DOBSON — The polls are open this week in advance of Tuesday’s primary elections for those wishing to take advantage of one-stop voting.


One-stop voting sites are open at the Surry County Board of Elections office in Dobson, the Elkin Rescue Squad and the Surry County Human Services Building in Mount Airy through Saturday.


Already, a number of registered voters have taken advantage of the opportunity to cast early ballots, rather than wait until May 6 in the precincts, with 270 people voting as of 5 p.m. Monday.
