Everything is on the line in North Carolina this year.

North Carolina has a critical election this year, including for our next governor and state legislators. Mark Robinson, the Republican nominee for governor, and leaders of our state legislature are hellbent on eliminating access to reproductive health care, which we know will have a disproportionate impact on LGBTQ+ people, Black, Latino & Indigenous people, those living with low incomes, young people, and folks in rural areas. Their end goal is to eliminate abortion access in our state entirely. We must show up to stop them and protect our freedoms by voting this year. 


Your vote couldn't be more important.

  • The governor's seat is on the ballot. It is critical we have a governor, like Josh Stein, who will veto any attacks against our reproductive freedom. 
  • All 170 seats in the state legislature are on the ballot. If there are enough anti-abortion state legislators in the General Assembly, they can vote to ban abortion and override the governor's veto (just like they already did with the 12-week ban).
  • There is one state Supreme Court seats on the ballot. The justice elected to this line will be the last line of defense against attacks on personal freedom and abortion access.

Together we can make sure they do not get this power. Register to vote. Get informed.
