Voting info from Democracy NC - the spaghetti mess of new district maps

From our friends at Democracy NC - http://www.democracy-nc.org/

Please share this info with family, friends and neighbors if needed:

Early voting for the primary has begun – and so has the confusion caused by the new district maps.

In addition to the new districts, about two million NC voters live in precincts split into different parts with different General Assembly or Congressional districts. That means neighbors who vote at the same precinct location will receive different ballots.

People are surprised to see so many strange names on their ballot – and they may even get the wrong ballot!

Be prepared – Look at your ballot before you vote and call our free hotline if you have any problems.

Call this toll-free Election Protection Hotline if you have a voting problem or question: 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683)

Visit this website to preview your ballot before voting and find your polling place for Early Voting or Election Day: http://www.NCElectionConnection.com

Once you’ve seen your sample ballot, you can learn more about the candidates at: http://www.NCVoterGuide.org

Trained staff are answering the hotline throughout the primary election period, April 19 to May 8.

ALSO: We need to hear your story if you’re having new problems because of the district changes. Were you denied a sample ballot at the elections office? Or are you having trouble learning about your new districts or who will be on your ballot? Is it harder to talk to your neighbors about the candidates because they now vote with a different ballot? Please write us at info@democracy-nc.org or call the Hotline.

Please let others know to report problems to the Hotline!
