URGENT: Count every vote!
The NC election is NOT over!
Fight for NC (the NC Coordinated Campaign and NCDP) needs our help getting outstanding ballots counted through Nov 12.
Watch the recording of our 11/4/20 event about this here.
Understandably, some information has changed since then, including:
Training is no longer being offered for absentee ballot curing. Provisional ballots are what the Party needs help with.
The campaign has enough phone bankers. Thanks to those of you helping with that!
Why is this critical?
Many races are too close to call.
One very important statewide race we can certainly impact is Chief Justice Cheri Beasley's, who is currently down by about 2600 votes!
A few NC House races are also within reach.
Time is of the essence.
What is the difference between curing absentee ballots and resolving provisional ballots?
Curing resolves some issues with mail-in ballots that can be fixed by the voter signing an affidavit.
“Provisional ballots” are votes cast in-person on Election Day that require follow up action by the voter.
