Attend Monthly Board of Elections Meetings

Having one or more League members at the monthly meetings of the county Boards of Elections is easy. Meetings are open to the public and Boards are pleased to have observers. There is a time for public comment, but it is also fine just to go listen. You will learn a great deal about how the Board does its work of making elections fair, secure, and accessible. And developing an ongoing relationship between the local Board and the local League is a excellent foundation for substantive two-way communication. If you are interested in volunteering to attend BOE meetings, contact Krishna Mondal

  • The Chatham team is well-established but would be delighted to have other members join us to 'learn the ropes.'
    • The Chatham Board meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 5:30pm at the Board office (80 East St # D, Pittsboro, NC 27312) Website
  • In Orange and Durham, it would be great if a League member brought a friend to share the fun!
    • The Orange Board meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 4pm at the Board office (208 S Cameron St, Hillsborough, NC 27278) Website
    • The Durham Board typically meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 5pm. Location and meeting time occasionally vary; information is available on their website.

It is critical to attend the local boards of election meetings to advocate for the following issues:

  1. Protect Sunday voting, with a special emphasis on religious accommodation. Orthodox Jews will not drive or participate in a Saturday voting day, so for those who work, Sunday is the only day for them to vote during early voting.
  2. Ensure that locations for early voting are easy for college students, the elderly, rural citizens, etc. to use. Ensure that parking is available. Consider the needs of the handicapped.
  3. Consider geographical location. How many miles and how long will it take for a person to get to the nearest early voting sites?

The League of Women Voters is dedicated to keeping the polls open and accessible to all citizens. View the statement that the League of Women Voters of NC made at the July 28, 2019 meeting of the NC State Board of Elections regarding the state and county processes for certifying and purchasing voting machines.. We work to protect voting rights at the both the state and federal level.
