Board of Elections Keeps Early Voting Downtown and Approves 4 Sites

I’m the chair of the Board of Elections and wanted to clarify some of the discussion that has gone on about early voting:

BOE Axes the Student Vote...in 45 Minutes

Today, the Orange County Board of Elections voted to take early voting away from the UNC Campus.  The early voting site at Seymour Senior Center would remain unchanged, but the second early voting site would be moved from the Morehead Planetarium to the Quik-E-Mart in University Square.  While this may not seem like a big deal, moving the UNC student body's primary voting site off campus is the wrong thing to do.  Below is the email from Town Manager Roger Stancil:

Early Voting in Orange County

In fall 2010, more than 900,000 people voted prior to Election Day in North Carolina. Our state currently allows local counties to provide early voting sites for periods up to three weeks before Election Day. Here in Orange County, early voting is particularly popular. On the final days of early voting in 2010, the line at Morehead Planetarium snaked  through the planetarium, down the stairs and across the quad as professors, residents and students lined up to vote.
