Attend The Edgecombe County Board of Elections Meeting On Tuesday August 16


Curmilus–

On August 16, at 5 p.m., the Edgecombe County Board of Elections will meet to adopt a 17-day Early Voting plan for the November 2016 General Election. Prompted by the new voting ruling expanding Early Voting by seven additional days, this meeting will determine your final options to vote early and whether the plan will mean longer lines and more confusion on Election Day. The board will decide:

  • whether to provide good satellite voting locations that serve underrepresented voters throughout the 17-day Early Voting period, including young voters and voters of color; and
  • whether to adopt strong evening and weekend hours over the 17-day Early Voting period, including afternoon hours for at least one Sunday.

This is your last chance to take action for Early Voting – there are two ways to do it:

STEP #1: CONTACT YOUR COUNTY BOE

Now’s the time to contact your Edgecombe County Board of Elections members and ask them to create Early Voting plans that include polling hours and locations that work for all members of your community during the 17-day Early Voting period.
