A Community for Everyone

Buncombe Democrats fight for our community every day. As engaged citizens and volunteers, we work to bring better jobs to our county, strengthen our schools, keep everyone healthy, and preserve our environment.

We are your neighbors—from Barnardsville to Arden, Candler to Black Mountain, Big Ivy to Bent Creek. Together, we help our community’s voice be heard. We volunteer to knock on doors, call our neighbors, write letters, register voters, and welcome new people at community events.

We are united by shared values of fairness, integrity, and opportunity for all. The diversity of our backgrounds, viewpoints, and skills makes us strong.

And we believe that our democracy needs citizens who take action, now more than ever.

Join Us.

Thanks to all who came together to celebrate a successful 2018 and support our efforts in the coming year.

We will be posting photos and a story soon, so check back to read about Democrats who:

  • Enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner and dessert as well as beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Tried their luck at the wine pull and the gift card tree.
  • Celebrated the results of their hard work and spent a delightful evening with friends, family, team members and office-holders.

The Buncombe County Democratic Party is an all-volunteer organization, funded entirely by our members, who support grassroots democracy and the organizing we do year-round here at home. Your ticket or sponsorship will help cover costs of the event, with all other funds going towards the work ahead of us in 2019 as we prepare for 2020.
