    We’re not just helping voters. They help us out too. When I mentioned to a woman with a pre-teen daughter that I didn’t know why Durham County was proposing Early Voting hours until 7:30 pm every day except Monday, October 31, when locations would close at 5:30, she said, “That’s Halloween.” Ah hah! So now, while we wait for approval of the plan by the state Board of Elections, it’s a simpler message: The Durham County BOE hopes to stay open till 7:30 every day except Halloween.
