October 2020 Newsletter

Cabarrus Republicans,

Are you beginning to feel like Christmas is tomorrow? You are not alone! With less than 40 days until the election there is a lot going on and even more that will be occurring between now and the election.

Our office hours have been wildly successful. Just a few weeks ago we had two stacks 6 feet tall with Trump signs. As of Saturday, September 19 th we had maybe 75 or 100 left. The excitement for the President, our President, is very palpable. We have raised a fair amount of desperately needed funds with the sale of the merchandise as well. These funds will be used to help ensure we get our local Republican Candidates elected.

Several of the Young Republicans along with a few members that do not qualify for the Young Republicans any longer (even though some may act like they do) held a day of action on the 19 th . We stuffed lots of door hanger bags with Candidate information and knocked several hundred doors. You will see some of these volunteers out and about over the next few weeks. If you wish to volunteer to knock doors, please contact Parish at 704-425-6648 or secretary@cabarrus.gop and he will get you setup to knock.

There will be lots of events coming up over the next few weeks. Please stay tuned. We keep our Facebook and Twitter feeds updated in real-time and do our best to send out these emails to everyone who is not using social media. We sometimes miss sending an email and apologize; however, our volunteers will do their best to keep everyone informed. This system and the social media channels do not talk to one another resulting in outbound communications being missed from time-to-time.

The following page contains lots of information for you regarding the general election as well as your Cabarrus County Republican endorsed Candidate List.

Online Donations
The Cabarrus County Republican Party is now ready to accept your donations online. The party will need to raise lots of money over the next few months to help our great candidates and to keep Cabarrus RED! Click on the big red button above or go to cabarrus.nc.gop/donate to get started.


Absentee and voter Registration Information
Many people may have never voted absentee and are looking for instruction on exactly how it works. If you are sitting on the fence of absentee vs in-person voting, go-ahead and request an absentee form. You can always vote in-person and simply destroy your absentee ballot. PLEASE DO NOT VOTE BOTH AS THAT IS THE VERY VOTER FRAUD WE ARE FIGHTING AS A PARTY!

The link below will take you to the form that must be completed and returned to the Board of Elections. Many of your questions will be answered directly on the form and it is self-explanatory.

2020 STATE ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST FORM

The request form may be emailed, faxed, delivered in person, or mailed by the U.S. Postal Service or other designated delivery service (DHL, FedEx, or UPS) to the voter's county board of elections. The request can be sent now through 5pm on October 27th.
