“Voting is the foundation stone for political action.”
Dr. King said, “This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.” You are called to lead in 2016: It’s your time! Get ﬂyers with the election rules to share with others. Help people register and vote. Create a voter engagement ministry in your congregation.
Tips For Voting In 2016: The Primary is March 15
1. Photo ID: You can vote with or without a NC driver’s license or other photo ID. The poll worker will ask for an ID, but if you don’t have one, you can vote by giving the last 4 digits of your Social Security number & birth date. More options at GotIDNC.com.
2. Register Early: Register at your current address at least 25 days before Election Day. Check your registration at www.demnc.co/myreg or call 888-OUR-VOTE. You must update your registration if you move.
3. Vote Early: Vote during the Early Voting period (find locations at www.ncsbe.gov). Avoid possible bad weather and last-day lines on Election Day.
4. Election Day: If you wait until Election Day, be sure to go to your own precinct’s polling place to vote. Do not go to an Early Voting site on that day.
5. Unaffiliated Voters: You may ask for the Democratic or Republican ballot in the primary.
