Raleigh – The NCDP Ninth Congressional District will host a “Rally for Fair Elections” on February 2, 2019, at Elizabethtown Elementary School in Elizabethtown, N.C. (Bladen County). Doors will open at 11:30 am and the rally will end by 2:30 pm. The rally is designed to engage and empower voters to support the completion of the State Board of Elections investigation into Republican election fraud efforts in NC-09.

“What is more American than demanding fair elections for every North Carolina voter,” NCDP 9th Congressional District Chair Cynthia L. Wallace asked. “This rally will provide an opportunity for the voices to be heard from North Carolinians who believe voters deserve to have full confidence in our election process in NC.”

The rally will feature local elected officials, including Senator Kirk deViere (SD-19), Representative Chaz Beasley (HD-92), Red Springs Town Councilwoman Caroline Sumpter, and Richmond County Commissioner Tavares Bostic; speakers from the North Carolina Democratic Party, including NCDP Chairman Wayne Goodwin, first Vice Chair Bobbie Richardson, and NCDP Ninth Congressional District Chair Cynthia L. Wallace; non-partisan groups including the Southern Coalition for Social Justice; victims of Bladen County voter election fraud; and many others.

“We need to get to the bottom of this Republican electoral fraud scheme, and that includes hearing from the people of Bladen county who were the most hurt by Mark Harris’ campaign,” NCDP Chairman Wayne Goodwin said.
