The time is now to fight for safe and secure voting options in Alamance this fall.

Counties have been asked to provide their 2020 General Election Early Voting plans to the N.C. State Board of Elections in July. As a result, the Alamance County Board of Elections may discuss the county’s Early Voting hours and locations at their next meeting, coming up on¬†Tuesday, June 9, at 2¬†p.m.¬†Due to COVID-19, the meeting will be held by¬†telephone. The public will be allowed to listen in. Here’s how to connect on Tuesday:

Given the new realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, without a robust Early Voting plan, lines at the polls could be longer than usual, deterring voter participation and potentially endangering voters‚Äô health. Strong Early Voting plans, with weekend voting hours and sites that work for your community, are the key to making sure this year’s elections run more smoothly.

During the public comment period, take the time to¬†remind the board of elections that you’d like to see:

  • a convenient voting location¬†for young voters¬†in the surrounding community;
  • good satellite voting locations that can serve underrepresented voters, including communities of color;
  • robust weekend voting hours over the 17-day period, including multiple Saturdays; and
  • where possible, larger voting centers¬†that will allow voters and poll workers¬†to safely distance.

To help, we’ve put together a handy Early Voting Advocacy Toolkit and Early Voting Advocacy Report Form so that you can get even more valuable information on how¬†to advocate for good voting options and let us know how the meeting¬†went.

And don’t forget, meeting times and dates can change quickly. Call the Alamance¬†County Board of Elections¬†to confirm the meeting (or if you have problems accessing the meeting via telephone)¬†at (336) 570-6755.

Your actions this month could make a big¬†difference for good voting options during this fall’s¬†high turnout election.
