Voters in Wake County have lodged at least a dozen complaints to the county board of elections alleging poll observers have aggressively approached them as they entered early voting sites, reported The News & Observer today.

In Wake, both Democrats and Republicans have poll observers, although the complaints have been about the GOP.

So who are the poll observers? The Indy requested the lists of all approved poll observers from Wake, Durham, Orange and Chatham counties.

In Durham, only Republicans are on the list of poll observers. They include Frank Hurley, who ran for Congress in the 13th District, which covers part of Wake County, and lost in the primary to Bill Randall. He spoke at a Tax Day Tea Party event.

Laura Cox is the president of Triangle Republican Women. Carol King is the vice-chair of the North Durham Republicans. Marilyn Flanary is a member of Women for Burr Coalition.
