It looks like the Center for Voter Information is once again sending absentee ballot applications to all NC voters. If you see this white envelope in the mail, don’t throw it out! Please take a few minutes to fill out a form and request your absentee ballot. Or pass it along to another Granville County Democrat!
GCNCDP Treasurer Charlie Gunn has confirmed with our local Board of Elections that this form is correct and the return envelope is addressed properly for Granville County. Reverend Willie Darby of the local NAACP has also looked in this mailing and sent these tips and assurances:
To: GRANVILLE COUNTY NAACP MEMBERS, PASTORS, MINISTERS, CIVIC LEADERS, AND FRIENDS:
This is to notify you of the legitimacy of a 2020 STATE ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST FORM that you may have received by way of U. S. Mail. The form came from “THE CENTER FOR VOTER INFORMATION,” 324 S Wilmington St #417 Raleigh NC 27601.
If the form does not have any of your personal information already filled in then the form is okay/legitimate/authentic. Please note that the form is merely for you to request an absentee ballot.THE FORM IS NOT YOUR BALLOT. IT IS JUST A REQUEST TO HAVE A BALLOT FOR THE NOV. 3rd ELECTION SENT TO YOU SO THAT YOU CAN COMPLETE THE BALLOT AND MAIL IT TO YOUR LOCAL BOARD OF ELECTIONS.
If you plan to be absent or want to vote by mail the form must be completed and mailed to the Board of Elections right away so that you can receive your ballot, complete it and return it to the Board of Elections in ample time.
