CEEP non-partisan NC voter guides just in time for early voting!
The Campus Election Engagement Project is a national, nonpartisan effort that helps administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state, and local elections. In addition to supporting student voting fellows across the across the country and funding our MidTermsMatter mini-grants program here in NC, CEEP produces non-partisan candidate and issue guides designed to give student voters straightforward, unbiased information. For 2018, CEEP has created several NC-specific guides and resources. PLEASE reproduce and distribute!
NC Supreme Court Candidate Guide – a 2-page guide to the 3 candidates who are vying for a seat on the state’s highest court: incumbent Republican Barbara Jackson, Democratic challenger Anita Earls, and Republican Chris Anglin. This is the most important statewide office on the 2018 ballot.
NC’s 9th U.S. Congressional District Candidate Guide – a 2-page guide to the top two candidates in one of the most competitive U.S. House races in the state. NC’s 9th Congressional District includes Robeson County (UNC Pembroke), parts of Mecklenburg County (Central Piedmont CC), and parts of Cumberland County (Fayetteville State).
NC’s 13th U.S. Congressional District Candidate Guide – a 2-page guide to the top two candidates in one of the most competitive U.S. House races in the state. NC’s 13th Congressional District includes parts of Guilford County (UNC Greensboro, High Point University, Guilford Tech, Guilford College, NC A&T, Bennett College) and parts of Davidson County (Davidson County CC).
NC Amendments Poster(reduced) – a 11 x 17-inch poster educating voters about the 6 proposed amendments to the NC constitution appearing on the ballot. For each amendment, the poster provides language that will appear on the ballot and bullet-point explanations of what the amendment would change, but it does not advocate for/against any of the measures. In NC, constitutional amendments that appear on the ballot can be approved by a bare majority (51%) of voters. The poster is created with resources from You Can Vote, a grassroots, non-partisan organization based in Durham, NC.
