Raleigh Special Election Volunteer Sign-Up

At a recent work session, the Raleigh City Council announced a self-serving and unprecedented power grab to remain in office for an extra year.

With no public engagement and no public vote, Council unilaterally announced delaying elections until November 2022 and eliminating the option for a runoff.

Because of U.S. Census delays, most N.C. municipalities can’t hold valid elections this fall. The solution was to move them to March 2022, when statewide primary elections are on the calendar. However, the City Council asked for a special delay until November 2022.

The entire Wake County Senate delegation opposed Council's action, but a special bill has gone to Governor Cooper.

We need volunteers who can help collect signatures from registered voters in Raleigh to give us the opportunity to call a Special Election under the City Charter’s Recall Rules.
