Have you or anyone you know not yet voted in the 2020 primary election? Given all that is at stake this year, no one should miss the last chance to help determine their party’s nominees, this Tuesday, March 3. Let’s recap some of the key primary contests with big environmental impacts for North Carolina.
Our Conservation PAC has endorsed a number of key pro-environment leaders, including Gov. Roy Cooper, four state Senate candidates, and seven state House candidates. After the primary, it will undertake another round of endorsements for the fall general election.
Meanwhile, our national partner group, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, has endorsed former state Sen. Cal Cunningham for U.S. Senate. Cunningham is among the candidates running in the Democratic primary for the chance to challenge Sen. Thom Tillis. Tillis’ atrocious 7% lifetime score on LCV’s national environmental scorecard ranks him among the most pro-pollution members of Congress.
Polls are open March 3 from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. If you are registered to vote at your current address, you can find your polling place and take a look at the candidates on your ballot here. Unfortunately, same-day registration ended with early voting on Saturday, February 29. If you are not registered at your current address, you can’t vote in the primary, but you can change your registration here so you can vote in any primary runoffs and in November.
