If you think your vote won’t matter in tomorrow’s local elections and are planning on staying home, think again.
A recent study from the nonpartisan voting rights group Democracy North Carolina shows that in a surprising number of cases a handful of votes can determine who wins or loses, especially in odd- year municipal elections.
Consider this, in 2015 researchers identified 69 cities in our state where the mayor or a town council member won their respective election by five or fewer votes.
Democracy North Carolina’s Bob Hall joined Policy Watch over the weekend to discuss the findings. Click below to listen to Hall’s radio interview with Chris Fitzsimon.
