Dual protests in Raleigh follow announcement of Biden as president-elect

After Joe Biden was announced as the president-elect Saturday, people took to the streets in Raleigh, some celebrating Biden's victory and others falsely calling it fraudulent. Supporters of President Donald Trump marched to the North Carolina Executive Mansion in Raleigh, chanting “Stop the steal" to question the legitimacy of the election result. Two blocks away at the Halifax Mall, a collective of North Carolina organizations, called Team Democracy, held a peaceful rally supporting “counting all the votes and respecting the results.”

Poll Workers

'Celebration of citizenship': Inside the life of an N.C. poll worker

Rachel Raper, the director of elections for Orange County, said poll workers are critical to elections and complete a variety of roles during early voting and Election Day. “Poll workers are on the front line of democracy, and the experience voters have with poll workers shapes their opinions of elections and going to vote” she said. Because of the virus, the polling sites throughout Orange County are following safety protocols by maintaining social distancing, enforcing masks, limiting the number of people inside the polling site, disinfecting the voting sites between each use, not reusing sample ballots and putting up plastic barriers between voting stands.
