In 2020, Cheri Beasley lost the NC Supreme Chief Justice Seat by 401 votes statewide. – In 2021, only 14 votes separated Salisbury’s mayoral race. – RCDP Chair Hoy often reminds us, “in 2016 Gov. Cooper won by 10,277 votes statewide. Rowan votes for Cooper in 2016 were 21,631.” WE MATTER IN ROWAN COUNTY!

Every hour we have Poll Greeters at the election polls, Democrats are closer to victory.
Poll Greeters work OUTSIDE the polls and are the welcoming face of the democratic values and ideals of today’s Democratic Party. Greeters are volunteers for the local Democratic party and are not paid elections workers.
Greeters hand out sheets (often called slate cards) that include those candidates endorsed by the RCDP for the 2022 election and encourage voters to vote the entire ballot. Too often, voters neglect important judicial offices and local candidates because of limited or lack of knowledge.
