It is hard to believe that Election Day is almost here! In North Carolina, early voting began on Thursday, October 15, and concludes Saturday, October 31. Election Day is Tuesday, November 3
Familiarize Yourself with the Candidates: I urge you to make yourselves familiar with the candidates on your ballot. CWA has partnered with ivoterguide.com. Simply provide your zip code to view national candidates, North Carolina Council of State, State House and Senate, and Judicial candidates. Liberal or conservative values have been assigned to each candidate utilizing financial data, donation records, voting scorecards, and endorsements according to expert panel reviews.
Assist Others to the Polls: Make plans now to take a neighbor or friend with you to the polls this election season. Know that during both Early Voting and Election Day, every voting site in North Carolina offers curbside voting for voters who are unable to enter the voting place without physical assistance due to age or disability.

- View voting equipment by county for a one-stop early voting site during any time that site is open for voting.
Avoid Voter Fraud: I encourage voters who have received an absentee ballot to drop them off at a one-stop early voting site during their scheduled hours or on Election Day, November 3.
Be attentive when viewing your ballot. Candidate names are not appearing consistently with a party affiliation. Thankfully, the judiciary races include party affiliation next to their names. Please vote for all races down the ballot.
Make it a Priority! I appeal to each person to make voting in this year’s election a priority! President Ronald Reagan’s Freedom Speech in 1964 has never been more crucial than in the 2020 elections:
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Paul instructed in 1 Timothy 2:1-4, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
Let us fast and pray and vote your values.
For Truth and Righteousness,
