MORRISVILLE, N.C. (11/6/2020) — Voting rights group Democracy North Carolina responded to a letter from N.C. House Speaker Tim Moore today encouraging a legislative elections committee leaders to “utilize all available tools,” including constitutional and statutory subpoena power “to compel the Board to do its job as soon as possible.”
In a statement, Tomas Lopez, Democracy North Carolina Executive Director called on lawmakers to let election officials do their jobs.
“A healthy democracy is one in which every eligible voter has their voice heard and their vote counted. That means we count all eligible votes and certify elections as provided by law, not the perceived expediency of any given moment. Voters did their jobs in this election, from now until the Day of Canvass — when North Carolina always certifies its elections — we should all let election officials do theirs.”
