Ten minutes for $14 billion over ten years. 

If you haven’t responded to the 2020 Census, this is the week to do it. NC risks losing funding, political power and more if there’s an undercount.

The 2020 Census is almost over, and North Carolina is running behind. 

This puts our state at a significant risk of being undercounted. Being undercounted would deny North Carolina of the funds and resources it needs to fight the pandemic, recover from the subsequent financial crisis, and build and maintain the bridges, hospitals, schools and other vital infrastructure of our daily lives. 

As The New York Times wrote in an editorial this month, “It’s hard to overstate the importance of the census.”

The Census touches everything. 

It’s used to determine the number of seats a state gets in the US House of Representatives, and how to allocate more than $1.5 trillion that the federal government sends to the states. In North Carolina and other states facing accelerated growth, the data helps leaders chart the best way to prevent swelling populations from overwhelming existing systems. The count also helps determine where child care centers are needed, and where emergency vehicles should route.

An accurate count is essential to these and other things. 

You can call the Census Bureau at 844-330-2020, or fill out the questionnaire you received in the mail. The easiest way is to fill out the questionnaire online here. 


Election Day November 3 – Poll Greeter Sign Up

Going to the polls can be very intimidating for some.

You can be the friendly face of the ACDP on November 3rd and hand out the list of Democratic Candidates to voters. We need to have a greeter at each of our 38 Precinct polling locations.  We can’t succeed without your help.  Sign Up HERE


Poll Observers Needed

The Republicans are going to be putting people at the polls to intimidate and challenge voters right to vote. Trump mentioned it in the debate again.

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. Here’s an article about why this is so important HERE

4. Alamance County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!

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

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

99 Reasons to Flip NC

31. TO PROTECT ACCESS TO HEALTH INSURANCE IN THE PANDEMIC

Over 238,000 North Carolinians have lost health insurance coverage during the pandemic – the 5th highest total in the nation. A full 20% of North Carolina adults under the age of 65 are now uninsured, while the NC GOP still steadfastly refuses to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (#17) despite the desperate situation so many North Carolinians are in as the pandemic exacerbates the already terrible health insurance situation in our state.


Change is coming to Alamance

We have a real opportunity to change leadership in our state and in the country   Every vote we turn out for Democrats increases the likelihood that we will take back the White House and add a Democratic Senator to Congress. 

Be Part of It!
