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.

 

Lavelle Running for Re-Election in Carrboro, Parker Running for Council in Chapel Hill

With election filing under a month away, announcements are coming in from local candidates. Just this morning, Carrboro mayor Lydia Lavelle announced she will be seeking re-election. Earlier this week, Michael Parker, a health care consultant and Chapel Hill Planning Commission member, announced he will run for Chapel Hill Town Council this fall. (Parker also applied for the seat vacated by former Council member Matt Czajkowski.)

Chapel Hill Town Council members Lee Storrow and Donna Bell confirmed earlier this year that they will also seek re-election. Council member Jim Ward has also indicated he will likely seek re-election as well.

Have you heard of any other potential candidates or any other candidates who are seeking office this year? Or is there anyone you would like to see run? Let us know in the comments.
