  • #LetAggiesVote: Stop Erasing Aggie Voices
    Congratulations! With your support on our OrganizeFor platform, we were able to effectively organize a campaign to demand an Early Voting polling site on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University! It is because of the work of Color Of Change members like you, that the Guilford County Board of Elections has voted in favor of establishing a primary early voting site on campus. Cole Riley, a Color Of Change member, launched this campaign after he saw the confusion of his peers who didn’t know when or where they would vote since the campus is split between two precincts and the primary falls during A&T’s Spring Break. Cole is a sophomore, political science major at A&T and took action on behalf of his community to ensure that Chair, Jim Kimel and the Board of Elections lived up to their stated values of “maximizing voter registration and voter turnout efforts”. Voting barriers across North Carolina are a reminder of the suppression tactics that Black people face each election cycle. Your action forced the Guilford County Board of Elections to vote for an early voting polling site on campus and students will be able to make their voices heard! Our OrganizeFor platform was created to empower people like you to create the change you want to see in your community. You can start your own campaign at OrganizeFor.org. Thank you to all of our leaders, members, and supporters creating change and empowering our communities. Congratulations to Cole Riley and the students at A&T!

  • No voter suppression-don't make people vote in police stations!
    Lonnie Brigham, Jr. presented our petition, as reported in the Janesville Gazette http://www.gazettextra.com/news/government/polling-place-to-remain-at-janesville-city-hall/article_8f5de97b-ef5e-5aee-9828-2dcdd6487a2e.html and the council was able to see that this is an issue that matters to a lot of people. They are going to find other room in City Hall instead of moving the polling place to the police department. Thank you to everyone who signed and commented--you have helped keep voting accessible for everyone! Becky Beach
