NC Board of Elections encouraging absentee voting

Elections continue throughout the year, with state supreme court affected on June 7.

Absentee voting began last week for the June primary in North Carolina, for 16 congressional districts, including District 9, where Scotland and Robeson Counties now fall. The June primary resulted from a court order to re-draw district lines that had been gerrymandered by race. The State Board of Elections is urging people to vote by mail so that high school graduations and summer vacations don’t keep people from going to the polls. Stand-alone primaries like this one suffer from low voter turnout, yet the state supreme court is another primary race being determined on June 7th.
