[Note: This information is a direct quote from the NC Board of Elections website: https://www.ncsbe.gov/Voting-Options/One-Stop-Early-Voting.] (emphasis added by bold)
“Persons who are not registered in a county may register at one-stop sites (early voting sites) during the early voting period. Upon completion of registration, the newly-registered voter can immediately vote at that same one-stop site. This process is known as same-day registration.
Same-day registrants must attest to their eligibility and provide proof of residence. A voter attests to her eligibility by completing a Voter Registration Application and affixing his/her signature. Knowingly attesting to false information is a Class One felony. After the voter's attestation, he/she must prove his/her residence by presenting any one of the following showing his/her current name and current address:

TRUMP CROSSING THE DELAWARE!
Take a knee...
Written by Ted Nugent
Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. Hold a musket ball in your
Fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two.
There won't be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so
Just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get a real Experience.
Then, take a knee on the beach in Normandy where man after American man
Stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces, the
Very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers most had were the
Dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.
Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. From Khe Sanh to
Saigon, anywhere will do. Americans died in all those jungles. There was no
Playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag they
Represented. When they came home, they were protested as well, and spit on
For reasons only cowards know.
Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree
Heat. Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress. Your number won't be
Printed on it unless your number is up! You'll need to stay hydrated but
There won't be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You're on your Own.
There are a lot of places to take a knee where Americans have given their
Lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought
As a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the memories of those who
Bled for the very freedoms you have. That's what the red stripes mean. It
Represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of it defending your Liberty.
While you're on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on a
Manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of
Ground taken, but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering
Forests and bitter cold mountains, every inch marked by an American life
Lost serving that flag you protest.
No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans, just American men and
Women, delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us,
Blazing a path so you would have the right to "take a knee." You haven't
Any inkling of what it took to get you where you are, but your "protest" is
Duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of real heroes, it
Serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for those who chose to
Defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your jersey is Retired.
If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on
Sunday and we'll both kneel before Almighty God. We'll thank Him for
Preserving this country for as long as He has We'll beg forgiveness for our
Ingratitude for all He has provided us. We'll appeal to Him for
Understanding and wisdom. We'll pray for liberty and justice for all,
Because He is the one who provides those things. But there will be no
Protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His
Continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the
Brave. It goes like this,
GOD BLESS AMERICA
VOTE IN 2018! VOTE IN 2018! VOTE IN 2018!
I know many already appreciate the importance of increasing voter turnout among conservatives for the Fall Election. It is clearly an imperative. BUT - the data from 2016 tells us there is something even more important than just getting them to the polls. THEY MUST VOTE UP AND DOWN THE BALLOT!
Did you know that of those who cast a ballot in November 2016:
28,076 did not cast a vote for US President.
58,626 did not cast a vote for Governor.
78,507 did not cast a vote for US Senator.
150,106 did not cast a vote for Lt. Governor.
187,015 did not cast a vote for Attorney General.
226,323 did not cast a vote for Ag Commissioner.
229,718 did not cast a vote for Labor Commissioner.
238,364 did not cast a vote for Secretary of State.
251,954 did not cast a vote for Supt of Public Instruction.
256,810 did not cast a vote for State Auditor.
263,846 did not cast a vote for Commissioner of Insurance.
266,856 did not cast a vote for State Treasurer.
Over 300,000 did not cast a vote for Court of Appeals seats.
Over 800,000 did not cast a vote for Supreme Court Justice!
And we wonder why Bob Edmunds lost. It wasn't just ballot placement. How many candidates, constitutional amendments and other ballot initiatives, or even control of one or both houses of the Legislature may fall victim to the same voter performance next time even if we succeed in getting them to the polls? Clearly there is far more to be done.
Thanks to Major Dave Goetze

PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON,
JAILED IN TURKEY!
The North Carolina House has formally asked the Turkish government to release a North Carolina-based pastor from a prison there, saying he's been unfairly charged and detained on accusations of spying or aiding terror groups.
The chamber voted unanimously Wednesday night on a resolution coming to the aid of Andrew Brunson, who is from Black Mountain and has been living in Turkey for more than 20 years as a Christian missionary. Brunson was formally arrested following a 2016 coup attempt in Turkey and wasn't formally indicted until earlier this year.
U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis — the former state House speaker — has strongly pressed for Brunson's release. Tillis visited him in prison and in May attended his trial, which is adjourned until July.
Resolution proponents told colleagues it was right to support Brunson in the name of religious freedom, due process and an independent judiciary. From IslandPacket.com
