> Board of Elections Prepares for Municipal Primary
> Durham, N.C. – Durham residents turned out in unprecedented numbers to participate in the 2008 presidential election. During this period, numbers of registered voters soared. While the numbers of voters who participate in the presidential election are considerably higher than any other election period, there are many voters who participate in election periods year round. On Tuesday, October 6, 2009, the Durham County Board of Elections (BOE) will conduct a Municipal Primary. All polling places, except Precinct 26, located in Rougemont, will be open for voting from 6:30a.m. until 7:30p.m.
> Races on the Durham ballot will include City Council Ward 1 and City Council Ward 2. All City of Durham voters are allowed to vote for both the Ward 1 and Ward 2 races. Durham County residents in Precinct 32, located at Neal Middle School, who reside in the City of Raleigh, will vote for the Raleigh Mayor, the Raleigh City Council at Large, and the City Council Ward E seats.
> All registered voters residing in the City of Durham are eligible and encouraged to vote in the upcoming election. Voters who are currently registered do not need to re-register. Citizens who have not registered, or voters who have moved or changed other information since they last voted, must notify the BOE by Friday, September 11, 2009 at 5p.m.
> Voters are reminded that One Stop No Excuse Absentee voting is always an option for voters. One Stop No Excuse Absentee voting allows registered voters in Durham to vote early. Early voters receive the same ballot as those that vote on the specified Election Day. One Stop voters that have moved can update their addresses at the One Stop site. Durham’s One Stop voting site for the upcoming election is located at 706 W. Corporation Street. For One Stop voting hours, visit the 2009 One Stop No Excuse Early Voting Web site.
> Durham voters also have the option to register and vote at the One Stop site. Same day registrants must present proper identification. Voters should note that same day registration is not allowed at precincts on Election Day.
> To learn more information about the upcoming municipal primary or early voting, contact the BOE at 919-560-0700 or visit the Durham County BOE Web site.
