Get Involved in Elections
Be a Democracy Hero
North Carolina county boards of elections are searching for democracy heroes to work at polling places and voting sites for the November 2020 general election.
Be a Student Election Assistant
In 2003, the North Carolina General Assembly passed a law allowing high school students to work in the polls on election day. Student Election Assistants carry some of the same responsibilities as election officials, and are compensated in the same way.
Join a MAT Team
A Multipartisan Assistance Team, or “MAT,” is a group appointed by a county board of elections to provide assistance with mail-in absentee voting to voters in facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes. For more information, see the Assistance for Voters in Care Facilities (MAT Teams) page.
