NASHVILLE — The Nash County Board of Elections has launched a new website for November’s general election.
The website will give the voters of Nash County a single, easy-to-remember location to find voting options for the upcoming presidential election, said county Elections Director John Kearney.
“The website was designed to be a one-stop shop for voters seeking information about the upcoming election,” Kearney said. “The site has easy-to-navigate buttons and minimal text.”
The new website can be found at www.NashVotes2020.com and includes information on mail-in voting, early voting and Election Day voting.
That information includes that any registered voter in Nash County can request a mail-in ballot by visiting the N.C. Absentee Ballot Request Portal. No special circumstance or reason is needed to vote a mail-in absentee ballot in North Carolina. Deadline to request an absentee ballot is 5 p.m. Oct. 27. If mailing a request, include enough time for the request to be received by the deadline.
Early voting for the Nov. 3 general election will begin Oct. 15 and end on Oct. 31. The schedule is set Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m.
The for locations for early voting are: Nash County Agriculture Center, 1006 Eastern Ave. in Nashville; the Mount Pleasant Community Building, 7637 Harris Road near Bailey; the old Gateway Partnership building across from Braswell Memorial Library at 427 Falls Road in Rocky Mount and the old Trade-It building next to Olive Garden at 1150 N. Wesleyan Blvd. in Rocky Mount.
Voting sites will be open 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 3. Everyone must go to their assigned polling place to cast a ballot on Election Day.
Anyone who votes in another location may be asked to vote a provisional ballot. The new website has a list of Nash County’s polling places.
Prospective voters can search their name through the State Board of Elections website by using the voter lookup tool to find their polling place and view their sample ballot and jurisdictions.
Voters seeking more information can still visit the Board of Elections’ main website.
