Voter Registration and ID Committee Gearing Up!
In the last 72 hours of the 2013 General Assembly, NC legislators passed a 56-page bill that changes how, when, and where voters can cast ballots and also changes the limits and disclosure requirements for political donors. A new analysis by Democracy NC shows that election law changes, confusion, and poor preparation may have blocked as many as 50,000 voters. Chatham has a proud history of high voter turnout – we must not let this law prevent Chatham voters from exercising their constitutional right to vote.
Under the leadership of Del Turner, the Voter Registration/Voter ID Committee will address this challenge in our county. You can be a part of this important work-- or perhaps you know friends who would be interested in helping – let them know about this opportunity.
Volunteers are needed to call voters, assist with filling out forms, and provide transportation to get ID’s. Voter Registration will begin the first week in April and continue through the year with a break in August. Volunteer for the amount of time you can – every hour helps.
Email Del Turner to find out more or volunteer.
