New early vote plans must be adopted.l by August 19. Previous adopted plan voided by NCSBE. Guidance issued at 5 pm [Friday 8/5] is here. https://s3.amazonaws.com/dl.ncsbe.gov/sboe/numbermemo/2016/Numbered%20Memo%202016-11.pdf
If you are able to attend the meetings, call your county Board of Elections and ask if they plan to meet to discuss their early voting plan. If so, try to attend.
NOTE: Please be nice (unless you know that you should not be!). Most elections folks are reasonable. Watauga seems to be an outlier. Unfortunately, Orange seems to be trying to keep it company.
