Gerry Cohen is a member of the Wake County Board of Elections and an adjunct instructor at Duke University. He was also on staff at the North Carolina General Assembly for more than thirty years and helped write many of the state’s voting laws. As a UNC student in the 1970’s, Cohen played a key role in lawsuits that won students the right to vote at their college addresses, rather than in their hometowns.
Meredith Radford spoke with him about what voters can expect at the polls this year and how to prepare to vote.
