Kathryn Bundy: Preserve early voting

April 29, 2013 

Preserve early voting

Early voting has been overwhelmingly successful in N.C. More than half of votes in 2012 were cast early. In this economy, when many people must work unusual hours to keep body and soul together, we need the flexibility that early voting represents.

What were we all taught in high school? Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. One person, one vote. By reducing barriers to the exercise of this right, we ensure true representation. Preserve early voting as it is.
