On October 20, Forsyth County Democrats joined together to attend the Vote Common Good Rally in Winston-Salem. The Vote Common Good Rally brought together people of faith––regardless of age, political leanings, or faith interests––to raise their voices to stop the re-election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. The event also sought to inspire and mobilize people to make the common good the principal voting criteria this election. Many candidates delivered messages of hope and inspiration while many musicians performed for the attendees.
A special thanks to Pastor Scovens and Chad Armstrong for hosting the event at Galilee Missionary Baptist Church. Here are some photos from the event:
Voters in Forsyth County are out in waves on this first day of Early Voting. Many of the early voting locations have lines wrapped around the building; others have lines extending down the road. Near the Anderson Center, Winston-Salem State University students marched to the polls while the marching band played music. This is a wonderful day for Forsyth County and Democracy.
Although this voter turnout is a great sign for American democracy, we want to let everyone know that there are many other early voting sites that do not have wait times! You can find the early voting locations and most recent wait times by clicking here.
