11 Days Until Election Day
Early Voting Is ON!
Historicaly the first Friday and Tuesday of Early & One stop voting are least crowded so, hopefully the lines will be shorter than they were the first day. We’ll be getting some of the turnout numbers from yesterday up here as soon as they are available.
It is important to remember that most of the Republicans will be voting on Nov 3 so, stay focused on getting everyone you know to VOTE! In general, our candidates will need between 20,000 -30,000 votes to win.

Early Voting Help from the Alamance Board of Elections
Look for the above image at the official Alamance BoE FaceBook Page and please “like” it for the latest news.
The Alamance County Board of Elections has a new FaceBook Page and they are posting wait times at different polling place during Early & One Stop voting. Updated several times a day.
Also , in general the wait times at our new Elmira polling place are about half as long as those at the Mall or Mebane Arts Center.
Ten Tips For Early & One Stop Voting
1. Voters may cast a ballot at any early voting site in their county. For sites and hours, use the One-Stop Early Voting Site HERE
For more information on judicial candidates, view the State Board’s Judicial Voter Guide: https://www.ncsbe.gov/mailers/2020/judicial-voter-guide. Knowing your candidate choices in advance and being familiar with the ballot will help your voting experience go more quickly. For information about OUR judicial candidate HERE
3. Individuals who missed the regular voter registration deadline may register and vote at the same time during the early voting period. Same-day registrants must attest to their eligibility and provide proof of where they live. For more information, visit https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/vote-early-person. Individuals who missed the regular voter registration deadline may not register to vote by mail. Their only option at this point is to register in-person at an early voting site in their county.
4. Voters are strongly encouraged to wear masks, use hand sanitizer and adhere to social distancing guidelines at the polling place. For more COVID-19 precautions at voting sites, visit https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/voting-and-coronavirus.
5. Voters who receive an absentee ballot by mail may deliver their completed ballot to an election official at an early voting site in their county. Ballots will be kept securely and delivered to the county board of elections for processing.
6. Voters who requested an absentee ballot but have not yet returned it may vote in person during the early voting period or on Election Day, November 3. The Alamance County Board of Elections prefers voters to bring unused absentee ballots to the early voting site or their precinct voting location but by law voters may discard the by-mail ballot and do not need to bring it to a voting site.
7. To avoid long lines, voters should keep in mind that the busiest early voting days typically are the first and last days of early voting. Voters may find shorter lines during regular business hours.
8. The State Board asks that all voters respect the rights of others to participate in the election. Intimidating any voter is a crime. Voters who feel harassed or intimidated should notify an election official immediately.
9. Voters at one-stop early voting sites are entitled to the same assistance as voters at a voting place on Election Day. Curbside voting is available for eligible individuals at all early voting sites. For more information, visit https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/help-voters-disabilities/curbside-voting.
10. North Carolina law prohibits photographing or videotaping voted ballots. Voters may use electronic devices in the voting booth to access a slate card or candidate information, provided they don’t use the devices to communicate with anyone or take photographs of their ballot.
The first day (and last two days) of early voting is a crush. Otherwise, mid-week, early morning or late evening is your best bet. You can vote at any site in your county of registration.

This data is from Wake County but we think you should expect that peak hours will be similar here in Alamance. This chart is for the first day of early voting
Time to GET OUT THE VOTE!
Alamance Democratic Party Get Out the Vote (GOTV) activities, especially those that may be done at home, like phone banking.
We have determined that the best way for us to conduct phone banking GOTV is to work directly with the NCDP coordinated campaign. Some of you may already be working with them. If not, here is the link to sign up to make calls.

An Added Incentive
From Jane Peppler: I’ll be poll greeting for the Alamance County Democratic Party at the City Office Annex in Graham lots of days starting Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and I’ll be giving these signs away to voters who’ll text three of their reluctant friends and tell them to get out and vote. I even have the H-stands to stick them in the ground.
One Stop & Early Voting Poll Greeters
Please sign up to do No Contact Poll Greeting for Early Voting!
We have five locations that we need to staff for 17 days so if you can fill a shift or two it would be a huge help. We are particularly looking for people to help out at the Holly Hill Mall & Elmira locations.
We are lucky to have five One Stop & Early Voting locations this year:
Please feel free to contact Michelle if you have any questions on how we will be ensuring no contact. If you can only do a partial shift, please let me know and I may be able to find someone to cover the rest of the time.
Election Day November 3 – Poll Greeter Sign Up
Going to the polls can be very intimidating for some.

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
Yard Signs & Bumper Stickers are 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
11. FOR BETTER JOBS AND BETTER PAY
While those with high incomes continue to thrive in North Carolina’s economy, the GOP-controlled legislature has completely failed the poor and middle class. According to a 2017 study, median household income has actually fallen by over $1,000 in North Carolina since 2007. By comparison, it has grown by 14-15% in the neighboring states of South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia over this same time period. NC has become a national model of failed GOP tax policy, where large tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy have failed to produce the kinds of jobs and pay that benefit all North Carolinians.
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.
