It's another long session at the NCGA, which means we will be hosting Women's Advocacy Day this year on March 14th!
The following article was originally posted in NC Policy Watch. From NCWU President and NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina Executive Director Tara Romano.
Tomorrow, August 26, is celebrated as Women’s Equality Day, commemorating the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution. This amendment proclaimed that “the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” Sounds like women got the right to vote on that day in 1920, right? Well, not entirely.
Voting rules and regulations have become quite complicated in North Carolina since 2013, with plenty of ups and downs. This fall's big election will be a test for what we have in place. You may have questions, and we try our best to provide you the answers. Check out this 2016 Voter FAQ here, and see you at the polls!
