Civitas Files NVRA Letters With State and Six County Election Offices, Including Watauga

Release from Civitas Institute

The Civitas Institute has sent letters to the NC State Board of Elections and Watauga, Buncombe, Bladen, Pasquotank, Wake, and Durham counties, requesting a thorough examination of voter rolls and full compliance with section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act.

Shoddy registration and verification practices in North Carolina have resulted in reports of voter rolls fraught with ineligible voters, unverified voters, active felons, and voters who don’t live in North Carolina. This must be corrected to ensure we have elections free of disenfranchisement of legitimate voters.

Civitas President Francis De Luca stated, “Civitas has a long history fighting to protect the votes of all North Carolinians. And toward that end, we will continue to challenge the same-day registration process in North Carolina, which has continued to disenfranchise legitimate voters. North Carolina voters deserve better. Civitas will pursue every avenue necessary to ensure that every voter is verified as is required by the National Voter Registration Act.”


Founded in 2005, the Civitas Institute is a Raleigh, NC-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit policy organization committed to creating a North Carolina whose citizens enjoy liberty and prosperity derived from limited government, personal responsibility and civic engagement. To that end, Civitas develops and advocates for conservative policy solutions to improve the lives of all North Carolinians.
