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 it also delayed 2020 Census data which impacted our 2021-2022 municipal elections. In 2021, we witnessed hundreds of voter roll removals, legislative attempts to change election administration rules, and new county board membership, all which impact voters’ ability to make their voices heard.

In 2022, we must come together to monitor our local elections to not only protect democracy, but to defend voter freedoms for every North Carolinian, no matter the political stripe.
