Other Important Polling Information
Need a ride to your polling place? Call the Rides hotline at 252-78-RIDES (252-787-4337). Lyft and Uber are also supposedly offering free and discounted rides to the polls.


Voter Protection
I was thrilled to see a couple of yellow shirts in front of my polling place on Saturday when I was poll greeting. Democracy NC has fought the good fight to make sure that people’s right to vote is protected. So, if you have any questions or need to report a problem? Call or text the toll-free voter hotline: 888-OUR-VOTE (888-687-8683).


Also, please share this information with your friends on social media. The best ways to do that:

Tell the Senate to Support the Shield Act
We’re still waiting for the GOP to pay any attention to issues related to election security. Instead, they have spent the last few months shielding Trump, Rudy, and friends from any accountability when it comes to inviting foreign meddling in our elections. The House has passed several bills to address election security. One of those, The Shield Act, will close loopholes that allow foreign spending in our elections, boost disclosure and transparency requirements, and create a duty to report illicit offers of campaign assistance from foreign nations or governments. The SHIELD Act is comparable to Amy Klobuchar’s bill, The Honest Ads Act, and would go a long way toward shutting down the disinformation campaigns that continue to poison our public discourse.

Script:
Hello, I am a constituent calling from ____________ to urge Rep. _______________ to support The SHIELD Act. This bill would take important steps toward eliminating foreign spending in our elections. It would close loopholes that currently allow foreign spending on our elections and would improve transparency when it comes to political advertisements. The bill would also prohibit the spread of deceptive information about voting procedures. We need to work to block disinformation about our elections, and the SHIELD Act is an important first step.
