Special Report - August 14, 2012
The North Carolina Family Policy Council is pleased to offer tools that individuals, churches, and civic and community organizations, can use to register to vote and to become educated about the candidates in the upcoming 2012 General Election. The Council’s 2012 Voter Registration Kit provides the tools churches, civic and community organizations, and individuals need to register every eligible North Carolinian to vote in the November 6 general elections. October 12 is the deadline for registering to vote or changing party affiliation. Both parties have set their slate of candidates from President down to local mayors and boards set, and will spend the next 84 days campaigning on a variety of issues to win over voters.
To vote in the November 6 general election, voter registration forms must be postmarked by October 12, or hand delivered to the local Board of Elections in person by that date. However, the Board of Elections allows citizens “who miss the registration deadline” to “register in person and then vote at one-stop voting sites in the person’s county of residence during the one-stop absentee voting period” (which runs from October 18 to November 3). Those who register during the one-stop voting period are required to “show acceptable proof of name and residence in the county.”
The North Carolina Family Policy Council is offering a 2012 Voter Registration Kit that provides the tools churches, civic and community organizations, and individuals need to register every eligible North Carolinian to vote in the November 6 general elections. The Voter Registration Kit includes a letter from our president, important voting dates, frequently asked questions about the State Board of Elections voter registration form, contact information for each of North Carolina’s 100 county boards of elections, and a copy of the North Carolina voter registration form.
Additionally, the NCFPC continues to prepare the 2012 General Election Voter Guide, which will be available online and in hardcopy at the beginning of October. Having surveyed 580 candidates, who are running for U.S. House, Council of State, N.C. Supreme Court, N.C Court of Appeals, N.C. Superior Court, and N.C. General Assembly, the Council is now compiling those answers into an interactive website and a convenient booklet to aid voters in their candidate choices. The 2012 General Election Voter Guide will provide an impartial and nonpartisan look at how the candidates respond to issues such as: a marriage protection amendment, abortion, adoption, budget and taxes, school choice, sex education, gambling, homosexual rights, religious freedom, embryonic stem cell research, end of life decisions, and more. The easy-to-use website will also include links to the candidates’ individual responses, including additional comments and explanations submitted by candidates.
Bulk copies of the 2012 Voter Guide will be available from the North Carolina Family Policy Council free-of-charge in October. The guides are packaged in bundles of 100. Pre-orders will be filled beginning October 1.
