This election we want to continue the tradition of Chatham having the top voter turnout among North Carolina counties. We need your financial support now to help us elect Democrats up and down the ballot.
Our goal is $30,000 between now and November 3, 2020.
This is the most important election of the decade. The future of our state and nation depends on a Democratic wave. Our fight to overcome voter suppression and misinformation is more challenging than ever. And we must adapt to campaigning during a global pandemic.
CCDP leadership has refocused on the strategies we can use to Get Out the Vote when we cannot gather in person or canvass. These include expanded calling, texting, mailing, and social media plus a new peer-to-peer effort called Activate Your Networks. We are going to put the Blue Ballot and information about candidates and voting in 30,000 Chatham households.
In addition to winning county races, CCDP is focused on increasing our voter turnout by 3% or more. By increasing our turnout in support of the Blue Ballot we increase the vote in all state-wide races. Those races include the Council of State, the Governor, U.S. Senate, the NC Supreme Court, the NC Court of Appeals and, critically, the President and Vice President. North Carolina is one of the six swing states that can give Joe Biden the votes he needs in the Electoral College.
If you prefer to mail us your donation, please use this form and send it to CCDP, PO Box 1118, Pittsboro, NC 27312.

Each election is important but 2020 is the year we must win up and down the ballot! This is the most important election of our lifetime!.
We have a real opportunity to change leadership in our state legislature, hold the courts and keep our Governor Roy Cooper and elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. 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.
Perhaps even more importantly, the winning party will be in charge of redistricting following the 2020 census. This will have far reaching impact on elections and policy for the next decade. Your help is vitally important! We can't succeed without you.
Right now we are recruiting for Early Voting Poll Greeters. There are six sites to cover. While many more people are voting by mail, about 60% of the county is still likely to vote early in person or on election day. We have a plan to keep you and the voters safe.
If you want to sign-up for a shift please use our Sign-up Genius page.
Do you have questions about working the polls? Email PollGreeters to get answers.
Volunteers are also making phone calls and texting. Sign up for our newsletter and complete the volunteer form to get updates about opportunities.Become a volunteer
Perhaps the most important part of getting involved with your Democratic party is voting in every election. After that you can do much more to help elect candidates and keep people aware of our issues and values. Donating your time and money wins elections. How much of either you commit it up to you!
Do You Want to Engage and Have Impact on Local, State and National Government?
We want you but there are a few things you need to think about as we start to collaborate on taking back our country.
