North Carolina Unemployment Figures
- North Carolinians need support during this public health and economic crisis. That’s exactly what Democrats are fighting for. The Trump administration and state Republicans should offer these people a hand, not make life harder for them during a crisis.
- Rather than offer those out of work real, meaningful help, Republicans led by then-Speaker of the House Thom Tillis slashed the benefits that help people get back on their feet.
- To make matters worse, President Trump is refusing to reopen the health care insurance exchanges to help those who might have lost their health insurance or did not have any before this crisis began.
- American workers need relief — and they need it now. Democrats took action to pass a relief bill that puts workers, not corporations, first. Now, the Trump administration must ensure these benefits get into the hands of workers as soon as possible.
- Republicans, including Thom Tillis, have made life harder for the unemployed. In 2013, Tillis passed the steepest cuts to a state unemployment program in American history.
Poll Observers Needed
The Alamance County Democratic Party alongside NCDP and Biden/Harris Coordinated Campaign is recruiting poll observers to help monitor and report on possible irregularities at polling locations. This is different from poll greeting in that poll observers are there to record and report and help protect all voters. Trainings will be provided as well as PPE (masks, gloves, sanitation stations).If you are interested.

99 Reasons to Flip NC
41. TO STOP UNREGULATED FRACKING IN NORTH CAROLINA
In 2014, Republican Gov. McCrory and the GOP legislature pushed through new rules to allow fracking in NC. The rules were not only overly weak in protecting public health but also completely failed to address air quality concerns, chemical disclosures, or compulsory pooling, an extremely controversial practice in which landowners who do not wish to lease their mineral rights are forced to accept drilling anyway. The GOP legislature also overrode all local moratoriums on drilling – like those in Lee and Chatham counties – denying a voice to the people most affected by the associated air and water pollution. Fracking has not yet started in NC due to legal issues with the GOP’s maneuvers. NC should be focused on the plentiful sources of renewable energy available in our state and end our obsession with fossil fuels.

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
