The mission of the Wake County Democratic Party is to elect Democrats to office in Wake County. We actively recruit and help elect candidates who believe, as we do, in our platform: Government should serve the people. It should be open and fair, improving our lives and creating opportunity for all. The basic unit of organization for our Party is the precinct. We encourage all Democrats in Wake County to be active in their precinct.

POWER OF THE PEN
Are you interested in writing letters to voters? You can with Power of the pen!
Power of the Pen is a project of Democratic Women of North Carolina. It started as Women Vote in Durham County in 2008 and has been expanded to all counties.
This is a GOTV effort with the goal of encouraging registered Democrats who vote in presidential elections to vote in the midterms too.
When Power of the Pen started in 2008, 824 volunteers organized to write 21,000 letters to targeted registered Democratic women and unaffiliated women likely to vote Democratic, but were new or infrequent voters. The letters were handwritten. Each volunteer writes to a list pulled from data which prioritizes voters, and in 2008, 62% of the letter receivers voted! Each election, this program has increased turnout.
Any registered Democrat can write letters! You can sign up by going here:
Once registered, you’ll be given names and addresses of 20 voters in your county to write to. These are supposed to be handwritten, with personal stories from experience encouraging the receiver of the letter to vote.
There are sample letters and more information about writing the letters on the Power of the Pen website.
