Democratic Training Session
Please Note the Change of Venue:
Calling all Haywood County Democrats wanting to get more involved in helping us win back our State and change the national landscape.
We’re excited to announce a training session for the Haywood County Democratic Party! This training has been developed to provide valuable resources for our Party to grow into a sustainable organization and to be prepared to increase voter turnout for all Democratic candidates in 2018!
A record number of Democratic candidates have filed to run this year all across North Carolina. Across the country we’re seeing a Blue Wave of Democrats being elected at all levels of government. But that’s not happening by accident! It is a direct result of strong organizing within each county’s Democratic Party!
County Parties need to function year round, not just prior to elections.
Saturday, April 14th, 9am – 2pm at 1902 South Main St., West Town Square, Waynesville

Schedule for the day
9:00 am – Precinct 101: Basic literacy for county and precinct organization.
11:00 am – Listening: Participants will learn how to ask open-ended questions and have a dialogue which can lead to a fuller understanding of why a person feels and believes as they do.
A light lunch will be provided as we continue training.
12:30 pm: Choose 1 of the following 2 Breakout Sessions
1) VoteBuilder: VoteBuilder is the best voter contact tool currently available. It allows us to organize our data, identify and talk to specific groups of voters that we need to target, manage our volunteer teams, and track our progress.
2) Phone Bank / Canvass: Learn how to organize phone banks and canvasses for the purpose of recruiting volunteers, gathering data, and providing information that will lead to increased voter turnout for Democratic candidates.

ions. Continuous operation means recruiting volunteers, fundraising, maintaining voter files, and being aware of issues that affect all people in our communities. Specific training information to accomplish these tasks is listed below.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR! Please make every effort to attend so we can be better organized as a County Party. Any campaign volunteers are also welcome!
Fair Courts, Fair Votes
Once again, politicians in Raleigh are planning more bad laws that will hurt Western North Carolina voters.
Legislators won’t return to Raleigh until May 2018; but some have already threatened to gerrymander our state courts, take control of the N.C. Supreme Court, and even rewrite our constitution to enshrine limits to voting access. And that could only be the beginning. But it’s not too early to fight back.
