    I live in Ellie’s district, and she is amazing. I get her email reports each week on the madness going on in the NC General Assembly. She will be missed but I know she’ll be doing good work elsewhere, and like Ellie, any volunteering that I do in my area is going to be poured into voter education and rights. I am completely disgusted with the NC Republican Party and their monied interests, ie, Art Pope.

    Senator Kinnard is a great woman. I live in her district and my family and I hope to volunteer in her effort to get people properly registered and identified to vote! The people of North Carolina will not stand for this.

    While I am no longer a North Carlina resident, I do keep tabs on NC politics so imagine my surprise to discover the antics of the NC Legislature. While I am shocked and embarrassed at what’s happening, I can’t help but get excited. This a golden opportunity to register, more students, minorities and poor people, educate them on what ID is needed and where their polling places are. While young people and minorities usually only vote in Presidential elections, I think this will be just the instigator to get out the vote not just in NC but throughout the southeast. Thank you Ms. Kinnaird and thank you Montravious King for standing up for the right to vote. And a big thank you to the state republican party for handing us this gift!
