An organized and functional precinct is the foundation of the Democratic Party. The BCDP Strategic Plan is based on the DNC's 50-State Strategy which is “an ambitious effort to build the Democratic Party from the ground up in every single precinct...” Every precinct matters! Every vote counts! In Buncombe County we will “continue an aggressive and forward-looking effort based on the belief that if we invest in people and invest in our party, we can continue to turn once-red districts and states blue in elections to come.”*
To reinforce our efforts, the BCDP established 11 clusters of precincts to further strengthen Get Out The Vote efforts, provide mentors to new leadership, coordinate volunteer efforts and facilitate communication and fund raising efforts. Clusters build camaraderie, friendship and make electing Democrats a lot of FUN!
Every election year is the most important, and 2016 is no different. Democrats need only 4 more seats in the North Carolina House to overcome a veto-proof majority. Now, more than ever, Democrats need to elect a Democratic Governor who will bring respect back to the great State of North Carolina.
That's why our 2016 Annual Precinct Meetings are Volunteer Recruitment Events! Plan to attend and bring your Democratic neighbors and friends. Volunteer! Vote! ELECT DEMOCRATS!
Agenda for all clusters is as follows:
- Message from the State Party Chair
- Discussion of Responsibilities and Expectations of Precinct
- Election of Precinct Officers ONLY if vacancies exist
- Elect Delegates to the County Convention
- Collect Sustaining Fund donations - Checks should be made payable to BCDP
- Hot 100 Membership
- Volunteer Sign-Up
- Proposing and adopting resolutions for consideration at the county convention
