Early Voting

No Early Voting Today Saturday October 27, 2018.t It looks like it is open today by reading this on the Board of Elections page so to me this is misleading. I just contacted the board and confirmed they are not opened today because they can only be open a certain amount of hours. I knew that because I used to attend the meetings regularly. But this is crazy and always have been because today may been the only day that some folk could early vote due to their work schedule or other. 

Early voting is from Wednesday, October 17th through Saturday, November 3rd. Monday – Friday 7 am – 7 pm, and Sat. Nov. 3rd 8 am – 1 pm.

There are three early voting locations:

Edgecombe County Administration Building – Auditorium
201 St. Andrew St. – Tarboro, NC 27886

Department of Social Service
301 S. Fairview Rd. – Rocky Mount, NC 27801

Judge blocks Ohio from limiting early voting Preliminary injunction restores 35-day period – The Blade

COLUMBUS — Ohio cannot enforce a new state law for this election that reduced the number of days available for voters to cast absentee ballots by mail or in person, a federal judge ordered today.

U.S. District Court Judge Peter C. Economus granted a preliminary injunction sought by the NAACP, the League of Women Voters of Ohio, and a group of African American ministers that effectively restores the full 35 days of early voting prior to the Nov. 4 general election.

He found that the law is likely unconstitutional even though the state argued that its absentee voting options are more liberal than most states in the nation. His order requires Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican, to add more evening voting hours and an additional Sunday to the hours he previously had set through a directive.  (Source: Read more)

Early Voting Began Yesterday – Did You Know? Did You Vote? Are You Going To Early Vote? Or Will You Vote On Election Day May 6, 2014?

Early voting began yesterday and I hear some folks talking about a low turnout in some areas. Well this was just the first day. Some folks didn’t know or forgot about it. But guess what, folks will hear about it today and definitely this weekend when they go to the church and the club because I hope both places and others will announce it. There should be advertisements on the local radio and tv stations.

So now that you have read it here, now tell family and friends they can EARLY VOTE in Edgecombe/Nash Counties and across the state. For Edgecombe/Nash Counties see the location and time in a related post.

Elections officials prepare for runoff voting – Rocky Mount Telegram

Twin Counties elections officials are gearing up for Tuesday’s runoff primary election, which will determine the winners of a number of Republican and Democratic races that weren’t decided during the May 8 primary.

The elections were requested by second-place vote-getters in races where the top vote-getter did not receive more than 40 percent of the vote. Only the top-two vote getters compete in the runoff primary. (More)
