Early Voting Begins February 13, 2020
2020 Primary Elections
The 2020 elections may be the most important ones in which you will ever participate. The importance begins at the top with the defeat of Donald J Trump. We have the chance to impact the US House as well as the Senate and potentially turn the Senate blue. Primaries for NC Governor and Lieutenant governor are also on the ballot. Research the candidates, choose carefully, and VOTE!
Early voting begins February 13. You will not need ID. Here is some helpful information:
- Voting dates

Precinct Meetings Feb 15
Your participation with your precinct makes up the grassroots of the Democratic Party. This election year, all annual precinct meetings will take place on Saturday February 15 at 10:00 am. The business of the meeting is to elect officers for any vacant positions, to select delegates to the Country Convention, and to approve resolutions that will be sent to the county convention and eventually to District, and State Conventions.
Here is some additional information:

- Voter lookup (with precinct information)
