Expert provides tips and debunks myths on voting rules in NC

The Winston-Salem Journal has published an excellent column by good government advocate Bob Hall of Democracy North Carolina that is worth sharing far and wide in the coming days:

These claims are all false.

As an independent watchdog group, Democracy North Carolina tracks all sorts of misinformation. Voters should learn about the candidates, but it’s also valuable to know your basic voting rights so you won’t be intimidated or discouraged by the next rumor that seems a little scary.

    Rob when you refer to Democracy NC as an independant watchdog, you are continuing the fraud. There is not one single non partisan bone in that organization. Just because they call themselves that does not make it so. When every single member of their board of directors is a partisan Democrat, when they receive contributions from a George Soros group, how can fair minded citizens consider them to be non partisan? I think it would be fairer to refer to Democracy NC as a liberal watch dog group.
