It is not too soon to start thinking about the 2022 mid-term elections.  How would like to participate - as a candidate, as a precinct leader, as a volunteer?  Whatever role you play - it will be critical to continuing making Democratic inroads in Beaufort County.

The BCDP has convened a Candidate Recruitment Committee with representatives from every region from the County to identify candidates who want to run for office in 2022.  In addition, the BCDP Training Committee is holding 90-minute sessions on What You Need to Know About Running for Office in Beaufort County.

There are many elected positions open in 2022.  We encourage everyone to consider whether this is a path they would like to pursue.   Link here for a list of elected positions that currently have Republican incumbents that will be up for election in November 2022.
