NC NAACP Call on Voters to Persevere in the Face of State Election Board Order to Use Paper Poll Books
DURHAM - Early this morning, the North Carolina State Board of Elections instructed the Durham County Board of Elections to use paper poll books instead of electronic poll books. This abrupt change led to some voters being turned away from certain precincts this morning and in some precincts throughout the day. Our understanding is that all precincts now have all the supplies needed to function with paper poll books and we are calling on all Durham voters to persevere in voting. If you are in line, stay in line. Do not leave without casting a ballot. If you left, come back and vote!
