Find an UNA !

Please invite an UNA to lunch (or some other event) with you. UNA is shorthand for a voter registered as UNAffiliated. Neither Democrats nor Republicans can prevail at the voting booth without votes from UNAs. So let's help the UNAs understand why voting Democratic would support their values.

2018 Investing in Members

One of our first political investments should be toward the continued solvency of the Wake County Senior Democrats.

We ask for a minimum investment of $20.00 from each member. Paying by check makes accounting easier and more transparent. It is not tax deductible. And, of course, for those who can, larger contributions are gratefully received.

Members should know that we ask for money in order to help the Wake County Democratic Party and the NC Senior Democrats by our contributions. Examples include: Wake County Voter slate cards, get out the vote (GOTV) mailings in Wake County, and local focused meetings.
– John Yelvington, Treasurer
