When I mentioned to a woman with a pre-teen daughter that I didn’t know why Durham County was proposing Early Voting hours until 7:30 pm every day except Monday, October 31, when locations would close at 5:30, she said, “That’s Halloween.” Ah hah! So now, while we wait for approval of the plan by the state Board of Elections, it’s a simpler message: The Durham County BOE hopes to stay open till 7:30 every day except Halloween.
Volunteers are working together and in the community. Our best stories come from the our volunteers and organizers...
Stories of citizens who thought they could never vote becoming registered voters.
Stories of people who thought they would be unable to vote because of lack of ID.
Stories of people being truly grateful for our information.
Stories of volunteers making new friends or encountering friends they haven't seen in years!
Stories of humor & joy from all the different people we encounter.
Stories of patience, kindness, and acceptance.
Please take a minute to tell us a story!
