Letter: Never too early to get ready for 2020 elections

While this is an off year, Republicans should still prepare for the 2020 election. This upcoming election is going to be one of the most important in U.S. history.

We have elections coming up for local, state and federal candidates. Most important on the ballot will be President Donald J. Trump.

Rowan County has predominantly voted Republican in the past, and it’s important that we continue our success. In the 2016 election, our county had over 29,000 registered Republican voters. According to the North Carolina Board of Elections, Rowan County has over 39,000 registered Republicans residing in the county.

I implore Republican, and conservative-leaning unaffiliated or independent voters to get involved sooner rather than later. This upcoming election will decide the future of our country for many generations. Rowan County voters always do their job when voting for Republican candidates, but I feel that it’s time for all of us to unite. When Republicans and conservatives are united, we are strong enough to make anything happen.

Rowan County has a great Republican Party that offers many opportunities for Republicans to volunteer and get involved (this means registering as a Republican). I urge all of you to get involved and become a part of our great Rowan Republican family.

You can get involved by attending any of the events on our website and Facebook Page.

If you’re looking to get involved, you can register at “rowan.nc.gop,” or check the party out on Facebook at “Rowan County Republican Party.”

The Rowan County Republican Party also has a Young Republicans club, and it’s accepting members from 18-40. You can find this group on Facebook at “Rowan County Young Republicans.”

I look forward to seeing everyone work hard in this election cycle and continuing our mission to Make America Great Again.
