Keep Duke Blue.
Duke Democrats is the affiliate of the Democratic Party at Duke University. We are a political and social group dedicated to electing Democrats and fighting for social justice and progressive policies.
To all the Real Blue Devils,
It’s a new year – full of new Exec, new classes, and hopefully a (knock on every piece of wood in Cameron) new president! We’ll be sending out information about our own programming and kickoff events later this month, but, for now, we want to bump opportunities to get politically involved in the Duke and Durham community. I’m sure you hear/think/agonize over this every day, but this election cycle is incredibly consequential. That’s why we want to serve as a resource hub for YOUR activism! We’ve been assembling a running list of both events and ways to volunteer; feel free to add if you’ve heard about or are planning anything. It doesn’t have to be explicitly electoral. You can find a link to some of the opportunities here.
We’re really excited to see all of you veteran Duke Dems and meet new members, near and far! We’re an inclusive, open organization – no application or commitment necessary. The more Blue Devils we have, the better! Along with pushing out actionable work, we feel strongly about building a strong Duke Dems community this year. We’ll send out info soon about what Duke Democrats specifically will be doing! If you have any questions, or just want to say hi, feel free to email any of us at our Duke emails, or fill out this contact form. Dream big, fight hard!

- Roy Cooper won the Governorship of North Carolina by approximately 10,000 votes in 2016. His predecessor, Republican Pat McCrory, blames Duke students specifically for his loss. Now, more than ever, it is critical that we empower college students to exercise their rights and vote.
