What a wonderful time.

Great to meet everyone face to face and to celebrate this victory for our whole state.

Being a part of this unexpected coalition of unpaid citizen experts and activists that were able to get good legislation passed even though they all said we couldn't, restored my faith in government that works for the people when the people work for it.

There are few things that I have experienced with such a sense of triumph as when this bill was passed.

Many thanks to all of those who are part of N.C. Coalition for Verifiable Voting and especially to Joyce for her great leadership.
