Update on Oct. 2: The NC NOW PAC Endorses Sen. Mujtaba Mohammed (Senate District 38) and Rep. Kelly Alexander (House District 107).
Kamala Harris, if elected, would break the glass ceiling on many fronts – first woman as Vice President of the United States. First Black woman. First Asian American woman.

Many changes in 2020 show voting improvements, especially in the way that Absentee ballots can be used during the pandemic.
Only one witness and no notaries are required for this election. More at “North Carolina Gov. Cooper signs law making mail-in absentee ballots easier, elections safer because of COVID-19,” 6/12/20, WXII12.
Absentee ballots can be tracked as of Sept 2020. More at “Can’t wait to vote? Getting an absentee ballot just got a whole lot easier.” 9/2/20, NC Policy Watch.
Voters will have a chance to fix Absentee ballots that were filled in incorrectly. More at “North Carolina board agrees to more absentee ballot changes, 9/22/20, Associated Press.
The North Carolina State Board Of Elections provided “FAQs: Voting by Mail in North Carolina in 2020,” 9/1/20.
These changes are still so necessary, and should not be limited to voting during a pandemic – “Black voters were more than twice as likely to have mail-in ballots rejected than those submitted by the state’s white voters in 2018, and rejection rates for 2020 show a similar pattern, according to a new analysis by ProPublica and WRAL News.” More at “In North Carolina, Black Voters’ Mail-In Ballots Much More Likely to Be Rejected Than Those From Any Other Race,” 9/23/20, ProPublica.
