The Election Commission has received reports from voters who have received a text from a North Carolina number with false information about early voting on the weekend.

“The Election Commission does not send voter’s information via text,” said Linda Phillips, administrator of elections. “We want to emphasize that the polls are open on Saturday. We strongly condemn this false and misleading text.”

The polls open at 8 a.m. Saturday and close at 4 p.m.

The only location that will not be open Saturday is Calvary Episcopal Church downtown.

“We want everyone to come out and vote early. It’s convenient for voters,” Phillips said.
