Neighbor 2 Neighbor Makes It Easy To GOTV In Your Community!

If you want to talk with friends and neighbors about voting against the amendments, supporting your local candidates or just remind them about early voting, but only feel comfortable speaking with registered Democrats or Unaffiliated voters, there's a new site that can help you identify those neighbors!

Neighbor 2 Neighbor was created to make those GOTV efforts easier in your own community, with information pulled directly from the public voter rolls. Just type in your name and address, click on "Details" under your name and then click "Make Walklist" for your street. 

You can also click the down arrow beside your street to make a walklist for an adjacent street. Once you have a list of names on an adjacent street, choose one, click the down area next to their street and get more adjacent streets. You can expand your walklist by as many streets as you want this way. 

Now that you have printed various walklists, feel free to drop them a note, give them a call or leave a NixAllSix flyer or postcard on their doorstep, with a reminder that early voting runs through Nov. 3rd. You can even print a copy of the Wake Co. early voting sites as well, or find a list of other county's sites here. 

Be sure to let them know that they can learn more about what is on their sample ballot at, or any of the other non-partisan guides listed below.


Early Voting Starts Tomorrow!

Votes have already come in via mail. As of yesterday, there have been 68,940 absentee ballots requested with 15% returned and accepted. Of those requested, Democrats make up 46%, Republicans 24% and Unaffiliateds 30%. Find a breakdown of the ballot data at Old North State Politics

Early Voting:
  • At “one-stop” Early Voting sites you can register, update your registration and vote at the same time. If you need to register or change your registration, be sure to bring either your NC driver's license, other gov't. photo ID with your name and address, a utility or other bill showing your name and address, or a student photo ID with a school document showing an NC address. 
  • Early Voting starts Wed., Oct. 17, and ends on Saturday, Nov. 3. Find your county's Early Voting sites here.

Absentee voting:
  • No excuse needed! Any registered North Carolina voter may request an absentee ballot by mail before Oct. 30th.
  • College Students may register and vote where they attend college if they plan on staying there indefinitely. OR they may register and vote in their home district by requesting an absentee ballot. 
  • When you receive your ballot, complete it fully, and sign the sealed envelope along with two witness signatures, and mail it back right away, before election day! By far the easiest and most efficient way to vote. 
Your polling place may have changed!

Other Ways You Can Get Involved

It has been shown that direct communication with voters is the best way to increase voter turnout. Nothing beats knocking on doors and reminding people that their vote is crucial, especially this year. But we understand not everyone can canvass, so we've included a few other ways in addition to knocking that you can be a part of this nationwide effort to protect our democracy and bring balance to our state and federal governments.
