Ways to make a difference 

ORGANIZE!
NC Votes is a grassroots activist group dedicated to mobilizing new voters to defeat Bush, primarily targeting people who did not vote in 2000 but would likely vote for a Democrat in 2004. Its volunteers knock on doors, talk to people about the real issues in the election--unemployment, healthcare, etc. -- encourage them to vote and register them if necessary.

"It makes me feel good to be part of a group that's doing something good, instead of just complaining," says Michele McIntosh, one of the organizers. "And a lot of other people feel the same thing."

The group's next meeting is Feb. 15, and its next canvass is Feb. 21. If you'd like to help organize, raise money or, especially, canvass, call McIntosh at 855-9393.

VOTE!
In Wake County, citizens may register to vote, make changes in registration or obtain a mail-in registration form at the following locations:

Board of Elections, 339 S. Salisbury St.
Public Libraries
Drivers License Offices
Public Assistance Agencies
Public High Schools
Town Halls

Or go to the Board of Elections website at msweb03.co.wake.nc.us/bordelec/default

All voter registration forms must be at the election office 25 days prior to the election. Upcoming elections include the presidential primary on May 4 and the presidential elections on Nov. 2.
