CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Hillary Clinton is trying to develop a sense of urgency in her voters.

“Everybody says every election is important,” she told supporters at a rally in Charlotte on Thursday. “And I happen to believe that.”

It was a rally designated as a voter registration event – and there were people working the crowd, looking for those not yet registered – but most of the people there already were.

Clinton emphasized their duty to vote in a state that she painted as having a legislature and governor hostile to the idea.

“North Carolina, under this governor and state legislature, are trying to restrict people’s right to vote,” she said. “This has been a concentrated effort to undermine people’s rights.”

Bob Buckley was on the campus of Johnson C. Smith University when Clinton spoke and has the story of her appeals to voters there.
