WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

There are over 165,000 registered Democrats in Guilford County.  We need your help to reach them all.

ORGANIZATION: Organized precincts are the foundation upon which a healthy party structure is built and is critical to electing Democrats at the local, state and federal level. An organized precinct helps us:

  • Recruit and Engage Volunteers
  • Get out the Vote
  • Ensure full representation at the County Executive Committee

RELATIONSHIPS:  You won’t just be building the Party infrastructure—which is so critically important!  You will also be building relationships. Organizing your precinct is a fantastic way to meet your like-minded neighbors and build true friendships that will last a lifetime.

REPRESENTATION:   Representation matters! Only ORGANIZED precincts get to vote in matters of Local politics and Democratic Party business.  Examples include:

  • Defining the Party’s Platform
  • Electing Local Party Officers
  • Electing Delegates to District and State Conventions/Committees
  • Electing Board of Elections Officers
  • Replacing Local Democratic Officials who cannot complete their terms (ex. County Commissioners, School Board, etc.)

Be the Change!
