As of Tuesday afternoon, 8,765 one-stop ballots had been cast at the county's three one-stop voting sites.

One-stop voting will continues today through Saturday. The sites are from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at the following locations:

* Wayne County Public Library on East Ash Street

* Woodmen of the World building, 3733 U.S. 117 North, Goldsboro

* Southern Academy (the old Carver High School campus) 612 S. Breazeale Ave., Mount Olive.

Voters are asked for their name and address when they enter the sites.

People may do more than vote at a one-stop site. Registered voters may update their address and change information on an existing registration record.

New voters may complete a voter registration form and vote. However, they can vote only at a one-stop site in the county of registration during the one-stop voting period and not on Election Day.

To register, a person must go to a one-stop voting site in their county of residence during the one-stop voting period and complete a voter registration application. They must provide proof of residency by showing identification with their current name and current address.

Election Day is Nov. 3 when polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
