The Carter Center Bipartisan Network for Fair, Safe and Secure Elections
September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Moore County League of Women Voters to Partner with Carter Center’s Coalition for Trusted Elections
Save the date—September 27
The Carter Center, founded in 1982 by former President Jimmy Carter, has been monitoring elections throughout the world for decades and is now bringing its expertise to the U.S. to help assure fair, safe, and secure elections by helping to mitigate election violence. North Carolina, along with Florida, Arizona and Georgia, have been identified as states which may be at elevated risk of violence and other disruptions to the electoral process during the 2022 election.
The Carter Center is working in the four target states, including North Carolina, and an Advisory Council comprised of Unaffiliated, Green, Republican, and Democratic voters, has been building for the last seven months to garner all perspectives. The Co-leads for North Carolina are former Charlotte Mayor, Jennifer Roberts and retired NC Supreme Court Justice, Robert Orr.
The Carter Center is pleased to have the endorsement of the League of Women Voters North Carolina (LWVNC); the League of Women Voters of Moore County (LWVMC) will assist with their Coalition for Trusted Elections as a key partner and co-host of the event. The goal, which aligns well with the League’s mission, is to support confidence in our elections system, election officials, and the integrity of the process itself, which will encourage the participation of more voters.
The project in North Carolina involves town hall meetings that will feature bi-partisan panels of county election officials, staff, elections attorneys, operatives from both major parties, and media personalities.
Discussions will focus on electoral mechanics, back-up systems in place, fail-safe guarantees against hacking election results, and questions on fraud and mismanagement.
The Carter Center Event date is Tuesday, September 27, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Sandhills Community College, Bradshaw Auditorium.
Further details, including panel participants, will be provided as they become available.
