As Democrats we have a lot to celebrate as 2018 comes to a close. Our county led North Carolina in turnout, and at least in Chatham, every Democrat on our ballot won. All our local candidates were winners! Working with our amazing volunteers and community activists, and with the resources provide by our donors, CCDP mounted our best Get Out The Vote effort to date.
Results in the state were also encouraging
- We broke the Republican legislative supermajority … in both chambers.
- We elected not only a Democratic Supreme Court Justice but also three Democrats to the NC Court of Appeals.
- Our state party recruited the most diverse array of Democratic candidates ever in North Carolina. The numbers of women, persons of color, LGBTQ, and young persons who ran were amazing. Our slate, unlike the slate of other political parties here, was an awesome, more accurate reflection of our State.
But elections are cyclical, and it is time to prepare for 2020 — when we can continue to push back reactionary leadership and policies. Our work starts with the 2019 Precinct meetings.
All registered Democrats are urged to attend their precinct meetings. At this meeting you will:
- Learn about the work we are doing for this election cycle and opportunities to help,
- Get to know fellow Democrats,
- Learn about coming activities,
- Elect delegates to the County Convention,
- Review proposed resolutions and vote on what to send to the county convention.
Information on writing and submitting a resolution to your precinct is here. The road to winning elections up and down the ballot starts with your precinct.
