Town of Princeville, the Oldest Town Chartered By Blacks in America, will have a meeting on Monday night at 7:00 p.m. at the County’s Administration Building, in Tarboro – where you pay your water bill, upstairs.
I have seen several posts and I shared one about folk saying voting machines will give Trump your vote when voting for Hillary. Don’t know it to be true in other counties but what I do know there has not been anything about it happening in Edgecombe County.
There has been a complaint about literature left in a voting both. Folk that is a not legal. Whatever you take in don’t leave it.
I will let you know about any issues that has been reported to the Edgecombe County Board Of Elections Office if I receive an update.

More votes were cast at the Nash County one-stop site than any other polling place in North Carolina on the first day of early voting Thursday, according to state election officials.
In all, 2,113 voters cast their ballots at the Nashville location. Only sites in urban areas of Wake and Mecklenburg counties came close.
The best news is there was little wait time for Nash County voters, said John Kearney, the county’s elections director.
When the line was at its longest Thursday in Nashville, voters only had to wait 20 minutes to get their ballots. That’s compared to a location in Charlotte where some people waited in line for more than two hours.
By Friday, the line was down to a steady stream with voters not having to wait more than a minute or so and many walking right up to get their ballots.
Critics said the higher turnout and longer lines across the state were due to the Republican-controlled state and county elections boards not extending early voting in Democratic-heavy areas.
There is one early voting site in Nash County this week. The remaining sites will open later in the month.
The open site is at the Nash County Agriculture Center on Eastern Avenue in Nashville, where times are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.
Beginning Oct. 27 and running through Nov. 5, three other sites will be open at Braswell Memorial Library on Grace Street in Rocky Mount, the Spring Hope Community Building and the Mt. Pleasant Community Building in Bailey. Hours for all three locations will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.
No polls will operate on Sundays.
One-stop locations allow voters to register and vote at the same time. The deadline to vote on Election Day, Nov. 8, has passed. (Rocky Mount Telegram)
