Neighbors on Call's Weekly Policy Update for 3/22/21


Voting Rights

  • On Thursday NC Senate Republicans filed a bill that would stop the collection of absentee ballots at 5 PM on Election Day, no matter when those ballots were mailed. This would further restrict the collection of absentee ballots, which currently can be collected for three days following an election if they are postmarked by Election Day. SB 326 also requires voters wishing to cast an absentee ballot to submit a request form by 5 PM the Tuesday two weeks before the election, with exceptions for voters who become sick or disabled in the weeks before Election Day.
