Election experience counts. A voting activist since 2011, I’ve been trained by attending BOE meetings for determining voting locations, certifications and absentee ballot reviews. I worked directly with Charlie Collicutt and his staff learning their systems. I gained national recognition registering 4,100 high school and college students; a model used throughout the state by the League of Women Voters. I’ve worked directly with both parties’ candidates organizing public forums. During COVID shutdown, I advised the BOE of need to transfer nonresidents from Friends Home and Well-spring precincts. It’s a critical midterm election year. I am ready to serve Guilford County.
