NHC Board of Elections to hold open house

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The NHC Board of Elections will hold an open house, which will serve as a question and answer, meet and greet session Wednesday night.

Officials will be addressing several topics, as well as some big changes happening this year, including polling locations.

The board of elections has three new board members this year. One change happening with the election process this year, that they've implemented, is change in venues.

Here's a list of the changes in Carolina Beach and Wilmington:

  • Voting that happens normally in Carolina Beach Town Hall, in the police training room and the recreation center, will now be in the recreation center only.

  • W25, or CFCC's big center, will now be in the G building, which is on Front St.

  • W24, UNCW's Warwick Center location, will now be at the Madeliene Suite in Wagoner Hall.

  • Winter Park Presbyterian Church will change to the Olli Center at UNCW.

  • The Mount Olive AME Church location will now be at the MLK Center.

  • Lake Forest Inc. is now at the Spencer Building, which is owned by the NHC Board of Education.

  • And finally, the Shrine Club on College Rd. will be at the Myrtle Grove Library.

NHC Board of Elections Director Marvin McFadyen says they are renting fewer private facilities as polling places, because of certain restrictions that come along with the private locations, such as restrictions against electioneering and campaigning.

McFadyen adds that it's important to consider coming out to Wednesday's open house to learn about these changes, as well as knowing what makes you eligible or ineligible to vote in this year's municipal elections.

The open house is happening from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Andre Mallette Training Center at the Government Center.

Remember, one stop voting begins this Thursday and runs through Nov. 2, 2013. Election night is Nov. 5.
