WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — The Forsyth County Board of Elections has tabled proposals that would have put security officers at an early voting site and required a stricter policy on returning forms collected during registration drives.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports (http://bit.ly/173mDWj) the proposals were introduced by Chairman Ken Raymond.
Forsyth Elections Director Rob Coffman told the board Tuesday that the county contracts for security officers to patrol the government center while it's open, and they could be called if there was a public safety issue.
Raymond tied the introduction of the voter registration policy to claims made in 2011, saying registration forms are often dropped off at the elections without information on how to contact drive organizers if there are problems.
