Chase & Cure Canvass

As you know Ricky Hurtado’s race is very close. He is currently ahead by a little less than 400 votes. There are about 800 provisional and problem ballots in District 63 that need to be fixed. Usually that involves an issue with the witness signature or address. We just received the mobilize links to sign up for chase and cure canvass (see below). Volunteers will have to go through a training first before canvassing . Time is of the essence! Please sign up below. Thanks! https://www.mobilize.us/nc2020victory/event/362501/


Thank an Organizer and Then Become One.

Stacey Abrams has dedicated the last two years to registering voters and fighting voter suppression to finally flip Georgia blue.

–Democrat Raphael Warnock came in first place and is now moving on to a January run-off!

–Democrat Jon Ossoff will ALSO likely advance to a January run-off!

–And Joe Biden currently is leading by over 5,000 votes.

None of these results would have without Stacey Abrams registering voters and fighting voter suppression.

The Alamance perspective:

In two years, Ricky will be up for re-election and we’ll be voting on 2 new members of the Board of County Commissioners, a new sheriff, a US congressman and a new Senator. The work starts now.


From Dayson Pasión:

Alamance Burlington Equity Advisory Council

I told you I’m not waiting to get elected to do the work of creating a more equitable public education system for our students and families. Something that I talked about and proposed during the campaign is the formation of an equity advisory council that is community-led and would make recommendations to district leadership. So let’s get to work. It’s going to take all of us.

Message from Elaine Berry

This is a thank you. It is a thank you to ALL our brave candidates who spent months working incredibly hard to earn the right to represent the citizens of Alamance. This is also a thank you to the many volunteers who worked tirelessly in a variety of ways to support those dedicated candidates.

It is also a congratulations to the Democrats who won election: Ricky Hurtado, NC House District 63; Larry Brown, NC District Court Judge District 15A Seat 02; Katie Overby, NC District Court Judge District 15 A Seat 04; Patsy Simpson, Board of Education; Donna Davis Westbrooks, Board of Education; and Barrett Brown, Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor. We are so proud of you and happy for you.

It is also a plea for patience and for fortitude. We need to be patient and wait out the process as remaining votes are counted…and all votes should and must be counted. We also must have fortitude, especially our candidates. To run for office as a Democratic candidate in Alamance is not for the faint of heart. It is a challenge anywhere, but in Alamance County it is a 24-7 commitment where you will likely get attacked online, in person, in a newspaper, and even on signs by the roadside. Yet we ask that our candidates persist, that they learn from a loss, and they run again. And we pledge that once again we will support you whether it is with our dollars
or our time.
Forward together,
Elaine Berry

Close Races from 2020 Election Will Have Week Wait for Results

Written ByMichael McElroy

The wait for election results is on in the battleground state of North Carolina, where election officials will count outstanding ballots and likely release totals next Thursday.

If you, like most of the nation, are looking for closure in North Carolina, you’re just going to have to wait. 

Though the state will continue to methodically count provisional ballots and up to 117,000 late-arriving absentee ballots, there will likely be no updates or lead changes announced until Nov. 12, state elections officials said on Wednesday.

North Carolina is too close to call in the presidential race, with President Donald Trump currently showing a slight lead, and in several key state races, including attorney general, commissioner of labor, and three seats on the state’s seven-member Supreme Court. But, there will be no parsing these races as the extra votes come in a bit at a time. 

Absentee ballots postmarked by Election Day will be accepted until the 12th. Then county election officials will hold individual public meetings on Nov. 12 or Nov. 13 to add the accepted ballots to the totals. 

Canvassing Part of Regular Elections Operations

It is all part of the canvassing process, a deliberate approach that happens every election and is intended to protect the integrity of the vote and achieve an accurate count. It is not to offer clues about the eventual winner. 

In fact, state elections officials said in a news conference, they are not even looking at who is leading whom.

“Regardless of vote differentials, we never stop counting until all eligible votes are counted and added to the final certified and audited results,” Karen Brinson Bell, the executive director of the North Carolina Board of Elections told reporters.

“Until we have all the votes uploaded as part of our canvass certification meeting, that’s when we’ll look to see what the vote margins are.”

The canvassing process will be a lot of work, Bell said, and, by necessity, takes time. 

“The actual casting of ballots has ended,” Bell said, “but the election is not over.”

As it does in every election, Bell said, officials will begin researching provisional ballots which are those cast by voters who may be eligible but who faced questions at the polls about their current address or other information. They’ll count those ballots, process them and accept the eligible absentee ballots. And, again, those results likely won’t be released to the public until Nov. 12, a week from tomorrow. 

Officials will have to research voter histories, conduct audits of each ballot by hand, reconcile the ballots cast with the number of registered voters, as well as other crucial but time-consuming tasks. 

“This is the canvass process defined by North Carolina law and the process that occurs with every election by the election professionals across this great state,” Bell said.

Voter Turnout Set Records

While they will not tell us who won, they will tell us that the election broke all records of participation.

There were 5.5 million total ballots cast and and counted so far, just under 75% of registered voters. A record.

More than 3.6 million people voted at early voting sites. Record.

And nearly 980,000 absentee ballots have been accepted so far. A huge record. In 2016, Bell said, there were less than 200,000 votes by mail.

The participation rates, said Damon Circosta, the NCBOE chair were “simply astounding.”

Statement From Elaine Berry, Chair ACDP:

What happened October 31, between Graham police officers and Alamance County deputies and unarmed peaceful protesters is unacceptable. Law enforcement officers used chemical irritants against men, women, and even children who were exercising their constitutional right of assembly and celebrating the importance of voting. The aftermath led to 17 or more participants being arrested and charged. If we have learned nothing else from the tragic events of recent months, we should have learned that law enforcement officers should do everything possible to de-escalate tensions in such situations, not inflame them.

The Alamance County Democratic Party is committed to the protection of every citizen’s access to voting. Whether or not it was intended, the actions of law enforcement officers yesterday may have resulted in voter suppression.
Finally, in order to prevent any repeat of the events that occurred in Graham yesterday, the Alamance County Democratic Party calls for a thorough and independent review of the actions of the Graham police and Alamance County deputies at the rally yesterday.

This is not apartisan issue. This is a civil rights issue.

99 Reasons to Flip NC

1. TO RETURN TO THE PEOPLE OF NORTH CAROLINA THEIR SOVEREIGNTY

North Carolinians deserve a government that truly represents the people. From drawing unconstitutional congressional and legislative maps (#7), to seizing power from the executive and judicial branches of government (#24), to continuous efforts to suppress voting (#3), the GOP-controlled legislature has attacked the basic democratic institutions of our state at every turn. It’s time to restore a functioning democracy in North Carolina.

99 Reasons to Flip NC

1. TO RETURN TO THE PEOPLE OF NORTH CAROLINA THEIR SOVEREIGNTY

North Carolinians deserve a government that truly represents the people. From drawing unconstitutional congressional and legislative maps (#7), to seizing power from the executive and judicial branches of government (#24), to continuous efforts to suppress voting (#3), the GOP-controlled legislature has attacked the basic democratic institutions of our state at every turn. It’s time to restore a functioning democracy in North Carolina.

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!

of

Early Voting!

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!

Total Votes cast by Dem 24,330 , Una 17,745 , Rep 22,455

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

2. Sample ballots are available through the Voter Search tool: https://vt.ncsbe.gov/RegLkup. Sample Ballot for District 63 Sample Ballot for District 64

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.

Make Your Plan to Vote!

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.

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.

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

99 Reasons to Flip NC

2. TO END THE GOP’S WAR ON THE POOR

From failing to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (#17), to cutting funding for public education (#8), to shredding the social safety net (#15), all while providing huge tax cuts for the rich (#18), the NC GOP has passed a wave of regressive policies over the past decade that can only be described as a war on the poor. We need make sure the NCGA works for everyone – not just wealthiest among us.

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.

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

3. TO PROTECT THE SACRED RIGHT TO VOTE

From the racist and unconstitutional “monster” voter law of 2013 (#97) to efforts make early voting more difficult (#55) to the passage and unconstitutional implementation of the Voter ID constitutional amendment (#22), the GOP has attacked voting rights again and again, aiming to make it difficult for African-American, poor, and elderly North Carolinians to vote, thereby cementing their majorities in the NCGA for decades to come. We should be making it easier to vote, not harder. Fifty years ago, many civil rights leaders across the South gave their lives to ensure the right to vote. We need to protect that sacred right.

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.
