North Carolina Non-Partisan Voter Guide for Health Freedom
Welcome to the North Carolina Voter Guide for Health Freedom!
This guide will help you determine which candidates are most likely to protect your freedom to choose whether or not to vaccine.
Please plan to invest a few minutes to prepare for voting.

Click on your name in the search results
Click SAMPLE BALLOTS and select the one marked GENERAL

Look up each of your candidates on the Voter Guide spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is organized by CONTEST NAME. In addition, you can use the ‘find’ feature by using CONTROL F or COMMAND F and then typing in the name of the candidate.
Read the candidate’s survey responses and comments carefully to determine if you believe he/she will protect our right to choose. You can mark the ones you want to vote for on your sample ballot.
If there is no response listed for one or more of your candidates, we encourage you to contact them and ask for their stance. Please forward any response you get to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Voter Guide Sources
This health freedom voter guide draws candidate information from 3 sources:
HEAL NC activists' contact with NC candidates
Candidate survey mailed to candidates by PAVE (People Advocating Vaccine Education)
An email survey sent to candidates by Stand for Health Freedom (SHF)
The survey questions asked by each of these 3 entities are outlined below.
HEAL NC Activist Outreach
HEAL NC activists reached out to the candidates via email or social media asking if the candidate supports medical freedom. The following question was suggested by HEAL NC, though activists were encouraged to personalize this question.
I want the freedom to accept or reject vaccination for myself and my minor children without penalty. The state or federal government cannot force me or my minor children to be vaccinated without my express permission. The state and federal government cannot restrict my activities should I decline a vaccination. Are you willing to support my right to accept or reject vaccination and protect me from coercive measures?
Thank you in advance for your time.
PAVE mailed a survey to NC candidates along with a return postcard. The postcard returned by candidates said the following:
Thank you for your response on whether parents can exercise their religious freedom under the NC and US Constitution!
Candidate Name: _________________________________
Yes, I support a parent’s right to decide what is best for the well-being of their children and families
