Welcome to the Haywood Democrats

Thanks for visiting our website! 

We have started slowly to open up Headquarters and increase our hours leading up to the November Election. From now up to election Day, Headquarters will be open extended to help you with your needs.
* Monday-Saturday : 10 am-5 pm

Masks are required to enter.

Our Biden/Harris stickers, buttons, hats, and signs came and went like lightning. We are getting more in so leave your name and number at HQ and we can give you a call when we have more! Be sure to stop by to pick up a Democratic Candidate list, browse our array of bumper stickers or pick up a local candidate yard sign. We have loads of merchandise to help you show your support to Biden and the Democratic Party. Check out the photos below.

You can expect to be hearing from us. We re sending postcards out to voters and will be following up with phone calls to voters for whom we have phone numbers. It is more important than ever to VOTE this year!

A complete candidate slate is available including Judicial candidates as well as those for Haywood County School Board, Soil and Water Commission and Sanitary Districts.

A Message from Karen Brinson Bell to NC Voters

It is illegal to vote twice in an election. N.C.G.S. § 163-275(7) makes it a Class I felony for a voter, “with intent to commit a fraud to register or vote at more than one precinct or more than one time…in the same primary or election.” Attempting to vote twice in an election or soliciting someone to do so also is a violation of North Carolina law. See full message here.

North Carolina Court Wipes Out Voting Restrictions Designed to “Secure White Supremacy”

Tens of thousands of people are suddenly eligible to vote in November. On Friday, a North Carolina court dramatically expanded the number of voters eligible to participate in the 2020 election. The state may not disenfranchise citizens who owe fines, fees, and other debts from a felony conviction, the Wake County Superior Court ruled on Friday. And while the court limited its order to those affected by wealth-based voter suppression, its reasoning portends a broader ruling in the near future that could restore voting rights to 70,000 more North Carolinians on probation or parole.

What We Stand For

Democrats from across the state are united by shared values that define who we are and what we stand for. That means fighting to ensure all North Carolinians have a fair shot at a good life, regardless of their background, where they came from, what they’re worth, or who they love.
