Break the Majority

In the coming months, we will be reaching out to Democrat and Unaffiliated voters across Haywood County to enlist their support for the Democratic candidates running in the November election. To this end, we will be calling on you to help canvass, phone bank and attend events held by the candidates themselves. We will also need volunteers to staff booths at the various fairs in Haywood as well as support the office staff with data entry and other needs. If you have already volunteered, great! If not, or you want to be assured that your name is on our list, please go to the contact page and let us know. Click here! And thank you for helping us in any way you can.
