103 Days Until Election Day
Council of State
Secretary of State
In her role, Secretary Elaine Marshall works to support economic growth, promote the public trust, and protect citizens and businesses from misrepresentation. She has with decades of experience as a public official, having served as a member of the NC State Senate before becoming the first woman ever elected to a NC statewide, executive branch office in 1996.
In her own words: “As Secretary of State, I worked to reform our lobbying laws to ensure transparency and reduce undue influence of special interests in the legislature. As part of my job, I oversee securities and investment and I’ve held powerful financial interests accountable when they have misled investors, both large and small. And I’ve cracked down on scam artists who use “Ponzi schemes” to prey on our most vulnerable citizens and have sent the con men to jail for long sentences.
Today, there is a concerted effort to roll back the lobbying laws at the state level. At the federal level, there is push to strip my powers of enforcement and allow for more “self-regulation” of the financial industry. We all know what that gets us.
I’m running again because I’m ready to fight these attempts to shift power back into the hands of the few. I ask for your help and support. It’s going to take all of us working together to get this country back on the right track.”

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
