In SCOTUS controversy, the hypocrisy is all red

Posts by Rob Schofield, The Progressive Pulse

As part of an P.R. effort to quell public outrage at their 180 degree flip-flop over the appropriateness of confirming a new Supreme Court Justice during a presidential election, Republicans, their allies and some ill-informed media types have attempted to argue as a defense in recent days that both parties are acting hypocritically.

You’ve probably read or heard this argument somewhere (I know I have in some of the hate mail that comes my way). It goes something like this: “Those blankety-blank Democrats would have done the same thing if the roles were reversed. Look at what they’re doing now. By arguing that no replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg should be considered until 2021, they’ve demonstrated their hypocrisy.”

It’s hard to know whether to laugh or cry at this “logic.” It’s akin to arguing that victim of a physical assault is just as guilty as his attacker, because he bore ill will toward the person who attacked him and might have been the perpetrator if the circumstances were different.

Earth to the GOP and its apologists: Your argument might hold some validity if it was the Democrats who had held up a previous confirmation process on the grounds that it conflicted with an election. Maybe. The fact, however, is that they did no such thing.

What happened in 2016 was that U.S. Senate Republicans announced a new standard and established a new precedent by refusing to consider President Obama’s moderate and highly qualified nominee, appeals court judge Merrick Garland, during an election year.

North Carolina’s Thom Tillis helped spell out this change when he stated that it would be wrong to have a “partisan, divisive confirmation battle during the very same time the American people are casting their ballots to elect our next president.”

There are many intelligent observers across the nation who believe that shift was an unwise and destructive change, but the simple fact is that it happened.

Having established this new standard and precedent, the Republicans shouldn’t be free now to simply abandon it and return to the old way of doing things out of political opportunism and convenience. And Democrats — the victims in 2016 of this shift — certainly can’t and shouldn’t be blamed now for demanding that Republicans lie in the new bed they have made.

The simple fact is that for democratic government to work properly, precedent and rules must mean something. Republicans, however, have demonstrated that the only rules and precedents they respect are the ones born of raw power.

On shudders to think what new assaults on our Constitution that a justice confirmed under such dishonest circumstances will endorse.

99 Reasons to Flip NC

38. TO STOP THE GOP’S ENDLESS UNCONSTITUTIONAL LEGISLATION

Since gaining supermajorities in both chambers of the NCGA in 2012, Republican lawmakers have passed a continuous stream of unconstitutional legislation, including their monster voter law (#97), racially (#80) and partisan (#34) gerrymandered congressional and legislative districts, attempts to seize power from the executive branch (#24), and so on. The GOP-controlled legislature’s power grabs have been so extreme that it was even sued by a governor from their own party in McCrory v. Berger. Exasperatingly, the GOP often benefits from its unconstitutional legislation during the course of the lengthy legal battles required to contest their illegal laws – while taxpayers pay the literal price, footing the bill for tens of millions in legal fees.

Political Divides, Conspiracy Theories and Divergent News Sources Heading Into 2020 Election

Pew Charitable Trust, Full Article

43% of Republicans identify fraud as a major problem with voting by mail versus 11% of Democrats

As the nation heads toward Election Day in the midst of a persistent pandemic and simmering social unrest, a new Pew Research Center survey finds that Americans’ deep partisan divide, dueling information ecosystems, and divergent responses to conspiracy theories and misinformation are all fueling uncertainty and conflict surrounding the presidential election.

While Americans across the political spectrum have been getting information about key election-related storylines, their knowledge and opinions about these issues – as well as the candidates themselves – differ strikingly based on their party affiliation and key news sources, according to the new survey, conducted Aug. 31-Sept. 7, 2020, as part of the Center’s American News Pathways project.

One central issue creating confusion in this campaign is the reliability of voting by mail, which figures to be more widespread than ever this year as people try to avoid crowded polling places during the coronavirus outbreak. President Donald Trump has repeatedly promoted the unsupported idea that mail-in voting will lead to significant fraud and has put the U.S. Postal Service in the campaign spotlight.

While evidence indicates that mail-in voting is associated with only minuscule levels of fraud, 43% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents identify voter fraud as a “major problem” associated with mail-in ballots. By contrast, only 11% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents say the same thing.

39. TO STOP THE PRIVATIZATION OF OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM

Over the past seven years, Republicans in the NCGA have taken many steps toward privatizing our school system, including expanding a private school voucher program (in which more than 90% of the schools receiving money were religious schools), funding the rapid growth of charter schools (up 75% since 2010), and requiring mandatory public school takeovers by corporate charters (#61). All of these programs divert resources from traditional public schools, leaving funding for public schools in NC near the worst in the country (#27).

Who are North Carolina’s Unaffiliated Voters: 2020 Update

As of July 25th, 2020, North Carolina had 7 million registered voters. Of these, 2.3 million or 33% were registered unaffiliated. This post examines the characteristics of NC’s unaffiliated voters.

Age

Younger voters are the most likely to register as unaffiliated. Forty-three percent of voters ages 18-34 are registered unaffiliated compared to 35% of voters ages 35-54, 26% of voters ages 55-74, and 21% of voters 75 and older. As a result, younger adults, especially those ages 18-34, comprise a larger share of unaffiliated voters than the overall electorate: 29% of all voters are ages 18-34 compared to 37% of registered unaffiliated voters.

View Long Image Description

Reflecting this age structure, 6% of North Carolina unaffiliated voters first registered to vote in the state before 1990; 9% registered in the 1990s; 20% in the 2000s; and 65% in 2010 or later. Specifically, 35% registered between 2010 and 2016 and 30% have registered in 2017 or later.

Race/ethnicity

Compared to the state population overall, unaffiliated voters are more likely to be white (69% vs. 65%) and to report no race or ethnicity (10% vs. 6%). Asian and Hispanic voters have an above average share of unaffiliated voters and black voters are a smaller share than their share in North Carolina’s electorate overall.

View Long Image Description

Voters that did not report a race or ethnic identification were the most likely to register as unaffiliated (54%), followed by Asian (52%), multiracial or other race (44%), Hispanic (43%), white (35%), and American Indian (32%) voters. Black voters were the least likely to register as unaffiliated (18%).

Place of birth

North Carolina voters born in a New England state are generally the most likely to be registered as unaffiliated. Forty-nine percent of voters born in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts are registered unaffiliated, followed by Vermont (47%).

Just over 810,000 unaffiliated voters—35% of the state’s unaffiliated voter population—were born in North Carolina. New York (140K), Virginia (84K), New Jersey (57K), and Florida (56K) were the next most common birth places. Seventeen percent of unaffiliated voters (396K) provided no information on place of birth.

Geography

Across North Carolina’s 100 counties, the county share of unaffiliated voters ranges from about one in six voters to more than two in every five voters. Unlike patterns of Democrat and Republican registrations, there are less clear regional patterns in unaffiliated registrations. The top 10 counties for unaffiliated voters include:

  • Transylvania (43%), Watauga (43%), Henderson (42%), and Buncombe (39%) in the west;
  • Camden (43%), Currituck (42%), Dare (40%), and Onslow (39%) on the coast; and
  • Orange (39%) and Wake (38%) in the Triangle.

The top counties for unaffiliated voters include college towns (Watauga, Orange) and military communities (Onslow), as well as one of the most populous counties (Wake) and one of the least populous counties (Camden) in the state.

Counties with the lowest rates of unaffiliated voter registrations were in the northeast. Edgecombe County (16%) had the fewest voters registered unaffiliated, followed by Warren (20%), and Hertford (21%).

Note: analysis presented is of the 7/25/2020 voter registration file from NC’s State Board of Elections. Analysis is limited to individuals who are active, inactive, or temporary registered voters. Voters with reported birth age of 116 years or older were excluded from the age analysis. Voters with registration dates prior to 1930 were excluded from the registration date analysis.

40. BECAUSE THE WEALTHIEST NORTH CAROLINIANS DIDN’T NEED A 30% INCOME TAX CUT

Over the past five years, Republicans have cut the top income tax rate from 7.75% to 5.5%, a 29% cut for the wealthiest North Carolinians, while eliminating the earned-income tax credit (#89) and enacting regressive sales taxes.

North Carolina Unemployment Figures

  • North Carolinians need support during this public health and economic crisis. That’s exactly what Democrats are fighting for. The Trump administration and state Republicans should offer these people a hand, not make life harder for them during a crisis.
  • Rather than offer those out of work real, meaningful help, Republicans led by then-Speaker of the House Thom Tillis slashed the benefits that help people get back on their feet.
  • To make matters worse, President Trump is refusing to reopen the health care insurance exchanges to help those who might have lost their health insurance or did not have any before this crisis began.
  • American workers need relief — and they need it now. Democrats took action to pass a relief bill that puts workers, not corporations, first. Now, the Trump administration must ensure these benefits get into the hands of workers as soon as possible.
  • Republicans, including Thom Tillis, have made life harder for the unemployed. In 2013, Tillis passed the steepest cuts to a state unemployment program in American history.

41. TO STOP UNREGULATED FRACKING IN NORTH CAROLINA

In 2014, Republican Gov. McCrory and the GOP legislature pushed through new rules to allow fracking in NC. The rules were not only overly weak in protecting public health but also completely failed to address air quality concerns, chemical disclosures, or compulsory pooling, an extremely controversial practice in which landowners who do not wish to lease their mineral rights are forced to accept drilling anyway. The GOP legislature also overrode all local moratoriums on drilling – like those in Lee and Chatham counties – denying a voice to the people most affected by the associated air and water pollution. Fracking has not yet started in NC due to legal issues with the GOP’s maneuvers. NC should be focused on the plentiful sources of renewable energy available in our state and end our obsession with fossil fuels.

Democrats Speak to Pocketbook Issues – Not Divisive Social Issues 

North Carolina voters will reject the hatred and division coming from Republicans and their toxic agenda that puts wealthy special interests before working North Carolina families.

  • HEALTH CARE: National Republicans are trying to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions and refuse to tackle the rising cost of health care. State Republicans refuse to expand Medicaid, which would help 500,000 people access health care and create thousands of jobs.
      
  • THE ECONOMY: The economy is only working for some – wealthy special interests and those at the top. State Republicans continue to put corporate tax cuts before our public schools.
      
  • PUBLIC EDUCATION: Republicans continue to prioritize corporate tax cuts over investments in our public schools. Tens of thousands of teachers rallied in Raleigh the past two years because Republicans are underfunding public education in North Carolina. 

BOTTOM LINE: North Carolina is the biggest battleground in the country – and Democrats are poised to win up and down the ballot. Democrats are focused on pocketbook issues like lowering the cost of health care, creating a strong economy that benefits everyone, and investing in our public schools. Voters rejected the Republicans’ toxic agenda of fear and division in 2018 and will reject it again in 2020.  But we have to make sure that our people get out and vote. Ask three friends to vote. Tell them how important it is that we all vote.

42. TO PROTECT FOOD ASSISTANCE FOR THE WORKING POOR

North Carolina currently ranks 41st in the country in food insecurity; over 15% of households don’t have adequate food for one or more of their members. Yet the GOP-controlled NCGA has long sought major cuts to NC’s food stamps program, eliminating access for 105,000 participants in 2015, and threatened to make an additional 133,000 participants ineligible in their proposed 2017 budget. Besides reducing hunger, food assistance has been shown to sharply improve educational and other life outcomes for children.

NC tool allows voters to track mailed ballots

The State Board of Elections has launched a tool that will allow people who have mailed in absentee ballots to track the ballots through the process.

State Board of Elections Executive Director Karen Brinson Bell said the BallotTrax tool is meant to build confidence in North Carolina’s absentee voting system.

“We hope that that’s a way people can be reassured,” Brinson Bell said.

The tool is available only to people who have requested an absentee ballot. More than 800,000 absentee ballots have already been requested – about 13 times the normal level of a presidential election – and more than 35,000 ballots have already been returned.

Once a voter sets up an account – name, birth date and ZIP code are required – the system will notify the person that the requested ballot has been mailed. Once the ballot is completed, witnessed and mailed, the system will notify the voter when the U.S. Postal Service has it, when it’s received by the local board of elections and when it’s accepted.

If a ballot is not accepted, the county board of elections should notify the voter so he or she can fix any mistakes. The voter may have to fill out an affidavit with corrections, Brinson Bell said, noting that the person may have to do a completely new ballot in some cases.

“The witness aspect is probably the one where we’re seeing the most problems. Either the witness didn’t sign, or the witness didn’t provide their information,” she said.

Sending ballots in early allows more time to get it right, she said.

If absentee voters don’t trust the mail, they or an immediate relative can hand-deliver their ballots to the county board.

Brinson Bell advised against following President Donald Trump’s recommendation to vote by mail and then go the to polls to verify the absentee vote was received.

“What we would do is indicate to the voter that they have already voted, and we would not issue them another ballot,” she said. “If people do start showing up in person at our early voting sites or on Election Day just to check the status of your ballot, I think that would be really unfortunate, because it could potentially create lines and exposure for people.”

Simply requesting a mail-in ballot doesn’t lock a voter into that form of voting. Anyone who changes his or her mind can simply scrap the mail-in ballot and head to an early voting site or local polling place to vote in person. But they cannot vote both by mail and in person.

The BallotTrax service is free for the state this year and will cost $5,000 to run next year if leaders decide to keep it, said Pat Gannon, spokesman for the State Board of Elections.

43. TO PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTION

In 2018, the NC GOP used its supermajorities to place six deceptively-written Constitutional Amendments on the ballot with the aim of seizing the power of appointments for state courts and the board of elections from the Governor; disenfranchising a large group of voters – disproportionately poor, African-American, and elderly – by requiring a photo ID to vote (#22); and capping income taxes well below what they had been for the highest tax bracket prior to 2013. Amendments to the state constitution that benefit the people of North Carolina should be made following thoughtful deliberation and debate. Instead, the NC GOP has abused the process for blatant partisan power grabs. North Carolina’s Constitution is extremely vulnerable to Republican supermajorities in the NCGA. The NC GOP is more than willing to deceive and mislead the public to seize more power for themselves and systematically disenfranchise voters.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Legacy

In the rearview mirror, the victories of a trailblazing feminist. On the road ahead, the threat of an entrenched and powerful minority.

By  NYT The Editorial Board

Sept. 19, 2020

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday at the age of 87, will forever have two legacies.

The one Americans could be focusing on right now is the one of legal trailblazer: Justice Ginsburg, the second woman ever to be appointed to the Supreme Court, paved the way for women’s equality before the law, and for women’s rights to be taken seriously by the courts and by society.

As an attorney she argued, and won, multiple cases at the Supreme Court in the 1970s, eventually persuading an all-male bench to apply the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause to sex-based discrimination.On the court, she continued to point the way toward greater equality in opinions like United States v. Virginia, which held unconstitutional the Virginia Military Institute’s policy of refusing to admit women. “Inherent differences between men and women, we have come to appreciate, remain cause for celebration,” Justice Ginsburg wrote for a 7-to-1 majority, “but not for denigration of the members of either sex or for artificial constraints on an individual’s opportunity.” It was sweet revenge for someone who had once been rejected for jobs at top New York law firms, and denied a clerkship on the Supreme Court, because she was a woman.

The other legacy of Justice Ginsburg’s that the country is now urgently forced to confront is the cold political reality that she died in the final weeks of a presidential campaign, at a moment when President Trump and Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, appear to be dead-set on replacing her with someone who would obliterate much of the progress she helped the country make.

The court now faces a serious crisis of legitimacy. Senate Republicans, who represent a minority of the nation, and a president elected by a minority of the nation, are now in a position to solidify their control of the third branch of government. The Supreme Court, with another Trump appointee, could stand as a conservative firewall against the expressed will of a majority of Americans on a range of crucial issues.

The cynicism of the political moment stands in sharp relief against Justice Ginsburg’s idealism. She faced down multiple bouts of cancer and other health emergencies during her tenure on the bench. Through it all, she never wavered in her commitment to the court as a vehicle for a more just and more equal America. She was a dogged, tireless fighter — it was easy to imagine she might live another 20 years, battling back whatever came at her. Of course, we knew better.

Defending her decision not to retire when President Barack Obama could have picked her replacement, she said, “There will be a president after this one, and I’m hopeful that that president will be a fine president.” She never anticipated President Donald Trump, whom she called a “faker” during a 2016 interview. She shouldn’t have said it, but she was right.

Everyone who cares about the integrity of the nation’s highest court has been dreading a moment like this — the death of a justice as Americans are already casting their ballots in the most contentious and consequential presidential election in living memory. The future of the court now rests in the hands of Mr. McConnell, the man who has done more damage to the court’s standing than perhaps anyone in modern American history.

With Mr. McConnell’s help, President Trump has already filled two seats on the court with hard-right ideologues. The first, Neil Gorsuch, is a justice solely because of Mr. McConnell’s obstruction, on false pretenses, of President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland. The second, Brett Kavanaugh, was a highly contentious nominee with a long, troubling record in government that Mr. McConnell hid from the American people. And that was before Mr. Kavanaugh faced credible allegations of sexual assault.

At least there was no question about the circumstances surrounding the vacancy that Justice Kavanaugh filled. In contrast, Justice Gorsuch’s seat is forever stained by Mr. McConnell’s outrageous ploy to deny a Democratic president an appointment. At the time, the majority leader claimed that he was holding open the seat that had been held by Justice Antonin Scalia because it was an election year, and the American people should have a “voice” in choosing the next justice.

Mr. McConnell disavowed that position almost immediately, claiming that it only applies when the presidency and the Senate are controlled by different parties. On Friday night, he said, “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate” — even though the election is less than two months away. So much for the American people.

Throughout the Trump years, Republicans have shown little willingness to place principle above party, or to place the long-term interests of the nation above short-term political victories. But perhaps a few Republican senators will take the quickened pulse of the nation and consider the case to postpone resolving Justice Ginsburg’s replacement.

Justice Ginsburg, who was Jewish, died on the eve of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year. Fittingly, it is a day when Jews look backward and forward, reflecting on what has passed, and preparing for what is to come. Justice Ginsburg’s death marks the end of her long battle on behalf of equality for all Americans. Others must now carry that fight forward.

44. TO RESTORE FUNDING FOR OUR PUBLIC COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES

Due to massive cuts by the GOP-controlled NCGA, state funding for public colleges and universities is 17% lower per capita today than it was in 2008. As a result, tuition has increased at 2.5 times the rate of inflation over this same period. Our public universities have long been a crown jewel of our state. It’s time to restore the funding needed to keep them distinguished and affordable.

Protecting Voting Rights During COVID-19

North Carolina Democrats are committed to ensuring that every North Carolinian, even in times of crisis, are able to easily cast a ballot and make their voice heard.

While Republicans are pushing the same voter suppression agenda they’ve always worked towards, we will continue the fight to ensure that every North Carolina voter can safely cast their ballot.

Rather than working to make voting easier in the face of an unprecedented pandemic, President Trump and Republicans have again shown that they’re more interested in suppressing the vote

An election isn’t free and fair if voters have to choose between staying safe from a deadly virus or putting themselves at risk by voting in person.


Poll Observers Needed

The Alamance County Democratic Party alongside NCDP and Biden/Harris Coordinated Campaign is recruiting poll observers to help monitor and report on possible irregularities at polling locations.

45. TO RESTORE AND EXPAND THE RACIAL JUSTICE ACT

In 2013, the GOP-controlled legislature repealed the Racial Justice Act, which provided a path for inmates on death row to avoid execution if racial bias was a significant factor in their cases. The law was originally passed in 2009 following clear evidence of racial bias in the application of the death penalty and the exoneration of numerous African Americans who had been wrongfully convicted by all-white juries. In recent years, many states and jurisdictions, including red states like Utah, have enacted similar laws. North Carolina should fully restore and expand the Racial Justice Act.

School Reopening

Tens of Thousands of North Carolina students returned to classrooms this week, many at their Kitchen Tables. Of course, there were mishaps, it was inevitable. But the most important thing is the health and safety of our children. 

Governor Cooper and Democratic Legislators are working to keep our schools safe this year while ensuring they still provide our students with the education they need.

UNC Chapel-Hill has chosen to move to full online instruction for undergraduate students.  

There is no perfect solution for reopening schools but we must prioritize teachers’ and students’ physical and emotional health above all. 

We know that this will be a learning process for all of us – students, teachers, parents, school administrators, and public officials. We will stay flexible as we monitor the spread of COVID-19 in our state, review new evidence and guidance, and seek feedback from families, students, teachers and staff, and local communities.

It is critical that all North Carolinians continue to adhere to proper safety guidelines. If North Carolina experiences a new spike in cases, the re-opening of our schools would be at risk. 

A full list of guidance schools are required to adhere to is available HERE

46. TO HOLD DUKE ENERGY ACCOUNTABLE FOR POLLUTING OUR WATER

Duke Energy has 110 million tons of coal ash stored in leaking ponds around the state. Coal ash contains incredibly high levels mercury, cadmium, arsenic and other heavy metals that cause cancer and neurological problems. In 2014, 39,000 tons spilled into the Dan River near Eden, coating the riverbed in toxins and contaminating ground and surface water. Despite acknowledging leaks at eleven plants across the state, the company has faced few consequences. In April 2018, Duke Energy agreed to pay $156,000 for polluting ground and surface waters around three power plants, an amount comparable to a couple of days’ salary for the company’s CEO, Lynn Good.

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.

PUBLIC SCHOOL FORUM: Legislature falls short of promised sound basic education for all

The following statement was issued by the Public School Forum of North Carolina following adjournment of the General Assembly last week.

The General Assembly approved measures and appropriated additional federal and state COVID relief funds to public schools across North Carolina, providing some additional, much-needed resources at a time of unprecedented upheaval. The Forum has shared the data on and emphasized the voices of our district leaders on the importance of schools having the budgets that they were expecting to have this year, as well as additional funds to support COVID-19 related expenses and broadband infrastructure across the state.

These immediate actions are essential for meeting the needs of our students and the inequities exacerbated by COVID-19 only amplify the importance of the need for further and deeper investments in our public schools. The legislative action taken that holds local school budgets harmless for enrollment declines experienced during the 2020-21 school year is critical for the continued operations of our schools and the success of our students.

But at a time when adequate and equitable funding for public schools is more critical than ever, the legislation passed also includes policy changes that divert funding away from public schools through the expansion of the Opportunity Scholarship Program and two other voucher programs, which is likely to hinder the state’s ability to meet its constitutional obligation to ensure every child in North Carolina has access to a sound basic education.

Importantly, during the same week, Judge David Lee adopted a 2021 plan for North Carolina to take initial steps toward meeting this constitutional obligation as upheld by the Leandro litigation.  This plan requires significant investments in teacher preparation and compensation, high-quality early childhood education programs, turnaround programs for low-performing schools and districts, and a retooled school finance model that more equitably and adequately distributes public dollars to public schools.  The legislation that was passed provides important and necessary supports for schools this year, but does not address the specific needs identified in Leandro.

As we look ahead, the General Assembly has the opportunity — and, in fact, an obligation — to take a more comprehensive approach to ensuring our state’s children continue along a path toward prosperity that North Carolina’s economy can enjoy in the years to come.

The roadmap has been provided — and the answer is investing in public education. North Carolina was ranked 48th in the nation on per-pupil spending when adjusted for regional cost differences and 49th in the nation on actual funding effort. Thus, our state can and must do better for our students and our economy.

This global pandemic has laid bare the significant structural inequities that so many of our children already face on a daily basis — especially those who are black and brown and live under the scourge of systemic racism, those with learning differences, those who live in rural areas, English language learners and those who live in low-income households.

These inequities have and will continue to become even greater during this enormously challenging time. It is incumbent upon the leaders of our great state to ensure that these inequities are faced head-on, and with the Leandro plan adopted by the North Carolina court system, we look forward to our governor, our State Board of Education, and our General Assembly working together to ensure that every child is provided with a sound basic education.


Poll Observers Needed

The Alamance County Democratic Party alongside NCDP and Biden/Harris Coordinated Campaign is recruiting poll observers to help monitor and report on possible irregularities at polling locations. This is different from poll greeting in that poll observers are there to record and report and help protect all voters. Trainings will be provided as well as PPE (masks, gloves, sanitation stations).If you are interested.

47 TO INCREASE FEMALE REPRESENTATION IN RALEIGH

Despite a surge, women currently make up only 26% of our representation in the NCGA. In 2018, Democratic women flipped seven seats in the NCGA, and there are many outstanding progressive women running in the most competitive races in the NC House and NC Senate in 2020, providing a chance to sharply increase the number of women in the NCGA and build a bigger bench of experienced female leaders for future statewide races.
