Their responses will be used to update Smoke the Vote and get a headcount of who might sponsor/cosponsor/support cannabis bills in the next session.
Please check Smoke the Vote to see if the incumbents/candidates in your districts have responded. https://vote.norml.org/states/NC
If they have not responded, you can help by reaching out to the incumbents/candidates in your districts and ask them to send in their response.
We need to elect cannabis advocates in such big numbers that they will be able to push action. Have you made plans to vote yet? If so, what about your family and friends? Registration information can be found here: https://norml.org/vote/
Here’s a quick overview on the ways to have your say in who represents you.
Vote early by mail. Learn how you can request an absentee ballot, complete your absentee ballot, and return your absentee ballot here: https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/vote-mail/detailed-instructions-voting-mail#requesting-ballot
Vote early in person. One-Stop early voting begins Thursday, October 15 and ends Saturday, October 31. You can register to vote, update your name and address, drop off your absentee ballot, and if eligible, may vote curbside. Get the details here: https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/vote-early-person

Vote in person on Election Day. Polling sites are open from 6:30am to 7:30pm on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. You will not be required to provide an ID.
Vote Safely and Minimize your Risk. Polling sites are usually busiest early in the morning and late afternoon hours. If possible, vote during non-peak hours. Adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear a face covering. As needed, masks, hand sanitizers, and pens will be provided.
Voter intimidation is a crime. If you witness harassment or intimidation, call Election Protection:
