Mobile & Print List of 2020 Democratic Candidates HERE


NC is a Battleground State

Biggest 2020 Battleground North Carolina is the only state in the country that is a presidential swing state, has competitive U.S. Senate and Gubernatorial races, and could flip control of its statehouse just ahead of redistricting.North Carolina voters rejected Republicans’ toxic agenda in 2018. Governor Cooper has shown that Democrats can win in North Carolina with Trump leading the GOP ticket.
 After breaking the Republican supermajorities, North Carolina Democrats are poised to take back the General Assembly next year 
The path to the White House and the U.S. Senate runs through North Carolina, and voters are ready for change.Since 1968, no Republican has won the White House and lost North Carolina – to stop President Trump, Democrats must win North Carolina.
  Senator Tillis is one of the most vulnerable Republican Senators in the country and is unpopular and underwater with key groups, including independents, women, suburban women, and military households; Tillis trails Trump’s approval rating with base Republicans by 28 points (92% – 64%). [WRAL].
Following Governor Cooper’s lead putting families before corporations, Democrats are prepared to hold the Governor’s mansion.In 2016, Governor Cooper showed that North Carolina Democrats can win with Trump on the ticket. Today, he remains popular – overwhelmingly, voters approve of the job Governor Cooper is doing [Morning Consult]
  Republican Nominee Dan Forest is out-of-touch, far-right and devise politician who puts large corporations and wealthy interests ahead of North Carolinians and their families. 
North Carolina Democrats have shown incredible enthusiasmIn North Carolina, turnout increased from more than 1.1 million in 2016 with all votes counted to more than 1.3 million in 2020. This groundswell of Democratic enthusiasm sets our party up for huge victories this November.
 North Carolina Democrats are raising the resources and organizational support to win in 2020. 
The Democratic slate is strong! Democrats are excited to once again support Gov. Cooper in his reelection. Gov. Cooper is a fighter for North Carolina families and is working to improve the lives of every day North Carolinians.
 Our nominee for U.S. Senate, Cal Cunningham, is a decorated veteran, business leader, and former legislator who has the experience and drive to defeat Thom Tillis.
 Democrats are carrying the one of the largest female congressional slates in NC history!
 The Democratic Slate for Council of State is 70% women or people of color. In contrast, the Republican Slate is 80% white men.
Democrats Speak to Pocketbook Issues – Not Divisive Social Issues 

North Carolina voters will reject the hatred and division coming from Republicans and their toxic agenda that puts wealthy special interests before working North Carolina families.HEALTH CARE: National Republicans are trying to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions and refuse to tackle the rising cost of health care. State Republicans refuse to expand Medicaid, which would help 500,000 people access health care and create thousands of jobs.
  THE ECONOMY: The economy is only working for some – wealthy special interests and those at the top. State Republicans continue to put corporate tax cuts before our public schools.
  PUBLIC EDUCATION: Republicans continue to prioritize corporate tax cuts over investments in our public schools. Tens of thousands of teachers rallied in Raleigh the past two years because Republicans are underfunding public education in North Carolina. 
BOTTOM LINE: North Carolina is the biggest battleground in the country – and Democrats are poised to win up and down the ballot. Democrats are focused on pocketbook issues like lowering the cost of health care, creating a strong economy that benefits everyone, and investing in our public schools. Voters rejected the Republicans’ toxic agenda of fear and division in 2018 and will reject it again in 2020. 

Alamance County Board of Elections Working Hard for Us!

From Kathy Holland

The Alamance County Board of Elections mailed out over 11,000 absentee ballots on Friday 9/4/20! WOW – This monumental task was made possible by the dedicated, hard working 5 member BOE team and over 20 temporary team members now working with us! We continue to get hundreds of absentee requests daily. Our lobby is very small, so in anticipation of a great number of voted absentee ballots being returned in person, we set up a tent outside of our building. We roped off the line for social distancing and ask everyone to please wear their mask when visiting. Weather permitting the tent is open daily Monday – Friday from 8:00 – 5:00. NO DROP BOXES are permitted in North Carolina. Absentee ballots returned in person require the completion of a Returned Ballot Log for tracking who returned the ballot. Ballots can also be returned by mail. #electionworkinaCOVIDworld#alamancecountyvotes20 See Less

Sara Knotts, Brunswick Co NC election director explains in video the process of processing absentee ballots received thru Nov 2 at 5 pm. Those results will be posted at 7:30 pm Nov 3 (absentee ballots received Nov 3-6 have different process)

99 Reasons to Flip NC

52. TO STOP THE CONTINUED WEAKENING OF OUR GUN LAWS

Since gaining power, Republicans have worked relentlessly to weaken NC’s gun laws. In the 2017-18 legislative session, the NC House passed HB 746, which allows for concealed carry without a permit, eliminates mandatory training, and reduces the age limit to 18. This bill has yet to pass the NC Senate.

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: https://www.ncsbe.gov/get-involved
