NC SOS Raises Alarm With Signature Verification Thoughts


With a number of high-profile races taking part across the United States, North Carolina finds itself in a controversial situation after Elaine Marshall (D)the North Carolina Secretary of State, was questioned on her thoughts regarding mail-in-balloting.

When discussing mail-in-balloting, Marshall commented that “there’s a movement to do what’s called signature matching, which has not been approved in North Carolina, and it is suspect by authorities in signature matters.” The Secretary of State added that “they really have no basis in North Carolina” because “you can sign up online, and it says that you can use a stylus to sign online, you can sign with something not docusign… you can use a scribble on the screen, you can use a pen… that, to me, means that just about any signature is gonna have to count.
