2018 Unity Dinner recap

Our 2018 Unity Dinner was a great success! Thanks to all who attended and whose planning and effort made it possible. Here’s a detailed write-up in the Aug. 9 Oxford Public Ledger (click for a closer look).

 

Early voting schedule for the Nov 2018 election

Here’s the latest from Jeannette Carey, our Democratic representative on the Granville County Board of Elections:

We approved the Early Voting Plans today and they will be sent to the State for final approval.  We will have 3 sites open and they will open on Wednesday (rather than Thursday).  They will be open from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM for 13 days and on the last Saturday, they will be open from 8:00 AM until 1:00 PM.  The polls will open at 6:30 AM and close at 7:30 PM on Election Day.  This schedule provides 3 ½ hours each day of extra hours for voting and also provides an additional day (Wednesday) that we have not previously been open.

She also mentioned the challenge of staffing these locations with poll workers. This is satisfying work! If you’re interested, please contact the Granville County Board of Elections.

2018 summer interns (and our Wall St office)

Sharyn (office manager) and Gloria (volunteer coordinator) with the interns.

Meet our first group of interns for summer 2018! They’ve been busy with voter registration, other party work, and advising on how to reach young voters. (See the captions of each photo for details.)

Description:   The Granville County Democratic Party is seeking ambitious, hard-working and dependable students to support our campaign efforts.  We are focused on addressing critical issues (schools, health, jobs) facing citizens in Granville County and throughout the state of North Carolina.   Interns will have the opportunity to learn about these issues and gain a better understanding of how our political system works. They will also help support our daily operations and activities for the upcoming election.

What will you do?   You will be asked to do the following:

 

·        Maintain office hours, monitor sign-in processes and other office duties as assigned
·        Help educate young people on voting for Democrats
·        Help register new voters
·        Help develop youth outreach and Get Out the Vote plans
·        Conduct phone banking and canvassing with volunteers
·        Create content for social media: SnapChat, Facebook and Twitter
·        Train candidates and volunteers on the use of social media
·        Assist candidates on using social media by setting up accounts
·        Assist with Unity Banquet in July
·        Enter data in databases
  • Attend at least 1 Dem party meeting and 1 Teen Dems meeting

How long will the internship last?      Internships will run from June 17 – August 11, 2018

Will you get paid?       $10/hour for up to 10 hrs/ week minimum

Can you choose your days and hours?  Yes, Interns will sign up for a minimum of 10 hours per week each week. We will work with YOUR work, school and vacation schedules.  We also have opportunities for evening and weekend hours. However, interns must show up when they are signed up to work.  You MUST be reliable.

What are the qualifications?  To apply for an internship, you must be at least 16 years old and currently enrolled in high school, community college, or college. If you are excited about politics or just want to learn more about it, this is a great opportunity to see things “up close.” We are looking for people who want to do something DIFFERENT this summer that will help make a DIFFERENCE in the community.

Where will I work?  Most interns will work from our headquarters in downtown Oxford, however there will be activities that may take you out of the office during the internship.
