Visions On The Move
Just a year ago in September 2020, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina granted a motion for preliminary injunction against the North Carolina State Board of Elections (“NCSBOE”), ordering them to make their Absentee Voting Program accessible to voters with disabilities by the November 2020 election.

“North Carolina showed its commitment to advancing the rights of citizens with disabilities with this ruling in 2020, but there is so much more work to be done,” stated Carolyn Marshall Covington, Founder of Insightful Visionaries. “The Visions on the Move fund will help us move forward with better protections for blind and visually impaired voters like me, as well as people with all types of disabilities. I am happy to help lead a path from NC to DC and beyond to fight for an inclusive democracy where everyone has the same right of access to the polls when it’s time to vote.”
