The Halifax County Agriculture Auditorium will serve as the sole one-stop early voting location in the days leading to the November 6 election.

The Halifax County Board of Elections approved the one-stop plan at a called meeting this afternoon. The auditorium is located on Ferrell Lane in Halifax beside the courthouse complex.

Voting will take place at the ag center on the following days and times:

October 17 through 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

October 22 through 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

October 29 through November 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

November 3, a Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This schedule, which the board unanimously approved with one member voting by phone, is a modification from an original plan to have an extra day which would have meant keeping the one-stop site open from from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. per new state legislation.

The vote today leaves Roanoke Rapids without a one-stop site, Deputy Board of Elections Director Spinosa Clements confirmed after the meeting. She said the cost to run a one-stop site per day starts around $600.

Roanoke Rapids did not have a one-stop site for the May primary.

Races in November will be as follows:

Weldon City Schools Board of Education

Edith Jenkins — challenger

Tanya Byrd-Robinson — incumbent

James “Tank” Williams — incumbent

Tiffany Hale — incumbent

United States House of Representatives District 1

G.K. Butterfield — incumbent

Roger Allison — Republican challenger

North Carolina State Senate District 4

Milton “Toby” Fitch — incumbent

Richard Scott — Republican challenger

Jesse Shearin — Libertarian challenger

North Carolina House of Representatives District 27

Michael Wray — incumbent

Raymond Dyer — Republican challenger

Halifax County sheriff

Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp is running unopposed after defeating challenger Tyree Davis in May.

Jimmie Silver, who had planned to run for sheriff as an independent candidate, announced in June via social media he was going to discontinue his run.

Clements said Silver’s name is not expected to appear on the November ballot although he has until August 8 to pay a filing fee.
