Our Carolina Promise

Welcome to Carteret County Democratic Party site. We are your neighbors and have the same concerns as you do: a quality education for our young people, affordable healthcare for everyone, jobs with a living wage, and keeping our coast healthy, beautiful, and free from drilling. We work to ensure that all our voices are heard locally as well as at the state and national level. As Democrats, we are traditionally the ‘big tent’ party that welcomes everyone regardless of who you are. All North Carolinians should have a fair shot at a good life, regardless of their background, where they came from, how much money they have, or who they love. This is something we believe in and need to continually reaffirm in practice. You can download our Strategic Plan here.

DO SOME GOOD …

Buy your One-in-Two-Hundred chance to win $5000!

The Dems are serious about fundraising to support our local, state, and federal candidates. Our goal in 2020 is to get every Carteret Democrat to the polls. We have successfully established a beautiful headquarters and it is growing our presence in Carteret! Help your party keep moving forward. $100 buys you and a guest entrance to an awesome party at the Backstreet Pub and enters you in a reverse drawing to win $5000.  The odds are fabulous.
