THREE FROM WESTERN NC GIVEN LEADERSHIP ROLES ON BIDEN FOR PRESIDENT COUNCIL
On Friday, the campaign released a video message to North Carolina voters, urging them to make a plan to vote early.
“We have been waiting for this moment for nearly four years: the chance to vote for a new president and a brighter future for our country. And you have a few easy and convenient ways to vote early and make sure your voice is heard. So let’s make a plan,” says Kamala Harris in the video. “First, vote-by-mail is already underway...You can also vote early in-person, starting October 15th. Either way, you’ll be one of the first voters to move our country forward.”
This is the first time someone from the campaign has traveled to the western North Carolina area this election. Harris was in Raleigh on Sept. 28 to speak about the Supreme Court and the Affordable Care Act as well as host a “Shop Talk meets Sister to Sister” event with the Black community.
