election Day

Change is coming to Alamance County with your vote.

Education: A whole new ball game.

Under normal circumstances, the Board of Education is in charge of the public schools within our school district. The Board sets the school system budget and decides who runs your schools, where kids go to school, how big classes are, and even what textbooks are used. They also set the disciplinary policy for the district. Now they also have to manage the education of Alamance students during a global health crisis.

This year there are 4 open seats on the Alamance Board of Education and we have 8 great candidates. Click on the candidates names below for their individual websites or HERE for more information

Education During Covid: Protecting Rural Schools

Today at 6 PM – 7 PM

How do we create a movement to ensure that rural children, parents, teachers, and schools thrive despite the troubled economy and pandemic?


We can not allow the pandemic and resulting economic crisis to plunge our rural schools deeper into poverty and inflame existing racial and geographic inequities. In this webinar, we will discuss the challenges facing public education in our rural communities as well as the solutions that will protect both children and teachers.

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


$20 for 2020

Help the Democratic Women of Alamance County Honor and celebrate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment by donating $20 for 2020, the 100 year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment which guaranteed and protected women’s constitutional right to vote.  Donate Here


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

  1. I would really appreciate being able to find ANY information about Board of Education candidates. I do not use facebook and it doesn’t seem to be an appropriate or an accessible platform for voters to have to utilize to actually learn about candidates. As a parent of an ABSS student, I am very disappointed.

    1. Hi Angela, I’m sorry you’re having difficulty finding the information. We do have information about the Democratic candidates for school board up on the website. If you click on the tab that says 2020 Democratic Candidates I think you will find a link that says School Board Candidates. We have links to all of their websites or campaign Facebook pages there. Here is a link to the Board of Education candidates page on our website. https://alamancedemocraticparty.com/our-candidates-for-alamance-county-board-of-education/
