Municipal election won't change

The controversy over state legislative maps will not affect the District 6 municipal race scheduled for March 23.

Danny Roseborough and Jackie Warrick will face off in the new election for the district that covers eastern Goldsboro. District 6 is currently represented by Delmus Bridgers, who will leave the council once a new councilman is sworn in.

A new election was ordered for District 6 in December after the State Board of Elections found that the election process for that district had been tainted.

The deadline to register to vote in this election is Feb. 23. People who are already registered with the Elections Board, don't have to register again. Registration can be done at the elections office on 209 S. William St., at the public library or at the driver's license office when renewing a driver's license.

On Feb. 20, the county board can begin accepting absentee ballots by mail for the rematch.

March 16 is the last day to request an absentee ballot by mail.

One-stop voting for the March 23 election begins March 4 and goes through March 20. Voters can go by the Wayne County Board of Elections office between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for one-stop voting. The last day of one-stop voting falls on the Saturday before the election, and the office will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on that day.

Voting will take place Tuesday, March 23, from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

All of the District 6 precincts will be open. They are Saulston Fire Station, New Hope Fire Station, the Family Y, Oak Forest Road Church, New Hope Friends Church, Greenwood Middle School and Goldsboro Wesleyan Church.
