Abstract:
In two months, NC citizens will vote between Harvey Gantt and Jesse Helms for US Senate. 72 people from the areas which had the highest number of undecided voters were polled. Most of these voters want a senator who is strong on environmental and educational issues. Gantt is that candidate, but based on responses, his message is not reaching those voters.

Abstract:
European election observers observed the voting process in the Triangle on Tuesday. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which is supported by the United Nations and of which the United States is a member, deployed the monitors. The officials noted that the election activities they witnessed in Wake County were free of voter fraud and tampering, but also complicated. They enjoyed some parts of the process, but had harsh criticisms for the impact of outside spending and our two-party system.

Abstract:
Democrats did not do well in the 2012 elections in North Carolina. The reasons for the likely Republican victories began two years ago. The Republicans' 2010 victory happened as a national census ensured newly drawn voting districts, and from the large increase in campaign donations in support of Republicans. With the money and control of the map, Republicans easily kept control of state politics.

Abstract:
The number of Latinos registered to vote in the state has doubled since 2008 and Latinos have the potential to sway the election in North Carolina. Overall, the Latino voter bloc is young, but is not always politically engaged. Various reasons prevent participation in the election and some Latinos believe Obama has not kept his promises. Voting groups are still encouraging Latinos to vote and be involved as they will likely be the face of the state in the future according to demographic predictions.

Abstract:
A panel of three federal judges will meet to determine if North Carolina’s May 6 primary will be held. A lawsuit was recently filed asking for a delay so the courts or legislature can redraw the state’s legislative district boundaries. Redrawing the lines could allow for more Republicans to win elections and the disenfranchisement of black voters by diluting their political power.
