With the 2013 municipal election looming, Greenville City Council members extended olive branches on Monday, reaching a compromise to fund an additional early-voting site at the Drew Steele Center.

The selection, which requires approval by the Pitt County Board of Elections and U.S. Department of Justice, came at the expense of East Carolina University, a proposed polling location some said they thought was being eyed by potential candidates as a way to use the “very eager” student vote to influence the election.


The claim has been the focus of a three-year debate — which resumed last week — on who should decide where polling sites go.

Makes sense to get away from Mercer

wanting on ECU campus. Great choice. No more politics for him.

Open your eyes

When is the public going to see that the truth voting block is 2 not 4. Blackburn suggested the Drew Steele Center two days ago in the newspaper. I guess it shocked her and Mercer so much that everyone agreed with her that they still have to try to cause opposition but suggesting another change. Mercer is running for Mayor and has been since his beloved Pat lost.
