About This State
North Carolina! Home to the biggest rivalry in college sports: NC State vs. Wake Forest. Right? That feels right. You know what else does? Voting. Here's what you need to know about Election Day in the Tar Heel State.Register To Vote
Why Is This State Special
Some of the good news for Democrats in 2016 was that North Carolina elected both a Democratic governor and attorney general, even though the state tipped to Trump. This meant that swing voters could be won over, and in 2018, Democrats built on that success by winning enough seats to end the Republicans’ supermajority in the state legislature, despite severe gerrymandering. In 2020, popular Democratic Governor Roy Cooper will be back on the ballot, and so will the deeply unpopular Republican Senator Thom Tillis. So as younger and more diverse people move into the state, winning in North Carolina isn’t certain, but it’s definitely within reach.ROAD TO WIN

Get Mitch or Die Trying
Mad that the Senate isn't doing anything except passing a corporate tax cut, even in the amidst of a pandemic? Blame the self-described "Grim Reaper" of progress, Mitch McConnell. With 18% approval in his home state, he probably shouldn't be leading the country. Time to take the gavel away.
