As chairman of the Wilson County Board of Elections, I would like to update the public on a recent review of our voter records by the State Board of Elections.
The Wilson Times article of April 26 (“Candidate running in wrong district” by Brie Handgraaf, front page) reported an error in the placement of voters who reside in the new Whirligig Station, 230 Goldsboro St. SW, Wilson. In response to that report, a thorough review of all voters in the city of Wilson was conducted by the North Carolina State Board of Elections to ensure that all voters have been placed in the correct City Council district.
This review by the State Board of Elections corrected the City Council district for those who reside at 230 Goldsboro St. SW. Likewise, the state board has confirmed that all other voters have been placed in the correct City Council districts and, therefore, have been and will be given the correct ballots as they vote in the May 17 primary.
We appreciate you bringing this to our attention as well as your patience and understanding while this review was conducted.
The writer is chairman of the Wilson County Board of Elections.
