North Carolina citizens have a right to public institutions that are not corrupt and elections free from fraud.

We promote integrity in government by investigating possible unethical behavior, ranging from acts of corruption by local government officials to the establishment of political slush funds through lawsuits or acts of coercion against those with business before the government. We also guard against bureaucratic attempts to bypass laws by observing the regulatory process, including the North Carolina Rules Review Commission proceedings, and monitoring non-elected government boards’ actions.

We promote election integrity by advocating for election law reforms and investigating possible violations of election laws or other misconduct by election officials, campaigns, or political groups.

We also serve as a source of reliable information and data to the public. Our Mapping the Left site shows the magnitude of the radical left’s infrastructure in North Carolina. At Carolina Elections, we update weekly voter registration changes and, through Vote Tracker, provide timely and valuable data on early and absentee voters. Finally, our Election Court Blotter provides reviews and original documents on significant court cases that affect elections in North Carolina.
