Buncombe County Democratic Party 2017-12-19T18:41:40+00:00

Welcome to the Buncombe County Democratic Party!

Democrats believe that we are greater together than we are on our own – that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, when everyone plays by the same rules. We invite you to join with us in supporting candidates who believe in the principle of “People First” to find solutions to problems that affect all the people of North Carolina.

January 20th was full of excitement all across Buncombe county!

Hundreds marched in the Black Mountain Women’s March, which began at 9:30a.m. in downtown Black Mountain. Asheville’s 2018 Women’s March kicked off from Memorial Stadium, marching up Biltmore to Pack Square Park, with thousands participating. Asheville Mayor Esther Manheimer and Senator Terry Van Duyn, both Democrats, were featured speakers at the rally proceeding the march.

In the evening, almost 300 Buncombe Dems gathered at the Mission Health Conference Center of AB-Tech for our 2018 Kickoff Party and Fundraiser. Thank you to everyone who joined us! 

The event was a huge success thanks to the hard work of our planning committee – Nan Cole, Ellen Costanzo, Denise Marecki, Lindsey Prather, and Marnie Walsh. Dozens of volunteers helped check in other attendees, handle auction items, and check out folks as they left. We were also joined by over a dozen Democratic candidates for office in Western NC this year.

Check out photos below for some pictures from the across the county on Saturday.

Statement on August 22nd Board of Elections Meeting

August 23rd, 2017|0 Comments

Last night, board members of the Buncombe County Board of Elections upended decades of precedence by approving chief judges nominated by both the Democratic and Republican parties. This is a troublesome, but not surprising, result of the North Carolina Republican Party's attempts to maintain control over the politics of our state through any means necessary since the election of Governor Roy Cooper.
