March 2020 Newsletter
Fellow Republicans, the Primary Election is on March 3rd. Do your research on the candidates and head to the polls. Absentee ballots are going out now, one-stop early voting is ongoing till Saturday February 29th at 3:00 pm, and primary election day is March 3rd. Polls on election day will be open from 6:30 am till 7:30 pm.
By NCGOP policies, the party cannot endorse a candidate in the primary election. But, if you wish to help a particular candidate, reach out to them and tell them you will volunteer. They will welcome any and all help.
Our printable voter guide will help you identify the Republican candidates.

After the Primary, we ask for everyone’s help in getting all the signs picked up. Brian King has graciously offered a space behind his office for us to drop off the signs. Pick up all Republican signs when you see them and bring them to the drop point.
51 Means Avenue, Concord

Please stack them up by candidate as best as possible. Additionally, we would like to suggest that when you and candidate volunteers head out to pick up signs, we ask that you take a garbage bag with you and pick up any garbage around the signs as well. Let’s all help clean up Cabarrus County and make it a more beautiful place!
