PRESS ADVISORY

PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY

Democracy North Carolina is releasing new information about hundreds of voters who tried to vote in the May primary but were denied a chance to participate because of major changes in NC’s election law.

The press conference includes the personal stories of a soldier, nurse, disabled senior, student, former felon, precinct official and others – plus a list of over 400 voters from across the state who lost their right to vote.

Where: Outside the State Board of Elections office (441 N. Harrington St., Raleigh)

When: 1:00 PM on Wednesday, September 10, one month before the October 10 deadline to register to vote.

Why: To reveal the stories and data about who is losing their right to vote under the new law and to alert citizens what they can do to avoid harm.
