Polk County

We are the Polk County Democratic Party, the chartered affiliate of the North Carolina Democratic Party. We represent the political interests of Polk County Democrats, not only through direct political action, but also through community service.

The party headquarters is located at 64 Ward Street in Columbus, behind the courthouse and between the Sheriff’s Department and the Post Office.

There are no upcoming events at this time.

Buckle up, stick together, and keep going.

Every day the news is getting crazier and we can’t help but hope that today’s news will be the tipping point.  Political commentators are saying the next few months are probably going to get even worse as the Trump administration lashes out as it falls apart. Many of us are worn out after the election, but it is critical right now that we stay informed and engaged and that we stick together.
Our national nightmare is not over yet!

Please call our Members of Congress
to let them know how strongly you oppose the longest government shutdown in our nation’s history. Hurting fellow Americans to get funding for a wall that
will not make us safer is wrong!  

Sen. Thom Tillis:       (202) 224-6342        (704 )509-9087 
Sen. Richard Burr:    (202) 224-3154        (336) 631-5125 
 Rep. McHenry:           (202) 225-2576        (828) 669-0600

Early Voting Report
 

After eleven days of Early Voting, 3,900 people have voted.  In addition, 182 Absentee Ballots have not yet returned.
       
28% of Democrats, 23% of Republicans, and 23% of Unaffiliated voters have voted.  This shows that Democrats are enthusiastic, but we have to do even better since there are fewer of us here is Polk County.  Currently, there have been 100 more Republican voters come out than Democrats and 50 more Unaffiliated voters than Republican voters.  425 more women have voted than men.  

We have had great volunteers and candidates outside the Womack Building greeting voters with pocket ballots.  Reports of the encounters with voters have been pretty positive overall.

Please talk to every Democrat you know about how critical this election is to our country and how important every vote is. Ask them what their plans are for voting.  We have 5 more days of Early Voting and then Election Day.

Early Voting Numbers!
 

After four days of Early Voting, here are the turnout results:
Dems          Reps          Unas               Total
 523              514             571                 1623

 
There are also 183 Absentee Ballots that have not been returned yet.

These numbers are very encouraging and, as you can see, we are holding our own. But we need everyone’s help….  Please ask ever Democratic and Dem leaning Unaffiliated voter you know if they have voted and if not, what their plans for voting are!  Personal contacts work!

 Very Important Voting Information
1.  When voting, remember to check the paper roller printout as you touch the screen to select your candidates.  Sometimes the machine gets out of calibration and prints the wrong candidate on the paper roll. This has happened in our county and if this happens to you, immediately notify the elections staff so they can re-calibrate that machine.

2. If you know people who may have registered since the last election, encourage them to go to Early Voting. DMV and Social Services computer errors have been reported that keep voter registration information from being sent to the Board of Elections. During Early Voting, if their name does not appear on the voting rolls, they can register and vote right then.  They can only vote on a previsional ballot on election day.

3.  For information, help, or if anyone has trouble voting or at the polling sites, they should call:

Pat Salomon (864) 384-5076
Margaret Parker (864) 266-8273
To avoid problems,
vote in Early Voting.
