Join in with citizens all over the country on Wednesday, November 13 for a National Day of Action to Secure Our Vote. We’re encouraging everyone in the area to participate in a coordinated phone blitz during the day today, to tell our senators that our states and localities need funding to secure our elections.

Call NC Senators Tillis and Burr and urge them to support passage of $600 million in funding by November 21 to secure our elections with the House of Representative’s strong accountability language included. We’re asking them to add this specific funding and report language to the continuing resolution to keep the government open. 

Call them directly at the numbers below. Or call the “Secure Our Vote” hotline at 833-413-5906, where you’ll be given talking points before being connected to the Capitol Switchboard. For more background, check out the sample letter here. Or visit

Sen. Burr: (202) 224-3154
Sen. Tillis (202) 224-6342

Election security officials warn that too many states and localities have vulnerable election systems, so numerous organizations including Public Citizen, Common Cause, People for the American Way, the League of Women Voters, and over a dozen more, have come together for this National Day of Action to Secure our Vote.
