We believe that democracy works best when everyone participates!
We need your help expanding the vote in NC! We train and mobilize volunteers to effectively share information about upcoming elections, help voters to register and understand their rights, and remind voters when and where to cast their ballot.
Ruth Gibson commented on Share a Story! 2016-07-13 21:28:58 -0400I was registering voters on the fourth of July outside the Kenan Stadium fireworks show, and a young woman came up as I called out an invitation to register. She was just about to turn 18, in a matter of hours, and was excited about being able to register (also excited about being able to buy a lottery ticket) and very glad to hear that she could register right then and there. Fortunately her mom happened to have the last 4 digits of her social security #, so we got it all done. Yay!
Volunteers are working together and in the community. Our best stories come from the our volunteers and organizers...
Stories of citizens who thought they could never vote becoming registered voters.
Stories of people who thought they would be unable to vote because of lack of ID.
Stories of people being truly grateful for our information.
Stories of volunteers making new friends or encountering friends they haven't seen in years!
Stories of humor & joy from all the different people we encounter.
Stories of patience, kindness, and acceptance.
Please take a minute to tell us a story!
