RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The North Carolina Democratic Party is asking the party faithful to help make sure Democrats have a photo I.D. to meet the new state law's requirement to vote in 2016. In an email under the signature of Matt Hughes, County Chairs Association, Hughes rallied the troops.

"The North Carolina Democratic Party needs our help.  We will begin calling and canvassing over 100,000 identified registered Democrats who may need a government issued ID in order to vote in the 2016 elections, and volunteers are needed!

County Parties and their Chairs from across the state will be organizing mass phone banks and canvasses so that these identified voters are contacted and reminded to obtain an ID.  Click here to sign up to volunteer.

We will begin outreach efforts within the next two weeks.  If you can spare an hour or two, or more, you will help make a difference.  Click here to volunteer.

Every vote matters.  Help us make sure these 100,000 plus Democrats are allowed to make their vote matter.

Democratically Yours,

Matt Hughes, President
County Chairs Association"

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - In a sign the 2016 gubernatorial campaign is underway, the state Republican Party has filed a public records request with Attorney General Roy Cooper’s office.

Poole says his party is trying to "hold Roy Cooper accountable for his 14 years as attorney general."

Cooper was the main speaker at the annual North Carolina Open Government Coalition’s “Sunshine Day” event, which is dedicated to transparency in government.
