Reason 63 to Flip NC


Existing state law prohibits guns in schools. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the GOP-controlled legislature passed HB 652 to allow guns on any educational property that’s both the location of a church and a school.. Thankfully, Gov. Cooper vetoed the bill, and Democrats in the NCGA were able to prevent Republicans from overriding his veto.

What is Power of the Pen?

The Power of the Pen is a persuasion and Get Out the Vote (GOTV) effort in which Democratic women are writing personalized letters to registered Democratic women who are sporadic in their voting habits and need to hear from regular votes like you about the importance of this election. Sign up to write 20 letters to fellow Democratic women in Alamance County and encourage them to vote in this essential election year.

Alamance County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!

Check this link to the Alamance County Election Official Application. We especially need elections workers during the 17-day early voting period. We have a new early voting location at the Elmira Community Center in Burlington and we have newly expanded weekend voting, including Sunday voting. This means we need more elections workers than in the past. And the COVID virus has meant that many of our predominantly older elections workers who are more vulnerable have chosen not to return to work this year’s election.

You can also fill out the NC State Board of Elections Democracy Heroes form to be contacted by BOE staff:
