Who We Are

Secure the Vote NC is a project of American Majority
Action-North Carolina and partner organizations.

We believe all voting methods are secure in North Carolina, including no-excuse voting by mail, early in-person voting, and election day voting.

However, we believe the best path to victory for conservatives is for voters to vote early and secure their vote before election day.
