Legislative Call to Action for Poll Observer and Cast Vote Records Bills, Week of June 19th, 2023

Updated: Jul 16






The Poll Observer Bill and Cast Vote Records bills have moved from the NC Senate to House.

The Senate Redistricting & Elections Committee has updated the Omnibus Election Bill S 747 but it still does not include Poll Observers or Cast Vote Records.

S747 edition 2H 772 Poll Observer Appointments, Access and ActivityH 770 Access to Voted Ballots (Cast Vote Records) Ask members of the Senate Redistricting and Elections Committee to support NCEIT’s suggestion to include H772 on Poll Observers and H770 Access to Voted Ballots in S 747


Election Law Changes. - The Observer bill is important to election integrity because permitted activities need to be defined, so the observer can perform their duties. - Access to voted ballots is needed, so citizen analysts can view Cast Vote Records to match election results to the machine’s printed reports.
