Protect Voting Access in North Carolina
Take Action to Protect the Vote
Democracy advocates across the state need your support to stop legislation that would undermine every North Carolinian’s freedom to vote.
SB 725 will strip funding away from local election administrators, creating financial challenges that will impact already under-resourced communities, specifically Black, Latiné, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and Indigenous populations, older adults in residential living facilities, and voters with disabilities.
Without statewide funding to offset additional election costs, North Carolina’s 100 counties will have to bear the financial burden alone.
HB 259 would require the State Board of Elections (NCSBE) to identify and remove people from voting rolls who — at some point in the past — have been excused from jury service.
This could result in legitimate, naturalized voters being flagged for removal as non-citizens.
Additionally, the names, addresses, birth dates, and other personal information of people included in data received by the NCSBE would become public records, accessible to anyone. This could lead to community members being targets of harassment and violence.
We appreciate you and need your support to stop these harmful bills.
