Here’s the e-blast that just went out urging North Carolinians to go to the  polls. And not a mention about Amendment One and that people should vote against it. You’re supposed to have the President’s back, even as his campaign craps on all of the backs of people working to stop discrimination from being enshrined in North Carolina’s constitution.

Couldn’t even spare a sentence to say “vote against Amendment One.”

Thanks a lot. You’ve made things crystal clear. See my earlier post, Open letter to Obama’s NC re-election team: including Amendment One in final GOTV effort?


Friend —

Here’s a great way folks in North Carolina can show their support for President Obama: Participate in tomorrow’s Democratic primary, and cast a vote for the President.

The primary is a great opportunity to come out, meet other supporters in your area, and make your voice heard. And even though we already know that President Obama will be our nominee, it’s important that we let him know we’re standing with him, now and in November.

Look up the polling place in your neighborhood now.

Here’s everything you need to know:

Who can vote: Anyone who will be 18 years old by November 6th, 2012, and registered to vote by the April 13th deadline.

What to expect: Longtime registered voters don’t need any form of ID to vote. If you are a first-time voter or are newly registered, bring a photo ID or a copy of any document that includes your name and current address (like a utility bill, government check, paycheck, or bank statement).

What if you’re not registered at your current address? Unfortunately, you can’t vote in the primary, but there is still time to register and cast a ballot for President Obama in November. To print a registration form, go to or contact your local Obama field office.

When and where to vote: Primary voting runs from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. You can look up your local polling place here. Your vote matters, and this is one of our easiest chances before November to show President Obama that we’ve got his back.

So whether you’ve voted in one of these before, or you’re brand-new to this experience, don’t miss the North Carolina Democratic primary this Tuesday, May 8th.
