Voting is the cornerstone of democracy. And yet, the right to vote is under constant threat. In North Carolina, we continue to see attempts to impose barriers to the ballot box, limit the times and ways people can vote, and keep formerly incarcerated people from voting once they are no longer held captive by the state.

The ACLU of North Carolina continues to defend and expand the right to vote through lobbying, litigation, and working in coalition with partner organizations across the state.

Right now, there are several anti-voting rights bills pending at the N.C. General Assembly. Click here to contact your legislators to defend the right to vote.



The ACLU has worked on redistricting issues for decades. Our redistricting page offers more information about North Carolina's redistricting process, as well as tools and resources to facilitate community engagement.
