Democracy North Carolina owns and operates the state’s premier nonpartisan voter hotline: 888-OUR-VOTE (888-687-8683).  Our hotline is available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. throughout the year. Callers may ask questions about how to register to vote and cast a ballot in North Carolina or report voting problems.

  • Have a law degree, be currently enrolled in law school, or have prior experience answering a nonpartisan voter hotline; 
  • Be able to serve a minimum of FOUR shifts between September 1 and November 13 (shifts are four hours long, typically Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., with weekend hours in October and November);  
  • Have access to a computer with reliable internet access and a headset with a microphone;
