Key Election Dates

The Primary for 2010 will be held on May 4.  Now is a good time to make sure that you are registered.  This is something that you can do online.

From now until Saturday, May 1 you can participate in One-Stop Absentee voting. If you are qualified, you may register and then vote at a One-Stop Voting Site.  Here is how it works:
1. Go to a One-Stop Voting Site in your county of residence. Here is a complete list of available locations and dates/times that is periodically updated.
2. Fill out a Voter Registration form. You can get a copy of the Voter Registration form online before you go.
3. Show identification with your address, such as a driver's license. A complete list of what will be accepted as proof of meeting this requirement can be found at the NC Board of Elections web site.
4. Vote!

Tuesday, April 27 is the last day to request an Absentee Ballot in writing.  You will need to request your Absentee Ballot from your County Board of Elections. The only exceptions are due to illness or disability. The State Board of Elections has the list of County Board of Elections available online.

Monday, May 3 at 5:00 is when your Absentee Ballot must be received by the Board of Elections. The deadline to request absentee ballots for sickness/disability is 5:00 p.m. or postmarked by day of the Primary and received by 5:00 p.m. May 7, 2010.

Tuesday, May 4 is when actual in-person voting will take place. Polls open at 6:30a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.  If you are not sure about where you should vote, you can also find that location online.

Registering to Vote is Easy - Do It Now!

If you are not already registered to vote, it is too late to participate in the May 4 primary election. The good news is IT IS NOT TO LATE TO REGISTER FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION IN NOVEMBER!

The online registration form is just a click away. Take a minute to fill it out and mail it to your county board of elections. If you are not sure if you are registered, you can also check your voter registration status online. It is also important that you keep your registration current - another task that can be done easily online.

Isn't technology grand?

May 4 Primary and My Introduction to You

May 4 is an important day for the citizens to express their opinion on the issues of the day - especially where our 2nd Amendment rights are concerned. Primary elections will be held then and it is critical that you pull the lever for the candidates who most fully support our freedom.

In the coming days, I'll be posting information about the various candidates that will allow you to examine their position on this issue.

In other news, I've volunteered to support the NRA as their Election Volunteer Coordinator for North Carolina's 2nd Congressional District. Not sure whether you live in the district? The map below is added for your convenience. I'll also be adding some links to polling places, as well as information about early voting and how you can vote by absentee ballot if you anticipate that you will not be able to get to the polls on election day.
I'm really looking forward to working with my friends and neighbors in the district to advance the cause of the right to keep and bear arms. I look forward to hearing from you and welcome your thoughts and suggestions. Your concerns about how to protect our Right to Keep and Bear Arms are of paramount importance to me, and I'll need your help. Please send your e-mail to me at
