Stand Up. Show Up. Vote Blue.


Welcome to The Dare Democratic Party Website

Outer Bankers face a political storm that challenges us to keep our heads above water. That’s why we invite you to join with the Dare County Democratic Party to Stand Up, Show Up, and Vote Blue. We want to keep the laws, programs, and democratic institutions that sustain and empower everyone. And we want to fix the ones that don’t.

Dare Democrats offer a big tent with plenty of room for diverse opinions, a range of incomes, myriads of cultures, and various lifestyles. But the one thing we all share is a love for the Outer Banks—the place where we all belong.

Statement on Passing of Ken Wenberg

The Dare County Democratic Party mourns the loss of former party Chair Kenyon Walter “Ken” Wenberg of Waves who passed away July 29 at age 83.

Ken is remembered as a true gentleman who took the reins of the party in 2002 at a time of great transition in party leadership. Ken worked to build a strong party foundation that led to future successes in the 2006 and 2008 elections. He continued to serve as a trusted resource for future leaders. A successful businessperson, Ken served the community in a number of other leadership positions as well.

We send our condolences to Jackie, Ken’s wife of nearly 58 years, the entire Wenberg family, and his many friends.

You may find his full obituary here.
