    Two East Carolina University journalism professors are taking their voter information website,, into its second year and adding a second county.

    This year the site focuses on candidates in local elections in Pitt County and, for the first time, in Beaufort County.

    "We're grateful to be able to provide voters in Pitt and now Beaufort counties with nonpartisan information about local candidates running for local offices. is a conduit for candidates to speak to voters about their goals and priorities should they be elected or re-elected," said Dr. Cindy Elmore, the site's founder and co-director.

    "We believe democracy is at its strongest when citizens vote. Sadly, the reality is that few voters participate in local elections. This often is because they don't know much about who's running for local offices. That's why we started," Elmore said.

    Elmore and co-director Dr. Brian Massey started in 2020 with grants from ECU's College of Fine Arts and Communication and the School of Communication.
