OK . . so go VOTE already . . .

There was a time when people had to be sure to mark their calendar to remind them of Election Day . . . MAY 2nd, BTW; figure out when the best time would be to go to the polls; in the morning on the way to work, after work, stand in long lines during the rush periods, fitting into a busy schedule, etc. And worse, would be when you spent so much time reading about the candidates and wanting to be sure that your vote counted, and then for a variety of reasons, you missed the chance the vote. Or, if you knew you would not be in town on election day, you could request an absentee ballot and go through that arduous process of the chance of having your voting voice heard.

A few years ago, the Dare County Elections Board started the No Excue One-Stop Absentee Voting program. The one-stop voting process permits voting in person at the Elections Office beginning on the Thursday after the registration deadline, but no later than 1:00 P.M. on Saturday before the election, for voters who meet the registration requirements.

It's quick, it's easy, and it's convenient. There are three locations in Dare County where voters can cast their ballot. Now there is no excuse for any voter not to express their choice.
