Maintain and Expand Access to Early Voting in Orange County

I've been a strong advocate for early voting locations and hours in Orange County that provide adequate access for all Orange County residents in my time as a student and council member in Chapel Hill. I'm sharing below my open letter to the Board of Elections as they make decisions this week about early voting locations for this fall. Interested in making your voice heard about early voting? They'll be meeting tomorrow (July 21st) at the Board of Elections in Hillsborough at noon to determine early voting hours and locations for this fall. 

Dear Orange County Board of Elections,

 

As you consider potential early voting locations and hours for the 2015 election, I wanted to offer some thoughts and recommendations. As always, thank you for your thoughtful approach to and deliberative process in setting an early voting calendar.

Know Your Rights: Youth and Policing Forum

An event announcement from Orange/Chatham public defender James Williams:

  • Do you know how to respond to police during a traffic stop?
  • Did you know regardless of your citizenship status, you have constitutional rights?
  • Do you know you are not required to consent to a search of yourself?

Panel Discussion Moderated by Dr. Rodney Coleman

While everyone is welcome, it is being planned primarily by and on behalf of young people. It is really important to encourage our youth, particularly mid-teens to mid-twenties to attend. Representatives from the bench, bar, law enforcement, and community will be among the panelists. Refreshments will be provided.

Date: 

Saturday, February 28, 2015 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Town Hall Series Starts Next Week

Starting next week, I'll be hosting a series of four Town Hall events that each focus on a different issue in our community: downtown Chapel Hill, social and environmental justice, economic development and working together in Orange County. 

I want these events to be an opportunity for residents to engage and take an active role in shaping the future of our town. All you need to bring is an open mind and ideas for how we can build a more vibrant, livable community. Here's the schedule:

Issue: Downtown Chapel Hill
When: Wednesday, Feb. 25th at 5:30 p.m.
Where: DSI Comedy, 62 W Franklin St, Chapel Hill, NC 27514

Public Hearing: Housing and Community Development Needs

The Orange County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing to obtain comments regarding the housing and community development needs in Orange County, including the Towns of Carrboro, Chapel Hill, and Hillsborough. 

The public hearing will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3, at the Richard Whitted Meeting Facility in Hillsborough.

The needs identified and suggestions for addressing those needs will be considered in the development of the FY 2015-2019 Orange County Consolidated Housing Plan. 

Additionally, the County is seeking input from the community regarding the proposed expenditure of 2015-2016 HOME Investment Partnership funds. The Orange County Home Consortium expects to receive approximately $351,540 in HOME funds.  All interested County residents are invited to attend and provide comments during this hearing.
