North Carolina law requires newspapers accepting political ads to get and maintain certain paperwork.  political-ad-paperwork  In a nutshell, the law requires written authorization for each payment.  Payment must be in a verifiable form (i.e. not cash), and the paper must make those authorizations available for inspection by the public during regular business hours for two years.  The NC Board of Elections has created a form that collects much more information.  Instead, use of this form will comply with the statute without providing the public more intrusion into newspaper operations than is required by law.  statements-of-media-outlets
