Democracy NC


Democracy NC has been around since 1991 first as Democracy South. A project of the left-wing Institute for Southern Studies (ISS), Democracy NC’s director is Bob Hall, who worked for ISS for 25 years. As the leader of Democracy NC, Hall, in his behind-the-scenes work for the State Board of Elections, played a big role in shaping North Carolina’s election legislation, policies and state bureaucracy into the nation’s most liberal – and confusing – election system. Democracy NC is also one of Blueprint NC’s founding members and is probably the leading liberal get-out-the-vote organization in the state.
