Thanks to our volunteer events team!

When you visit local gatherings and festivals, keep an eye out for Granville Dems. We’re out registering voters and sharing information about candidates and the Democratic platform. Below are some pictures of our volunteers at the recent NC Hot Sauce Festival.

Watch the calendar for other upcoming events, including some that were postponed due to Hurricane Florence! And we can always use more volunteers, so let us know if you’re interested.

Operations suspended during Hurricane Florence

Hi, all. The GCNCDP office in Oxford will be closed for a few days, just until the storm has passed. This week’s calendar events (local festivals) have been postponed, but once they’re rescheduled, our volunteers will be there! Stay safe, everyone.


UPDATE: We will resume normal office hours today (Tuesday, Sept 18).

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.)

Pizza with the candidates!

On April 28, the Wilton Precinct Democrats hosted two of the three Democratic candidates for Granville County Sheriff. Candidates Robert Fountain and Ronald Smith outlined their respective platforms and answered a blizzard of questions from local Dems. (Special thanks to Wilton Pizzeria for their hospitality and great local pizza.)
