If you are interested in being nominated then show up or ask to be nominated if you can not attend on this date. The local board of elections office is a very important office because it is responsible for making sure the election process goes well.

The Edgecombe County Board of Elections is back at full strength.
Dr. Florence Armstrong was sworn in this week as the newest member of the three-person board. She was appointed to fill a vacancy created on the board after former member Shelly Willingham resigned to run for the District 23 seat in the N.C. House.
Candidates for election are not eligible to serve as members of county elections boards.
“We’re glad to have the board back at full strength, and we look forward to working with everyone,” said Jerry Spruell, Edgecombe County elections director.
Armstrong is the lone Democratic member of the county elections board. (Source: Read more)
The DCN received a letter from Rocky Mount Council Andre Knight stating he will seek re-election to Ward 1. See Knight’s letter here. I have read in the Rocky Mount Telegram and seen former Rocky Mount Police Chief John Manley announcing that he will be challenging Knight.
Quincy Robinson and Rev. Roy Gray along with Thomas Wayne Edison all were seeking to be appointed when Bryant turned in her resignation to the board but see what happened here. Bryant decided to not leave the board and will stay on until election time.
Quincy Robinson has verbally said to The DCN he would be seeking to replace Bryant. The DCN asked Rev. Roy Gray was he going to run at election time and he said he was interesting in the new House seat that is currently held by Rep. Joe Pat Tolson.
The DCN has seen information on the internet and read in the local newspapers that Attorney William Solomon Rocky Mount has announced his intentions to file for the NC House 23 seat. The NC House seat now consist of only Edgecombe and Martin Counties. Word on the street is Rev. Roy Gray Tarboro and pastors a church in Martin County will be seeking to replace Rep. Joe Pat Tolson.
The DCN received a message from Deborah Jordan Tarboro that she will be seeking to replace Minister Melvin Muhammad Tarboro City Council Ward 6. Word on the street Muhammad will not be seeking re-election.
The DCN knows all of these folks very well and will be following them very closely.
