GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The decision to allow early one-stop Sunday voting settles the undecided voting plans for Pitt County. On Thursday, the North Carolina State Board of Elections finalized the voting plan, which had been sent last month.
Pitt County Board of Elections director David Davis said the plan is a combination of two original plans. In addition to the regular seven voting days, now sites will be open on two Sundays, from 1 to 5 p.m.
Davis said he is not surprised with the combined voting plan.
“What we’re going to put in place is no different than what we saw in 2008, 2010, 2012; so it is essentially the norm for Pitt County that a lot of times we won’t have a unanimous decision, and we’ll have to go to the state board, and you see that a lot in the larger counties,” Davis said.
With less than two months until Election Day, officials have also begun sending out absentee ballots.

One-stop early voting begins on October 20.
