The North Carolina State Board of Elections approved the appointments of two Democrats and two Republicans to make up the Halifax County Board of Elections.

What impact this has on the lack of a one-stop or early voting precinct in Roanoke Rapids next month remains to be seen, but county elections Supervisor Kristen Scott said she would be consulting with the state board on the matter.

Late Tuesday, the state board approved the nominations of Clarence Pender, Annie McCollum, David Hines and William Croisetiere to the county board. Pender, of Scotland Neck, and McCollum, of Roanoke Roanoke Rapids, are the democratic party representatives to the board. Hines, of Littleton, and Croisetiere, of the Lake Gaston-Littleton area, are the Republican party representatives to the board.

Pender has served previously on the board.

They have until noon on April 2 to be sworn in.

Scott said she is not sure when the new board will hold its first meeting. “We’re waiting on a response on one-stop (from the state) to see if the new board can address the one-stop (issue in Roanoke Rapids).”

Scott said it is not her plan to to take any one-stop sites away ahead of the May 8 primary but look to see whether a one-stop site can be added in Roanoke Rapids.

The city is currently without a one-stop site following oversight which made the Neighborhood Resource Center on Jackson Street unavailable.
