Investigation Against Neighbors on Call and North Carolina Democratic Party Underway | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the John Locke Foundation. The author of this post is Jim Stirling.

    The North Carolina State Board of Elections has launched a formal investigation into "Neighbors on Call," a local PAC working with Democratic candidates in key legislative elections. Earlier this week, the Civitas Center for Public Integrity filed a complaint regarding this PAC's access to the state Democratic Party's canvassing data.

    The Democratic party canvassing efforts, run through a company called NGP Van, INC., has a subscription fee of $10,000 a month, according to FEC reports. This service alone exceeds North Carolina's contribution limit of $5,600 that a standard PAC can give or receive from a party committee.

    Neighbors on Call has been heavily active within Democratic circles for years. They shared a stage with Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez and were recognized by local Democratic executive committees during their 2021 conventions for their assistance in canvassing efforts "to expand [the] volunteer base and engage more democrats."


    All parties involved have been informed of the filed report and await further investigation from the State Board of Elections.
