The Edgecombe County Board of Elections meeting will be held 5:00 PM in the Edgecombe County Administration Building Board of Elections Office and this is where Edgecombe County Democrats need to be with all of the mess that former Republican Governor Pat McCrory put in place trying to change the make up of the Board of Elections since the Republicans are in majority. The mess was and is to try to limit the power of our current Democratic Governor Roy Cooper.
Meeting date/location changed see Tuesday May 23 below: At 6:00 PM the Edgecombe County Democratic Party is meeting in Rocky Mount on the campus of Edgecombe Community College and during this meeting 3 names will need to be voted upon to be sent to the NC State Democratic Party and 2 names will be chosen to serve on our local Edgecombe County Board of Elections. It would have been good to have the Democratic Party meeting in Tarboro in the Administration Bldg. and we could have went down stairs to the Board of Elections Meetings.
All registered Democrats of Edgecombe County if you are interested in serving with Dr. Florence Arnold Armstrong on the Board of Elections you need to make it known and to attend the meeting on May 16 in Rocky Mount. It would be good if you would go by the Board of Elections meeting in Tarboro.

The Edgecombe County Board of Elections monthly board meeting will be held on Tuesday September 20, 2016 5:00 PM 4th floor in the board of elections office. Please attend so you can hear the report from the actions taken by the North Carolina State Board of Elections during the hearing of the plans presented to them for the One-Stop sites for Edgecombe County.
Since the board is a Republican majority the plan that they voted on was not a majority, the Democratic member Dr. Florence A. Armstrong presented a plan and her plan was approved by the State Board of Elections. There was a teleconference meeting on yesterday to correct a type over.
The Edgecombe County Board of Elections meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 5:00 PM.
I will be attending and requesting that the board update the Edgecombe Board of Elections website because right now it is a hot mess and is not user friendly. For a board of this magnitude it makes no sense that the website has not been updated for several years.

The Edgecombe County Board of Elections met on Tuesday August 16, 2016 5 PM and was one of the most out of control meetings I have attended in quite some time. The board is made up of 2 Republicans a white female, a white male (chair) and 1 Democrat a black female.
The meetings was opened by the members present because the chair arrived a little late.
Public comments are at the beginning of the meeting and it began with Rev. Dr. Thomas L. Walker addressing the board followed by several of us. But the meeting was to vote on early voting sites/hours so the discussion took place during the entire meeting along with the public comments although the public comments were not supposes to have been entertained during the whole meeting. However it was good because it helped with the discussion of the board.
Watch video to see just how ignant this meeting was. Totally out of control. See it for yourself and make your own decision.
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:
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.
Attend the Edgecombe County Board of Elections meeting on Tuesday, August 16, at 5 p.m. where you can make your voice heard in person in favor of a robust 17-day plan for Early Voting. The board meets at 201 St Andrew St., Rm 434, Tarboro 27886. Click here to let us know you’ll be there *and* don’t forget to call and verify the meeting location, date and time before you attend at 252-641-7852.
We just scored a major victory for voting rights in North Carolina. Keep the momentum going – the time to act for Early Voting is now.
