Welcome to the Lee County Democratic Party!
This is the online home of the Lee County Democratic Party. Our headquarters is located 131 Charlotte Ave., Sanford. We hope you'll bookmark this page and check it often! We also hope you'll volunteer to join us or donate.
Together, we can turn Lee County blue!
Dear Lee County Democrats,
Rep. Robert Reives started off the year by giving us an encouragement and a challenge: We vote, we win. Our party heard that call, and with your help, has worked hard to get our voters to the polls. With less than 2 weeks to go, we need your help to finish what we started!
Volunteers worked tirelessly last weekend to move Democratic Headquarters half a block down the street to our new location at 131 Charlotte Ave., Suite 104. While we lost the large room where we held meetings all year, we gained vital office space useful for phone banking and other field work activities.
The move did not affect political operations, and a phone bank on Wednesday was staffed by 10 volunteers. We hope you'll stop by and check out our new digs; while you're there, you can pick up signs for your favorite Democratic candidates!
Gerrick Brenner, Executive Director for Progress NC Action, announced today that he will hold a press conference in Lee County to challenge Rep. Mike Stone to return campaign funds donated by an accused money launderer. Oklahoma gaming software baron Chase E. Burns donated $4,000 to Stone's 2012 campaign, as he did to many other Republican candidates. While other candidates donated to charity in the amount given to them by Burns, Rep. Stone kept the money.

About 10 volunteers went door-to-door in Lee County today for three candidates: Clay Aiken, Chuck Baker, and Ophelia Livingston. Neighborhood canvassing is the most effective way to reach voters before an election, with phone banking a close second. Today, our volunteers were encouraged by their reception in the community, and the LCDP provided lunch afterward, giving our canvassers a chance to swap stories.
