We are a local grassroots organization in Strafford, NH working to elect Democrats at all levels of government. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month, 7:00 PM at the Hill Library. Our next meeting is September 4.
This fall’s midterm elections include an expansive primary race consisting of 11 Democratic contenders for the Congressional seat being vacated by Carol Shea-Porter. The primary election takes place on Tuesday, September 11, with voting at the Town Hall from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Voting in the primary provides an opportunity to select the candidate that you believe should be the Democratic nominee for our Congressional District (CD-1). Whether or not your candidate wins the primary, it's imperative that you vote in the general election on November 6. The New Hampshire Democratic Party has held 19 congressional candidate forums around Strafford County for the benefit of voters and recently opened their 8th coordinated campaign office at 16 Sixth ST in Dover. These offices are not involved in primary races but are working to boost Democratic turnout for the general election in November by coordinating outreach and campaign materials for all Democrats running in November.
