Guest Blogged by John Gideon of North Carolina voters who live in predominately black neighborhoods are the target of robo-calls and a mailing campaign, by a national non-profit called "Women's Voices; Women Vote", that may result in many voters being disenfranchised. The calls warn voters, whether registered or not, that they cannot vote until they fill-out the information in a packet they will receive in the mail. The packet contains a voter registration form. What the call and the information in the packet don't tell the voter is that it is too late to register to vote in the primary and that if the recipient is already registered they don't have any concerns. This same scheme has been used in other states prior to their primary elections. It is time that legislation be written and passed that will make these schemes illegal....
