Election Law Changes and Nonprofits


In August 2013, the N.C. General Assembly passed H.B. 589, the Voter Information Verification Act (VIVA), which makes several significant changes to North Carolina’s election laws.  Legislators made important changes to this law in June of 2015.  Because nonprofits are among the most trusted institutions in their communities, it is important that they provide accurate, nonpartisan information to their staff, volunteers, and those they serve about the election process.
