Precinct Cluster Events to Meet the Candidates

The events listed below have been planned to give precinct members an opportunity to learn more about the 2018 candidates and to strategize about ensuring maximum voter turnout for the November 6 Election.  Please mark your calendars and plan to attend.  High voter turnout is going to be the key for Democratic victories.

A few local races are critical! Greg West for Tax Collector, Rhonda Schandevel District 118 for NC Representative and Joe Sam Queen District 119 for NC Representative. It is so important to make sure our local government has the people we need in office. I am sure most of you have heard about a tax collector. This is a chance to get a seasoned tax collector that will not embarrass the county. Greg West is a wonderful candidate so please come meet him.\
