Orange County

This Week In Orange Politics: September 21-27

Though most of the Orange County's public bodies will be taking a break this week, the Chapel Hill Town Council will meet tonight to review a concept plan for new development on Rosemary Street and discuss several LUMO changes and special use permits.

Election season is also in the full swing. Be sure to join us Sunday night for our forum with Hillsborough Town Board candidates and check out our calendar for the list of other forums this week.

This Week in Orange Politics: September 14-19

It'll be a busy week across Orange County this week. The Carrboro Alderfolks will discuss bicycle-friendliness and the Lloyd Farm propery mediation process, while the Chapel Hill Town Council will get an update on UNC-related development. Both school boards will review the student performance data recently released by the state, while the Hillsborough Town Board will get an update on the Colonial Inn. The county commmissioners will meet with the Mebane City Council on public transportation and the Buckhorn EDD, and will get an update on Southern Branch Library in a serperate meeting.

CHALT and the Sierra Club/Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce/WCHL will hold candidate forums for Chapel Hill candidates.

This Week in Orange Politics: September 7-13

Nearing the end of the summer break and after the long Labor Day holiday weekend, only a couple of local governing boards will meet this week. Both the county commissioners and the Carrboro Board of Alderpersons will hold work sessions.

This Week in Orange Politics: August 30-September 6

Some of the elected bodies are still on summer hiatus, but the Carrboro Board of Alderpersons, the Orange County Board of Commissioners, and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board are back this week. 

Maintain and Expand Access to Early Voting in Orange County

I've been a strong advocate for early voting locations and hours in Orange County that provide adequate access for all Orange County residents in my time as a student and council member in Chapel Hill. I'm sharing below my open letter to the Board of Elections as they make decisions this week about early voting locations for this fall. Interested in making your voice heard about early voting? They'll be meeting tomorrow (July 21st) at the Board of Elections in Hillsborough at noon to determine early voting hours and locations for this fall. 

Dear Orange County Board of Elections,

 

As you consider potential early voting locations and hours for the 2015 election, I wanted to offer some thoughts and recommendations. As always, thank you for your thoughtful approach to and deliberative process in setting an early voting calendar.
