Sincerely,

Northern Orange Democrats Breakfast Group - July 9, 2016

Body: 
This Saturday, please join the Northern Orange Democrats Breakfast Group as we get to know Emma Shaw, and learn about plans in Orange County to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot in November. Emma, who had the opportunity to be in Charlotte on Tuesday for the Hillary Clinton rally with President Barack Obama, is heading up the Coordinated Campaign in our area. Come hear her enthusiasm:
 
Saturday, July 9, 2016
9:00am - 10: 15am
The Village Diner
600 West King Street, Hillsborough 
 
Emma is no stranger to Orange County; she graduated from East Chapel Hill High, went to UNC-Chapel Hill for undergrad. Her next venture was to Scotland, where she did her graduate work at St. Andrews. Seeing from abroad what was happening to her beloved state, she returned home to do her part. 
 
In order for Democrats to take back the General Assembly, keep the Council of State, return to the governor's mansion, and maintain the White House, we must strategize and mobilize. We hope to see you Saturday, as we continue to work towards victory.

Join Hillary and President Obama in Charlotte

Body: 
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton's campaign announced something awesome -- she and President Obama and coming in North Carolina for their first joint campaign appearance!
This will be Hillary's second appearance in North Carolina in two weeks, underscoring the importance of our state in this year's election.
Here are the details for Tuesday's event:
Date: Tuesday, July 5, 2016

Summer Soiree POSTPONED

Body: 
The Orange County Democratic Party is postponing the Summer Soiree to a later date.  We are in the midst of rescheduling it and will let you know shortly.
 
If you have contributed towards the Summer Soiree, it will be applied to the reception at the future date.  
 
If you have any questions, feel free to email Matt Hughes at matt.hughes@orangedems.com or Tiffany Reynolds-Richardson at tiffany@rrcampaigns.com
 
We apologize for any inconvenience, but look forward to seeing you soon.

Early Voting for June 7 Primary

Body: 

Early Voting officially begins Thursday, May 26th and continues through June 4th for the June 7th election.  You can vote early at the Orange County Board of Elections or at the Seymour Senior Center.

 

We will be voting for NC Supreme Court. Democrats will only have the option of a non-partisan primary ballot as there will be no Democratic primary for US Congress in the 4th District (which will now include all of Orange County due to redistricting). Independent voters have the option of voting in the Republican primary for Congres or the non-partisan ballot. Earlier this month, the Orange County Democratic Party proudly endorsed Judge Mike Morgan for this position.  

We have an opportunity this election to tilt the balance of our state supreme court by electing Judge Mike Morgan to the bench.  He has proven himself to be a respectable and well equipped judge. We at the OCDP encourage you to vote for Mike Morgan for the NC Supreme Court. 

Click here for more information on this election: http://www.ncsbe.gov/Portals/0/FilesP/2016_Supreme_Court_Primary_Election_Guide.pdf

Please remember to vote in this very important election.
