Legends will not be a transfer site for the Nov. 5 municipal elections after a decision made by the Watauga County Board of Elections chairman Luke Eggers, said Jane Hodges, the director of the Watauga County BOE.
A transfer site allows any registered voter within a county to vote, regardless of precinct. Since Legends is no longer a transfer site, students will have to vote at the precincts they are assigned or file a provisional ballot, which allows voters to vote in a different precinct.
Students can still vote at Legends with a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot is more work for the board of elections because each ballot has to be verified by the board, said Jesse Presnell, third vice chair of the Democratic Party of Watauga County.
