Caregivers Initiative:

Caregivers who share their story  can get a $50.00 gift card. Please share this with caregivers you know.
 
Visit aarp.org/iheartcaregivers to view the updated story collection form, and the gift card options.
 
Concept:  Every day, family caregivers deliver. They deliver medicine. They deliver meals. They deliver love.  Now, it’s our turn to deliver to them.  When family caregivers share their stories with AARP, we’ll deliver a gift card for groceries, gas or the drug store.  It’s our way to make their lives a little easier.  We’ll also continue to fight for more support for family caregivers: help at home, training, financial help, relief, and more.  That’s how AARP continues to deliver for family caregivers.
 
Incentive: Each family caregiver who shares his or her story with AARP via I Heart Caregivers will receive a $50 gift card for groceries, gas, or the drug store.  Visit aarp.org/iheartcaregivers to view the updated story collection form, and the gift card options.

OUR MADISON COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PARTY WORKED VERY HARD IN THE LAST ELECTION — We are continuing to do so in this Election cycle

Madison County Democrats TAKE our Political Responsibilities VERY Seriously!

The Democratic Voter Turnout for the November 8, 2017 Election was 70.1 % of the Registered Democratic Voters in Madison County. The number of Madison County NC Registered Democrats who voted in the November 8, 2016 were 4,553 out of 6,470.

This is the Voting Data by Precinct in Madison County, NC for the November 8, 2016 General Election.
