We see opportunities in several issue areas in which North Carolina could implement voter-centric reforms. North Carolina enacted several temporary reforms in 2020, such as establishing a cure process and a semi-permanent absentee voter list, and allowing ballots postmarked by election day. It can continue to strengthen its election system by making these permanent. By passing legislation to guarantee prepaid postage and make a wider range of ballot return options a permanent fixture, North Carolina can further strengthen its electoral system. As always, we stress that policy is important, but it is just as important that it is implemented well.
