2018 - 2019 Proposed Program
The LWVODC Board recommends that the 2018-2019 Program concentrate on the following local activities, which are consistent with the LWVUS Campaign for Making Democracy Work®: Voting Rights, Improving Elections, and Redistricting.
Our Voter Services Action Team will continue working to expand voting rights, to ensure that existing pro-voter laws are being followed, and to challenge all efforts that limit voters' ability to exercise this basic right. Voter Services will also work to improve the voting experience, expand early voting, and improve polling place management in Orange, Durham, and Chatham Counties.
The Fair Elections Action Team (FEAT) will continue its work to educate voters about the impact of redistricting on fundamental voting rights and inform them about the status of LWVNC's various legal actions challenging racial and partisan gerrymandering at the state and federal levels.
The LWVODC Board further recommends that existing Action Teams continue their work for 2018-2019.

The League of Women Voters of Wake County has asked ODC Leaguers to assist them in voter registration of new citizens at the naturalization ceremony held every Friday at 10 am and a second one at 2 pm. The USCIS facility is on the edge of the Wake-Durham County lines off of Miami Blvd. at 301 Roycroft Drive, Durham, NC 27703. Packages with voter registration forms are provided by USCIS. Volunteers assist new citizens in completing the forms and collecting them. Betty Ellerbee from LWV-Wake will have a Wake Leaguer assist in the afternoon session to collect the forms and return them to the NC Board of Elections in Raleigh within the period as required by law.
