Today is the Day!! Go Vote!!

Good Morning Everyone!!!  It has been a long time coming but North Carolina Primary Day is finally here!!

It has also been a long time since North Carolina has been in play during a Presidential Primary Season.  But, there are lots of important seats in play today.  On the ballot is a tight race on both the Republican (Pat McCrory and Fred Smith) and Democratic (Bev Perdue and Richard Moore) side for Governor.

There is also a very competitive race for Lt. Governor on the Democratic ballot between Walter Dalton and Hampton Delinger. On the Republican ballot we are seeing an interesting race with Robert Pittenger.

The Democratic ballot also has a race for a candidate to challenge Senator Elizabeth Dole in the Fall.  The candidates are Kay Hagan and Jim Neal.

Across the State voters will also be voting on local representation options. We have numerous races that will in the Fall decide who will represent you in the General Assembly.

This is a big election.  Big decisions that will shape future policy.  Again we encourage you to get involved.  Here are some things you need to know today

  • Polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.  If you are in line at 7:30 p. m. you WILL be able to vote.
  • If you do not know where your polling place is you can find it on the State Board of Elections webpage.
