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.

Each year, every Democratic Party in every county all across North Carolina gathers together for an annual convention. At our precinct meetings in February, attendees elected delegates to represent each precinct at this annual gathering.

Conventions are grassroots democracy in action and represent a powerful force in the Democratic party. At this year’s convention, we’ll elect County Party officers, our representatives to the District and State, and approve resolutions written at precinct meetings this past year.  Conventions are fun, energetic environments where you can meet folks from all across the county who share your passions and Democratic values.

Our convention is open to the public but only delegates elected at precinct meetings in February will be eligible to cast votes.

When is the Convention?

This year’s convention will be held on March 24th, 2018 at 2:00pm the auditorium of Enka High School, 475 Enka Lake Rd, Candler, NC 28715. Normally, conventions are held in the morning, but in order to support the March for Our Lives in Asheville, we’ve moved our convention to the afternoon. Registration will open at 12:30 p.m.

Check out the convention event on Facebook or visit the 2018 convention page here.
