Wow. What an election. On Tuesday, 41% of Culpeper County voted for Abigail Spanberger. Turnout was near presidential levels. In 2016, Eileen Bedell received 34% of Culpeper’s vote. Ralph Northam got 37% in 2017. Each year builds on the next. Last year laid the ground work for this year. This year prepares us for next year. Next year gets us ready for 2020. I am so proud of the Culpeper Democrats and your incredibly hard work that made this victory possible. Each of you who wrote postcards, made phone calls, knocked on doors, stood in front of the polling place in the rain passing out sample ballots, donated, and voted — you are all heroes. Thank you.
What an amazing year and an amazing candidate. Take a look at some of our memories of Abigail Spanberger’s many, many visits to Culpeper. Election Day is tomorrow! We’re behind you all the way, Abigail!
At last month’s Culpeper Farm Tour, Abigail Spanberger spoke to our small farmers, some of them worried about their future under President Trump’s tariffs, which wildly interfere with agricultural markets. As she rightly observed during the recent Congressional debate: “Farmers don’t want bailouts, they want to sell their crops.” Abigail will have our farmers’ backs. 10 days!
Wow! The Culpeper Democrats are so proud of our nominee, Abigail Spanberger, after tonight’s Culpeper debate with Dave Brat. Standing up to pharmaceutical lobbies and special interests. Service to our country. High speed broadband is an economic imperative. Kids shouldn’t have to do their homework at McDonald’s. Strong CTE programs and apprenticeships. Farmers don’t want bailouts, they want to sell their crops. With determination and focus, anything is achievable. Our next Congresswoman!

There’s three big ways we can reach voters: at their door, on the phone, and through the mail. Nervous about knocking on doors? Hate talking on the phone? Still want to help Abigail Spanberger and Tim Kaine get elected? Help us reach voters by writing a postcard!
Not everyone can vote on November 6th. Voting early is easy. All you do is bring your photo ID to the Culpeper Election office, 151 N Main, 3rd floor, no weekdays between 8:30 and 4:30, or on Saturday October 27th or November 3rd, fill out a one-page form, and vote then. But not everyone understands how it works. That’s why with less than a month until the election, the Culpeper Democrats are writing election reminder postcards educating Culpeper voters about earning voting.
Want to help? Our office is also open throughout the coming weeks (see our office hours here) if you want to stop by and pick up a stack of cards or drop them off.
Postcard Writing parties!
We’ll be hosting postcard parties over the next few weeks. Check this space for information! our first party is this Friday at 5pm. We’ll have pizza and stickers.

Urgent! Stamps needed!
The CCDC has a hard limit of $1000 that we’re allowed to spend on this election. That means we can’t purchase stamps for every postcard we want to send. So when you return the postcards, please stamp a few of them as well!
What a great turnout for our first postcard party!
