Support Elections in Your County

Monitor Elections-related County Meetings 

This year’s elections face unique challenges. COVID-19 has not only changed the way we vote in North Carolina, but also has delayed census data and 2021 redistricting that could also impact 2021 municipal elections. We also know that 2021 voter roll removals, expected changes to voting rules and new county board membership could all impact voters’ ability to make their voices heard.
