Order adds Sunday early voting in six counties in the 3rd Congressional District

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Exercising her statutory emergency powers, State Board Executive Director Karen Brinson Bell on Saturday issued an order mandating one-stop early voting hours on Sunday in the following 3rd Congressional District counties affected by Hurricane Dorian:







In each of these counties, early voting, including same-day registration, will be available from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday (September 8) at the county board of elections office only.

The other 11 counties in the 3rd Congressional District are holding voting hours today (Saturday, September 7). See Friday’s press release.

State law provides that the executive director, as the chief state elections official, may exercise emergency powers to conduct an election in districts where the normal schedule has been disrupted by a natural disaster. G.S. § 163A-750(a)(1).

Election Day in the 3rd Congressional District is Tuesday, September 10. Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
