One Election Day Down, One To Go
November 5 is Election Day in Watauga and Mecklenberg counties, and the NC Vote Defenders will once again be at the polls to stand against voter suppression. Just as we did in Raleigh and Elizabeth City on October 8, we will be at various precincts in Boone and Charlotte educating voters on new voting laws, and documenting voter repression and advocating for everyone’s right to the ballot box.
We Need Your Help
We need volunteers to be Vote Defenders and monitor these polls. If you stand for student voting rights, for equality in our state, and for the belief that voting laws shouldn’t throw up bureaucratic barriers to the ballot box, but should instead encourage voter participation, then please volunteer here!
Watauga County Vote Defender training will be held on the evening of Monday, October 14, on the campus of Appalachian State University. Charlotte Vote Defender Training will be on Saturday, November 2 from 3-5. Stand with the students, and stand for voting laws that encourage people to vote, instead of seeking to silence them.
