NC CSE Precinct Walk Project Tops Over 15,000 Homes Visited In Old-Fashioned Door-To-Door Voter Education

North Carolina– North Carolina CSE and activists have been “Walking the Precincts” in NC’s 8th Congressional and key state legislative districts to educate voters on important election year issues. For the two weeks ending Thursday, October 26, activists visited 15,495 homes delivering CSE’s message of antitrust reform to voters before election day. Fifty-nine CSE activists conducted these precinct walks in Carbarrus, Alexander, Yancey, Alamance, Forsyth, Union, McDowell and Caswell counties. As of October 31, 2000, roadways and intersections have been blanketed with special CSE signs in Halloween orange and black that reads “Hey Mike Easley STOP government sponsored lawsuits!”

Good Old Fashioned Grassroots Education — As the premier grassroots organization in the state, NC CSE has delivered the antitrust message to each home during the precinct walks. Educational literature included CSE’s antitrust tri-fold which depicts how government sponsored lawsuits are bad for the NC’s economy and for consumers, antitrust postcards that exhort Attorney General Mike Easley to drop the state’s antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft Corporation, and bumper stickers that read “A Lawsuit a Day Keeps Innovation at Bay.” NC CSE and activists will continue the precinct walks to educate voters with the antitrust message until election day.
