NC NAACP To Hold Special Moral Monday November 28

The fight to protect our Constitutional right to vote continues!

See the Post-Election Sermon Everyone Is Talking About!

Pat McCrory’s frivolous elections complaints and bogus fraud accusations are designed to undermine the democratic process. “The results are clear: Roy Cooper won the election, and it’s time for McCrory to concede,” said Gerrick Brenner, executive director of Progress NC Action. “McCrory has no path to victory, yet he continues to level desperate attacks against lawful voters, African-American community organizations, and his own appointees to local Boards of Elections.”

Here are two that are being heard on Tuesday Nov. 22nd:

RALEIGH, NC – The State Board of Elections will hold a meeting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 22 to discuss the recent protests filed by Governor McCrory regarding claims of voter fraud. The meeting will be held at the Wake County Commons Building, 4011 Carya Drive, Raleigh, NC 27610.

DURHAM, NC  – The Durham Board of Elections met the evening of Monday, November 21, 2016, for preliminary consideration of election protests filed by John Posthill.  Preliminary consideration is the first step in a quasi-judicial process to determine whether the protest is upheld.

Following the preliminary consideration, the Board voted unanimously that the provisional ballot protest met the standard necessary to move forward to an evidentiary hearing. Additionally, the board voted unanimously that there was a lack of probable cause to move forward with a protest alleging that an unlawful absentee ballot mill was operated in Durham County and a protest alleging that  persons voted in multiple jurisdictions. Likewise, the board voted unanimously to defer the protest alleging that seven alleged felons voted unlawfully in Durham County until after the State Board of Elections meeting which is scheduled for 10:00am tomorrow. The State Board of Elections is expected to provide guidance relevant to this particular protest.

The board will reconvene on Nov. 22nd for the evidentiary hearing at 2:00pm at the Durham County Health and Human Services Building, located at 414 East Main St, second floor conference rooms.

The fight to protect our Constitutional right to vote continues!
