RALEIGH, N.C – On Election Day, Tuesday (November 8), the State Board of Elections will host media availability sessions outside the BOE office, 441 N. Harrington St., Raleigh, NC 27603.
The sessions will be held at 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Please keep an eye on your emails for any updates to this schedule.
Also, please visit our Twitter feed, @NCSBE, and our Facebook page for important updates on Tuesday.
We also remind media representatives of guidelines for filming at polling locations:
· Precincts designate a “buffer zone” near the entrance of a polling location. No electioneering or loitering is permitted inside the zone. Members of the media who wish to enter the voting enclosure must get the approval of the chief judge at the precinct. The chief judge may allow the media to photograph or record video inside the voting enclosure, with consent of the voters. The media may not interview voters within the voting enclosure.
· No voter may be photographed or videoed marking his or her ballot. It is a violation of law to photograph or video a marked ballot. G.S. § 163-166.3(b),(c)
· If you are photographing or videotaping a candidate in the voting enclosure, only the permission of the candidate is required (not the chief judge). G.S. § 163-166.3(b)Share:
