Know your rights post Florence on National Voter Registration Day

Today is National Voter Registration Day, and early voting for the November midterm elections in North Carolina is less than a month away.

Voters can make sure they are registered to vote and that their information is current here. Anyone who isn’t registered to vote or who needs to make changes to their registration has until Oct. 12 to do so and can find more information here.

The Southern Coalition for Social Justice (SCSJ) also recently released information about voter rights post Hurricane Florence, which devastated much of the eastern part of the state.

“In the wake of natural disasters, voters frequently get displaced from their homes,” a news release states. “That does not mean that these voters lose their right to vote and have their political voices heard. Survivors of Hurricane Florence who have been forced from their homes because of the storm and subsequent flooding have several options available to them to vote this November.”

The State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement is still assessing damage from the hurricane to early voting sites. The State Board and voting rights advocates have been working double-time to get out the vote in the wake of the disaster.
