New Hanover Elections Board votes to extend early voting hours
7/17/14–The New Hanover County Board of Elections approved additional evening hours for early voting.
The move means voters should be able to cast ballots between 8am and 8pm in the 10 days leading up to the November general election.
In exchange for the extended hours, the county’s four satellite locations will not open until 7 days before Election Day.
Final approval of this plan must be given by the State Board of Elections.
