With so many counties cash-strapped as a big election approaches, we need to start asking why haven't the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) funds been released yet, and what can we do about it?
The first step is to start raising awareness. So please share this video, or start this conversation among your circle of friends, or groups you belong to. I think most average North Carolinians, left, right, center, or whatever else, want to see elections that are fair, that are run smoothly, and that are viewed as having results that are reliable and accurate.
Releasing these funds can help ensure we have trustworthy elections, which is crucial for an effectively run democracy, and help ensure we have adequate early voting sites as well, which is a convenience that I think everyone can appreciate.
