One stop early voting for the November General Election starts next week at the Warren County Board of Elections.

Voting dates and hours are as follows: Oct. 17-19, 22-26, 29-Nov. 2, 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.; and Nov. 3, 7 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Elections Director Debbie Formyduval said that voters should plan for a little extra time in voting due to the six state Constitutional amendments on the ballot this year. Voters will be voting either for or against the following Constitutional amendments:

  • protecting the right of the people to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife.
  • to strengthen protections for victims of crime; to establish certain absolute basic rights for victims; and to ensure the enforcement of these rights.
  • to reduce the income tax rate in North Carolina to a maximum allowable rate of seven percent (7%).
  • to require voters to provide photo identification before voting in person.
  • to change the process of filling judicial vacancies that occur between judicial elections from a process in which the Governor has sole appointment power to a process in which the people of the State nominate individuals to fill vacancies by way of a commission comprised of appointees made by the judicial, executive, and legislative branches charged with making recommendations to the legislature as to which nominees are deemed qualified; then the legislature will recommend at least two nominees to the Governor via legislative action not subject to gubernatorial veto; and the Governor will appoint judges from among these nominees.
  • to establish an eight-member Bipartisan Board of Ethics and Elections Enforcement in the Constitution to administer ethics and elections law.
