Reason 78 to Flip NC

TO PASS RED-FLAG GUN LEGISLATION

The NC GOP has refused to consider red-flag gun legislation, which enables family members or law enforcement to ask a judge to take guns from a person who is a danger to themselves or others. Similar laws have passed with bipartisan support in many other states.

The Board of Elections will begin mailing out Absentee Ballots

September 4!

Absentee Ballot Request forms from the
Center for Voter Information

And the absentee ballot request forms that many of us are receiving from the Center for Voter Information which contain the form, and a postage paid envelope addressed to the Alamance Board of Election are valid so please go ahead and use them!

Here’s an article explaining the nuts and bolts of absentee voting. https://www.ncvoter.org/absentee-ballots/

Here is a link to  an absentee ballot request 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 County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!

Check this link to the Alamance County Election Official Application. We especially need elections workers during the 17-day early voting period. We have a new early voting location at the Elmira Community Center in Burlington and we have newly expanded weekend voting, including Sunday voting. This means we need more elections workers than in the past. And the COVID virus has meant that many of our predominantly older elections workers who are more vulnerable have chosen not to return to work this year’s election.

You can also fill out the NC State Board of Elections Democracy Heroes form to be contacted by BOE staff: https://www.ncsbe.gov/get-involved
