Five things you need to know to vote in November
November 6 is less than a month away, so that means midterm elections are right around the corner. In fact, voting has already begun.
A little more than a month ago, we didn’t even know what would be on the ballot after federal judges found North Carolina’s congressional maps were drawn with too much partisan gerrymandering. There was also all the noise surrounding the six amendments on the ballots, and some had to be rewritten.
With all of that happening, and more, it’s been hard for voters to keep up with the candidates, their backgrounds and their views on important policies.
With that in mind, The News & Observer and The Herald-Sun asked candidates on the ballot in the Triangle to answer some questions. We compiled the answers of those who responded so you can be well-informed about the candidates before you cast your votes.
You can re-organize the voter guide information alphabetically by clicking on the category you want it organized by, such as name or city of residence. In addition, you can also download the list of candidates who participated in the voter guide.
