In preparation for what promises to be a large voter turnout during North Carolina’s Early Voting period (Oct. 16 through Nov. 1) and on the Nov. 4 General Election Day, Xpress wants to help answer any questions you have about the voting process. For example, we’ve already been asked whether voters are allowed to wear campaign T-shirts or buttons in the polling places. (The answer: Yes, as long as you don’t practice “electioneering” — that is, telling someone how to vote or handing out material — inside the polling place or within 50 feet of the outside door. Poll workers, mind you, must always refrain from wearing candidate-promoting garb or buttons.)
What would you like to know? Ask us! We’ll dig up the answers and compile them for our 2008 Voter Guide, which arrives on Wednesday, Oct. 22.
