Hello, this is Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, President of the North Carolina NAACP and this message comes to you from the NAACP and the Forward Together Movement saying if we ever needed to vote we sure do need to vote now.

Rosanell Eaton, my good friend who is over 90 years old, says, “You better be fired up and fed up and do something with your frustration.”

The deadline to register to vote is October 10, 2014. Did you know that even in the highest turn out year in modern times which was 2008, 30% of registered voters in North Carolina did not bother to cast a ballot. That is more than 1.7 million registered voters who are not participating.

We can do better than this.

The right to vote was won through blood, sweat, and tears and we need to use it. Go out and register someone to vote. If you want more information go to our website at naacpnc.org
