Taylor eligibility hearing scheduled for noon, Thursday, Nov. 11

The Durham Board of Elections has scheduled a hearing on a complaint filed yesterday challenging the eligibility of Republican Roy Taylor to serve as Durham sheriff.

The hearing, which is open to the public, will be held at noon on Thursday, November 11, in the chambers of the Durham County Commissioners, elections Director Mike Ashe said. The chambers are located on the second floor of the old Durham Courthouse, 200 E. Main St.

The hearing was scheduled in response to a protest by former Durham sheriff Roland Leary on behalf of current Sheriff Worth Hill. Leary argues there is sufficient evidence to show Taylor has not lived in Durham County for the past year, which is a requirement under state elections law.

Taylor doesn't deny that he hasn't lived in Durham for a year, but says the state constitution indicates that candidates must only live in their base county for 30 days.

The hearing will be held only if Taylor earns more votes than Hill, who is seeking his fifth term in office. If Hill wins, the hearing will be canceled, Ashe said.

Early One Stop voting at the Board of Elections office downtown begins at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14. Election Day is Nov. 2.
