Notice Wayne County Voters

Dear Wayne County Supporters,

Sorry for the short notice, but there will be an important meeting of the Wayne County Board of Elections on Tuesday, June 10, at 9:00 AM at the Board of Elections office located at 209 S. William St. in Goldsboro. We need you there!

The 3-member board (2 Republicans, 1 Democrat) will be discussing Wayne County's early voting plan for the November election. The public can attend the meeting and provide input about potential locations for early voting sites, evening and weekend voting hours, and more.

If you can attend the meeting or can help advocate for a good early voting plan, please contact Sylvia Barnes, President, Wayne County NAACP at 919-273-3632 or

From October 23 to November 1, 2014, Wayne County is required by law to open enough voting sites and hours to total up to at least 337 hours of early voting (based on what it provided in 2010). The only way the county can provide less time is to get a "waiver" from the State Board of Elections which requires a unanimous vote by every member of both the county and state elections boards.  

Democracy North Carolina encourages local advocates to push for strong early voting plans, including hours on both Saturdays at all the early voting locations and possibly on Sunday, too, if you have support of a board member. Evening hours also allow people to vote after the work day. Click here for a guide to learn more about early voting plans.  

Show up and show your support for a strong early voting plan for your county!
