Having an active Democratic precinct is very important to getting out the Democratic vote. The precinct provides the most local connection between the voter and the ballot box. We know how important Durham County is to Democrats in the 2015 and 2016 elections to turn NC Blue!

Barack Obama: US gun control inaction must end
BBC Jan 5, 2016
An emotional US President Barack Obama has unveiled new restrictions on gun purchases at the White House, saying the "constant excuses for inaction" have to stop...
The executive actions include:
Leading Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted: "@POTUS is right: We can protect the second Amendment while protecting our families and communities from gun violence. And we have to."
Republican candidate Senator Ted Cruz tweeted that the executive actions are unconstitutional, with a link to sign up for his campaign correspondence on a webpage that says "Obama wants your guns" with a photo of the president in an army jacket and hat. read/watch video
The ERA is not dead
...and we need to keep talking about it, why?
In North Carolina this year, ERA NC House Bill 166 did not make crossover. However, NC Senate Bill 184 is exempt from the crossover deadline. It remains viable to be sent to the House if the Senate passes it. It had its first reading in the Senate in March, but was sent to Senate Rules and Operations where it sits unheard now. The bill could still be heard during short session in 2016. NC4ERA will be continuing efforts to educate the public as an ongoing activity. For more info on by NC4ERA and NC NOW and their activities, go to nc4era.org
