A Call to Action for Volunteers
Election Day is 81 days away!! And there is a LOT of work still to be done. Our candidates are working extremely hard canvassing, phone banking, getting out in the communities around Catawba County.
But we as Democrats must step up to help get out the base come election time. With our new campaign coordinator, September McCrady, at the helm, we have a lot of exciting and essential plans on the agenda, beginning with a Democratic Party phone banking session Saturday, Aug. 18th, from 2-4 p.m. at the Dem Headquarters. Please come out and lend a hand. Bring your laptop and phone if you can.
If you check the calendar on our new website, you'll see that every single day is chock full of activities with various campaigns. You can come out any time to help any of these candidates maximize their reach.
