Polling shows many North Carolinians don’t know about the proposed constitutional amendments on their ballot this fall, much less their harms. Democracy North Carolina is meeting voters where they are — recruiting volunteers to help distribute amendment information to voters as they enter the polls during Early Voting. Join the “truth team” in your county and hand out educational materials about these dishonest amendments.
#1 – Scroll down this page to let us know you want to volunteer in a KEY COUNTY near you. From there, you can find shifts and polls in high-turnout counties. If your preferred county is not listed below, contact Reyna Walters-Morgan at 919-908-7918 or email@example.com.
#2 – Visit demnc.co/evlocations to find Early Voting locations and times for your PREFERRED COUNTY. Even if your preferred county isn’t listed below, you can always look up your county’s Early Voting locations and times to find a poll and shift that works for you.
#3 – Pick a multi-hour shift where you’ll see the highest traffic and have the biggest impact. Some of the busiest Early Voting days are traditionally the first and last days (This year, Oct. 17 and Nov. 3), and on weekends. The busiest weekday times are normally in the morning hours when polls open, lunchtime hours, and the late-afternoon or evening hours before a poll closes.
#4 – Download and print our “slate card” — a two-sided resource to quickly inform voters about the proposed amendments and why we’re encouraging them to vote AGAINST. Print as many as you can (they can be printed full-size, front and back, on 8.5 x 11 paper) and distribute them to voters as they enter the polls. Please print two-sided. See also our “Vote the Whole Ballot” one-pager and Amendment “Fast Facts” for even more ballot information.
#5 – Approach voters by asking a simple question: “Have you heard about the 6 constitutional amendments on your ballot today?” If “yes,” hand them a slate card and encourage them to vote AGAINST all 6. If “no,” hand them a slate card, let them know they’ll appear near the bottom of the ballot, and encourage them to read more about them before voting. Scroll down to sign up for a training webinar with more tips for talking to voters about these amendments!
#6 – Please be nice, be nonpartisan, and remain beyond the polling place’s buffer zone at all times. All 6 amendments have received bipartisan criticism for being vaguely-written. Every voter deserves to know the truth about these dishonest amendments, regardless of their (or your) political affiliation. For the biggest impact, keep your conversations just about the amendments.
