Voting in Next Week’s Primary Will Make a Difference

Next Tuesday, May 8, is the primary election throughout North Carolina. All the legislative races are contested this year, so voting in the primary to select who will face off against each other in the General Election in November is particularly important.

Since the stakes are so high in these primary races, be sure to vote on Tuesday. Early voting for the primary runs through Saturday, May 5, at 1 p.m. Check the Board of Elections site to find the early voting site near you.

Be sure you are registered to vote in the Nov. 6 General Election. Use this application, and then be sure to mail it to the Board of Elections address on the form.  If you’re not sure you are registered to vote or wonder if your registration is out of date (if you have moved recently), you can look up your information on the Board of Elections website. Once you find your registration, you can view a sample ballot for your particular precinct.

Make your voice heard!

Beyond going to the polls, you may want to exercise your right to give to the NCMS PAC, which supports the candidates who understand and support our priorities. Learn more and give.
