WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- The newly appointed Republican head of the Forsyth County Board of Elections says he plans to eliminate an early voting site at Winston-Salem State University.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that elections chairman Ken Raymond will move at a meeting Tuesday to shut down the voting site at the historically black school.
Raymond said he is taking action after hearing talk that a professor had offered students extra credit for voting, which he said was violation of elections law.
Forsyth is the latest county making it harder for students to cast a ballot. The Watauga board last week eliminated an early voting site and election-day precinct at Appalachian State University. The Pasquotank board ruled dorm addresses at historically-black Elizabeth City State University cannot be used to register to vote.
