Wake County Announces One-Stop Voting Locations For Sept. Primary

Posted July 23, 2002

— Registered voters in

Wake County

can start casting ballots for the September primary in August.

One-Stop voting starts at the following five Wake County locations on August 22:

Raleigh:

  • Wake County Board of Elections, 339 Salisbury St.
  • Mary E. Phillips High School, 1923 Milburnie Road
  • North West City Services and Police Substation, 6544 Glenwood Ave.
  • Cary:

  • Cary Senior Citizens Center, 120 Maury O'Dell Place
  • Garner:

  • Garner Community Service Building, Town Hall Complex, Building B, 900 Seventh Ave.
  • Any registered Wake County voter can cast a ballot at any of the five sites. One-Stop voting ends Sept. 7.

    In November, Wake County will test new touch-screen voting machines that could make casting a ballot as easy as using an ATM.

    "You just walk up and touch the screen. It highlights your choice and shows you who you're voting for," said John Gilbert, of the Wake County Election Board.

    The machines cost about $3,300 each, but county elections officials said that they could save money in the long run by reducing the number of printed ballots.

    Wake County will experiment with touch-screen machines from four different companies in the November election. Officials will rate the machines and then decide which, if any, the county should buy.
