Here is a link to request an absentee ballot form in North Carolina.  It is not too early to do this. You can also call our local Board of Elections at (336)570-6755 and request that they send you an absentee ballot request form.  Or, if you’d like to check your registration status or register to vote the Times News has this nifty little page. HERE

Alamance Board of Elections unanimously approved adding an early polling site in North Burlington and a Sunday Early Voting date!

As Board of Elections acting chair Dr Dorothy Yarborough said “Community  support really makes a difference.”

Statement from Alamance NAACP

Thank you to all 700+ people who signed our petition to the Board of Elections. Today the board approved Sunday voting and an additional early voting location at Elmira Community Center. This will expand access to voting to minorities and working class Americans. Over the last week each of you participated in your own government. Congratulations, this is what democracy looks like. Now let’s prepare to vote like our lives depend on it. Because it does.

ACDP Statement

ACDP applauds the Alamance County Board of Elections for its unanimous decision to add a Sunday to early voting and a early voting poll site in North Burlington. The current national health crisis makes the expansion of early voting a necessity for the upcoming election. The BOE’s decision will result in increased access to early voting in the 2020 election.

About Lora

I am Lora C. Cubbage, and I bring Integrity, Fairness, Competence, and Respect to the bench, and your vote will ensure that those same qualities remain on the Court of Appeals. I stand on my Oath in that I will protect and defend both the NC and US Constitution. We must continue to diversify our State and work together across isles to make an NC that all of her citizens can be proud to call home. I will continue to fight for the rights of every citizen in our State and fight to continue to move NC forward. I am the right choice at the right time!

For 17 years, Judge Cubbage spent many hours behind a barber chair getting to know about the cares and concerns of the citizens of Greensboro, NC. It was there that she realized that she had a higher calling to serve in a space that would allow her  to affect societal change, impact top policymakers and leaders and to affect change around the globe. 

At age 29, Judge Cubbage, being a single mother and longing to do more, not just for herself, but to show her  daughter that she could truly be anything she wanted to be if she set her mind to it and aspired to reach her goals, decided it was time to walk out her destiny. It was at that pivotal point in her life that she applied and was accepted into  North Carolina A&T State University.  Her time at North Carolina A & T was nothing short of amazing.  After graduating from NC A & T, she went on to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law to fulfill her  calling to practice law and serve the citizens of her country.

The Marketing Committee has selected a design that we feel captures who we are and what we value. We’ve got a billboard located on Interstate 40/85 between Exits 145 and 147 picked out that we think will allow us to reach as many potential 2020 voters as possible. now all we need to do is raise some money! Our goal is to fund the entire cost of the $3400 billboard through your generous donations. Please consider donating to this fund, as we believe we have a solid plan to make your dollars reach the most voters and potential voters possible. We’ve been too quiet it’s time to make some noise!

Give Your Time at Election Time.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions. More Information HERE
