A Petition for Sunday Voting and an Additional Early Voting Site to Improve Voting Access and Safety for African Americans in Alamance County.

Dear Alamance County Board of Elections Members,

We urge the Alamance County Board of Elections (BOE) to address the needs of voters in Alamance County, and African American voters in particular, by the adoption of two measures to improve voting access and health safety during the upcoming 2020 presidential election. We ask that weekend early voting include the addition of a day of Sunday voting, and we ask that early voting locations include the addition of a fifth early voting site located in North Burlington. 

Sunday is the only day many voters can conveniently vote, and African Americans are especially underserved when denied the option of Sunday voting. African Americans in Alamance County voted on weekends during early voting at almost double the rate as compared to weekday early voting in the 2016 presidential election. Adding the option of Sunday voting in Alamance County is essential to ensuring voting access for the county’s African American voters.

Alamance County’s African American voters have also been underserved by the county’s failure to provide an early voting site in North Burlington. The North Burlington zip code, the area of Alamance County with the most African American voters, accounted for the second-highest number of early voters in our county during the 2016 Presidential election, but contained no early voting sites. The top early voting zip code, West Burlington, contained two early voting sites. The third and fourth highest early voting zip codes, in Graham and Mebane, both contained early voting sites. To provide equitable access to voting in Alamance County, North Burlington must be provided an early voting site in the 2020 presidential election.

Finally, our national health crisis makes the expansion of early voting a top priority for the upcoming election, and with African Americans disproportionately affected by the coronavirus, health safety at polling locations is consequently an even greater issue for Alamance County’s African American voters. As voter participation surges and voters seek to avoid crowds at the polls, adopting expanded early voting access will be invaluable in the effort to keep voters safe in our county.

To conclude, we urge the Alamance County Board of Elections to provide fairer and safer elections for African American voters by including a day of Sunday voting during the early voting period and by the addition of an early voting site in North Burlington. By adopting these improvements, the Alamance County Board of Elections can provide greater access to the ballot for every voter in Alamance County.

Wayne Goodwin for Insurance Commissioner

Learn more about Wayne Here

Now more than ever we need an Insurance commissioner who listens, acts, and fights for issues that matter most.

We also need an Insurance Commissioner who doesn’t apparently endanger is employees and the public: unlike the one who forces a very early, full, and “normal operations” return of employees to Albemarle Building and has held 50+ mostly maskless, public grant check parties STATEWIDE and photo ops unnecessarily in the midst of a pandemic.

For a common sense leadership, and low, fair rates, as well as a commissioner that puts public safety above politics, Vote Wayne Goodwin for NC Insurance Commissioner!

Give Your Time at Election Time.

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

Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions. More Information HERE

Alamance County Board of County Commissioners

In the last few weeks we’ve witnessed our sitting Board of County Commissioners fail to respond appropriately to the current public health crisis, joke about police brutality, refuse to address respectfully the concerns of so many in the County over the continued display of an offensive statue. All that and also that attempt to cut the budget for the Board of Elections in a presidential election year, in the middle of a pandemic!

Needless to say, we can do better.

The decisions made by our local elected officials have more direct impact on our lives than than the decisions of the federal government. The County commissioners make decisions on funding public health and human services,mental health, our schools, funding for law enforcement, and more. In addition, our votes have far more power in local elections than they do in the national elections.

Our candidates have been to every meeting , march and rally in the county. They’re out at every opportunity volunteering at the food pantries and handing out personal protective gear to essential workers.

There are three open seat this year on the County Board of Commissioners and we need to make sure that these three fine people are sitting in those seats in the future. Our candidates are not running against each other. They are running together to make Alamance County a better place for all of us. Vote for all three. They are stronger together!

Kristen Powers

Kristen lives in Saxapahaw, where she enjoys living near the Haw River and eating pimento cheese sandwiches at the General Store.  As the board chair of Benevolence Farm, a non-profit in Graham, NC, that supports women transitioning from prison, Kristen knows first-hand the importance of serving others and the difference it can make in the lives of those in her community.

It was on her family’s farm off of the Highway 54 corridor that Kristen learned how a small group of dedicated people working together could accomplish the most difficult tasks.  It was this work ethic that led her father to encourage her to stop complaining and do something about the problems in her community. She did just that.

From organizing her 3rd grade fundraiser to save the grey wolves, to a high school project to create an organic garden to support local food shelters, Kristen has seen what is possible when we work together with a vision to create a better community.

That’s why this campaign is different. It’s not about one person or set of ideas, but it is about all of us in Alamance County working together to find the solutions to problems that we face everyday.  

Kristen has many achievements. She has won awards, made films, and fought through personal losses and tragedies. And even though these may seem like personal achievements, they were all made possible because of the community that surrounds her and the people in her life.  The same is true with campaign. This campaign is about the people of Alamance County. It is about the prosperity and hardships of our loved ones that connect us together. This campaign is about finding ways to move forward together, building a stronger future for us all.  

Kristen is ready and willing to help lead Alamance County forward, supporting and supported by the community that connects us all. Powers 2020.

Since arriving in Alamance County decades ago, I’ve been passionate about our community,helping to improve life here for everyone. I’ve done this through my career in healthcare administration and through my extensive community service with public education, racial equity, health care and mental health, the elderly, our youth, the arts, and poverty. Yet, I never aspired
to be a politician or to hold public office until I served on the school system’s vision plan
committee.

Then, I realized I could make a difference for our schools and our youth as a county
commissioner. I ran, won, and proudly served as the only Democrat on the Board of
Commissioners for four years.

I’m proud of my accomplishments during my term around public education, economic development and attracting good jobs, public transportation, environmental issues, and my work with law enforcement to reduce the number of persons with mental illness in our jail. But while progress was made, my work is not done. That is why I am running again for a second term and ask for your vote.

I want to see Alamance County be the place where young people will WANT to settle, have successful careers, and raise their families, an inclusive community free of biases and prejudices where everyone can be successful.

Experience matters. At Alamance Regional Medical Center, I served for 35 years as a member of the senior executive team. My work there and throughout the community has given me the background, values, and skills that are truly relevant and invaluable in serving as your commissioner once again. I know how to think strategically, budget and invest, collaborate with others and build bridges, work with all kinds of people, establish relationships to get things done, and work on teams effectively.

I’m ready and excited to serve you again! I ask for your vote on November 3. Visit my website at bobbyrd.us. Donations are needed and welcomed: http://www.bit.ly/electbobbyrd Thank you!

Being elected as the first black woman to the Alamance County Commissioners board is important to me. “When you don’t see yourself you feel invisible.”

Government should be a reflection of the people it serves. Poor, working class, homeless, LGBTQ, black and brown communities all deserve a seat at the tables when discussing issues within our county.

Hearing differing views from various lenses and experiences is important.

Representation is as important to the present as it is to the future. Voting for me for County Commissioners is a sign of change and inspires black, brown children and all girls to be whatever they want to be, even a politician!

I’ve always wanted to be a politican and lawyer, neither of which I thought was possible. Growing up I didn’t known any black politicians and just within the last few years met black women lawyers.

I have been told that I’m not the typical politician because of my lack of political experience. However my lived experience with public housing, EBT, Medicaid, WIC, criminal justice system and even homelessness can not be learned in school. Although not typical, neither has my path to escape the vicious cycle of poverty.

I have allowed the fact that I lacked political experience, the education degrees, money and even my race to keep me stagnant for far too many years. I decided to stop wishing for change and become a part of the changes I wanted to see happen. So, after years of community service and organizing, I decided to enter the crowded county commissioner race. Thankfully with your support I won in the primaries to become 1 of 3 Democratic candidates for county commission.

I continue to ask for your help, support and vote to become the 1st Black Woman to gain a seat ( 3 seats will be open) on the Alamance County Commissioner Board. Can I count on your vote in the General Election on November 3, 2020?
Would you donate today to show you’re standing in solidarity with us https://secure.actblue.com/donate/supportdjc ?
Only Alamance County citizens can cast their vote for me but donations can be given from anywhere in the country. Let’s break barriers together and show that #representationmatters.

NC Supreme Court

Chief Justice Cheri Beasley

From NC Lawyers Assistance Program:

Cheri Beasley is the first African-American woman in the North Carolina Supreme Court’s 200-year history to serve as Chief Justice.  She has been on the state’s highest court since 2012 and was appointed by Governor Cooper to serve as Chief Justice in March of 2019.

She began her judicial career as a district court judge in Cumberland County where she served for a decade before being elected to the Court of Appeals in 2008.

While she believes passionately in having an independent judicial branch that administers justice fairly, Chief Justice Beasley also knows the courts can play an important role in helping people better their lives. That’s why she is working to engage schools, law enforcement, faith leaders, and other stakeholders in discussions about important community issues.  And by implementing online services and increasing the number of specialty courts, she’s also working to make the judicial system more accessible to all North Carolinians.

Chief Justice Beasley’s commitment to fair and accessible courts extends beyond the halls of justice. She has mentored countless students and judges, lectures at area law schools, and travels nationwide and abroad to promote the rule of law, the administration of justice, the importance of an independent judiciary, and fair judicial selection.

She and her husband, Curtis Owens, are the proud parents of twin sons in college, Thomas and Matthew.

Give Your Time at Election Time.

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

Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions.

Alamance County Confederate Monument call to action press conference

North Carolina Court of Appeals

The North Carolina Court of Appeals is the state’s intermediate appellate court. Currently 15 judges hear cases in panels of three. The Court of Appeals reviews the proceedings that occurred in the trial courts for errors of law or legal procedure; it decides only questions of law – not questions of fact.

We have 5 seats on the NC Court of Appeals on the ballot in November and we have these five great candidates to fill those seats.

Judge Chris Brook has a four part video series on the Court of Appeals HERE

Tricia Shields, Seat 4

Our Court of Appeals is a hard-working court, handling more appeals than any level of North Carolina’s appellate courts.  I am keenly aware that the Court of Appeals is the court of last resort for most cases, and that its decisions are of vital importance to the parties in each case. I’m running to bring the Court the experience, talent, intellect and work-ethic to give every case the individual attention that it deserves.

Lora C Cubbage, Seat 5

I am Lora C. Cubbage, and I bring Integrity, Fairness, Competence, and Respect to the bench, and your vote will ensure that those same qualities remain on the Court of Appeals. I stand on my Oath in that I will protect and defend both the NC and US Constitution. We must continue to diversify our State and work together across isles to make an NC that all of her citizens can be proud to call home. I will continue to fight for the rights of every citizen in our State and fight to continue to move NC forward. I am the right choice at the right time!

Gray Styers, Seat 6

I began my legal career in Morganton as a judicial clerk for Sam J. Ervin, III.  Judge Ervin instilled in me a respect for the rule of law, an appreciation for the role of judges, and an understanding of how our courts are essential to the protection of our rights, the preservation of an orderly society, and the necessary checks and balances of our government.   But most of all, as Judge Ervin would say, “Never forget; our cases are about real people with real issues, not about abstract legal theories.”

Ruben F Young, Seat 7

Judge Reuben F. Young was appointed by Gov. Roy Cooper to the North Carolina Court of Appeals on April 15, 2019. Previously, Judge Young served as Interim Chief Deputy
Secretary of Adult Corrections and Juvenile Justice. In this role, Judge Young worked with state officials to enhance safety in prisons and to improve the rehabilitation of offenders. He has traveled across the State to survey facilities and to speak with state employees about improving the prison system.

Chris Brook, Seat 13

Chris first practiced law in the Raleigh office of Cranfill, Sumner & Hartzog. He then worked as a staff attorney at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice in Durham. From 2012 through his appointment to the Court of Appeals by Governor Roy Cooper, Chris was the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina. Chris was admitted to practice in North Carolina state courts as well as each federal district court in the state, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of the United States. He successfully litigated matters in both state and federal court, including before a rare sitting of the full Fourth Circuit.

Council of State

Jen Mangrum for Superintendent of Public Instruction

In 2018, Jen campaigned for NC Senate. One of her biggest motivations was making public education a priority in the General Assembly. During the campaign, Jen met extraordinary educators and community advocates from all over the state. Jen became a part of the collective voice for Save Our Schools and the Red for Ed movement. One of the highlights of Jen’s journey was marching in Raleigh alongside other educators in May of 2018 and 2019. Together with 20,000 of her closest friends, Jen sent a message to Phil Berger, Mark Johnson and the rest of the NC GOP: public schools are being undervalued and underserved in our great state. Jen continues to work with our Governor, many members of the General Assembly, local-level politicians and activists, and the diverse public education community to push North Carolina forward, towards a brighter future in which our state is widely known for its excellent treatment of children, educators, experts, and the pursuit of knowledge. 

Learn more about Jen HERE


Speaking of Education…

don’t Forget that the Alamance Board of Education, Board of County Commissioners and the NC legislature all play significant parts in how our schools are funded, what is taught and how the schools are managed.

Council of State

Jenna Wadsworth for Commissioner of Agriculture

In her own words:

“This election is so much bigger than just you or I can fully comprehend in this moment. We all know that 2020 is the perfect storm of misguided leadership on both the state and federal level, combined with a global pandemic, record unemployment, massive social justice movements like Black Lives Matter, the deterioration of human and immigrant rights, the eroding away at our civil rights on the Federal level, the galvanizing point for fighting for climate change, a resurgence in organizing for the passage of the ERA, the Times Up and other movements organized around women’s rights and the violence against our gender, legislative fights surround LGBTQ+ rights, and so much more. 

Social, economic, and environmental justice are absolutely on the ballot this fall. We must vote our values. We must support candidates who are unapologetic in their advocacy and efforts towards creating a more equal, equitable, peaceful, and just society. We must support candidates who are not just performative allies, but who have actually been there standing on the picket lines or marching beside us. Never before have we been so desperate and starved for authentic leaders who can act decisively and in a way that is supportive of our diverse communities and inclusive values. This is OUR moment.” Jenna Wadsworth
