VOTING IN ODD YEAR ELECTIONS MATTERS! KNOW YOUR CANDIDATES BEFORE YOU FILL OUT YOUR BALLOT!
This year may be an odd year election but we hope it won’t be an off year for our Democratic voters. So much is at stake in this election from state-wide judicial races to local school board races. In odd-year elections, it is harder to raise voter awareness in a year without presidential or even congressional races on the ballot. Low turnout races usually mean that certain voters make up a disproportionate share of the electorate — older, whiter, wealthier and more conservative voters are typically more likely to turn out. High voter turnout is vital to a healthy democracy, especially if low turnout means that the electorate is not representative of the population as a whole. Please let family, friends and neighbors know about the upcoming election on Nov. 7 and share the info on candidates at the below links.

2023 SUSTAINING MEMBERSHIP
We are the Democratic Party of Cumberland County working hard to get Democrats elected in every community and at all levels of government! Our county party is supported almost entirely through small local donations. This makes it challenging to budget and plan for expenses such as answering calls, knocking on doors, participating in texting and postcard campaigns, increasing our social media, and training and helping our candidates win their races. You can make a difference with your thoughtful recurring donation by becoming a Sustaining Member of CCDC. Become a Sustaining Member of CCDC at https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ccdcwebsite2020.

You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer,
you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”
