One-stop early voting continues this week across North Carolina, ahead of next week’s municipal elections. In Montgomery County, the early voting takes place at a special polling place set up in the Montgomery County Courthouse, which also houses the Board of Elections office for the county.
Early voting is available each day this week from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and there will be a final session Sat., Nov. 1, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
There are special accommodations to allow physically challenged voters to complete their ballot in their vehicles. To access the service, drivers can park in the specially-designated space along the S. Main St. side of the courthouse during voting hours, and a Board of Elections staff member will come out to assist.
More information is available from the Board of Elections office at 572-2024.
