Voter Registration Drive

The primary election will be on May 4, 2010, and it's time to do the work that will make a difference this year!  We need significant voter registration to KEEP NC BLUE in 2010!

On Saturday, March 20th, the Orange County Democratic Party (OCDP) is hosting a voter registration drive in partnership with our friends at Organizing for America. The OCDP will be at the Carrboro Century Center from 12:30 - 5:00pm. We have two 90 minute shifts (1pm and 3pm) - we hope you'll sign up to work one or both of them!

Show up at the Carrboro Century Center a few minute before your shift begins. If you are not trained in voter registration, we'll take a few minutes to do that. It's EASY and FUN! Then we'll send you out to hit the pavement at local hot spots to find those folks who need to register or update their registration. When you're finished, you'll bring the completed registration forms back to the Century Center.

We hope to see you there!

Democratic Party Precinct Meetings

* Note: Not all precinct meetings are this night.  See the calendar at http://orangedems.com/pdfs/2009PrecinctMtgs.pdf

Precinct organizations are the basic unit of the Democratic Party. Precincts initiate grassroots political action, undertake community organizing and community service, take positions on issues of public policy, and carry out Get Out the Vote activities at election time.

The 2009 annual precinct meeting is where the election cycle leading up to the important 2010 elections begins. The principal matters on the agenda are:

  • Elect new precinct officers
  • Elect delegates to County Convention - April 18, 2009
  • Pass public policy resolutions for consideration at the County Convention
  • Plan precinct activities for the coming year
  • All registered Democrats and unaffiliated voters are welcome to attend precinct meetings.
