We all want free and fair elections.

North Carolinians deserve a democracy that values and holds sacred the freedom to vote. At Common Cause North Carolina, we are committed to defending voting rights, making the ballot box accessible for all eligible voters and safeguarding our voting systems to guarantee accurate and fair elections. Every election year, we mobilize volunteers to help our fellow North Carolinians navigate the voting process and cast their votes without obstruction, confusion or intimidation.

Common Cause North Carolina is part of a nonpartisan Election Protection Coalition that seeks to ensure that every eligible voter who wants to vote can and that every vote is counted accurately. Our Election Protection program is not affiliated with any party, candidate or issue campaign.

Our trained, nonpartisan poll monitors are stationed on the ground at polling places to help ensure all voters have equal access to the ballot box. Join us!

We can’t do it without you…

In the months preceding an election, we conduct both virtual and in-person poll monitor training sessions. Then, on Election Day, groups of trained monitors are sent to polling places to help voters know their rights and to let them know about the 866-OUR-VOTE hotline.

Our trained, nonpartisan poll monitors are stationed on the ground at polling places as a crucial line of defense for voters against suppression tactics, confusing laws, outdated infrastructure and other impediments to making themselves heard. Above all, we inform voters of their rights, help elections officials handle problems in real time and notify legal teams when the courts’ involvement is needed.
