BRUNSWICK COUNTY — With the highest number of municipalities in North Carolina, Brunswick County will see over 70 new elected officials in this municipal election.

November brings 19 municipal, two utility districts, and one hospital board elections.

Related: With 73 officials elected last municipal cycle, it’s always a crowded field in Brunswick County

Some races are more crowded than others. And with increased competition typically comes increased voter turnout.

Port City Daily sought to complete candidate profiles for the following municipal elections: Leland, Belville, Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2GO, Southport, Oak Island, and Boiling Spring Lakes.

Author’s note: Port City Daily was unable to reach candidates with a “*” appearing next to their name. Candidates without a link to their candidate profile were reached but did not complete or respond to the candidate questionnaire. Port City Daily wishes to include all candidates and will update this article with any additional responses when they are received.
