  • Early Voting for Iowa's Primary Now Underway

Lucas County Board of Elections Director LaVera Scott said Monday that early voting numbers were far ahead of the 2014 gubernatorial primary.

In Elkhart County, there is a race for the Republican nominee for sheriff.

The ads paid for by America First are running as Republican primary voters decide Tuesday who will face the second-term Democrat in a fall election both parties see as critical to Senate control.

Indeed, if a candidate doesn't succeed in the primary election, then there is no general election for that candidate.

Polls are open from 6:30 a.m.to 7:30 p.m. Regular Election Office hours are 8 a.m.to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Eden Feldstein, of Sylvania Township, drove to his designated polling location on his lunch break to ensure he cast his ballot.

Primary election polls have closed across North Carolina, but two voting sites are staying open a little longer.

Pittenger beat Harris by 134 votes in the 2016 GOP primary in the 9th Congressional District which includes parts of Charlotte and its suburbs, along with poor counties and areas close to Fort Bragg.

Archer also urges legislators to consider allowing greater access to personal information so electoral officials can ensure the voters list is kept up to date.

Although there are no statewide primaries, such as president, governor or USA senator, on the ballot this year, there are still plenty of races where voters will whittle down the field of candidates before the November general election. As of March 27, election forecasters have given Republicans a more favorable outcome.

The party remains in the majority in Carteret County, hovering around 43 percent, though the number of unaffiliated voters has crept up in recent years, both here and across the state.

Can I same-day register and vote?

Countywide early voting will begin on Saturday, May 19 through Saturday until June 2.

"I should have been able to vote on all the issues of my community without declaring her allegiance to one specific party".

No. The Republican-controlled N.C. General Assembly earlier this decade passed a law to require voters show a specific type of photo ID to cast a ballot, but that law wasn't implemented after a court challenge argued it would unfairly disenfranchise minority voters.
