SOUTHEAST N.C. — It’s finally here, Super Tuesday, the day voters will go to the polls in 14 different states (including North Carolina) and cast their votes in the primary election. The election will decide what the ballots in November will look like, whittling down the field in races from local Register of Deeds all the way to President of the United States.
Voting booths in North Carolina open at 6:30 a.m. and will close at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday evening — results will then be tabulated and then uploaded to the North Carolina State Board of Elections website.
While the national races have been heavily reported on, especially for their crowded field of candidates, local races are also full of candidates.
In New Hanover County, three Board of Commissioner seats are up for grabs with more than a dozen candidates vying for one of them.
“Of three Board of Commissioners candidates with terms ending in 2020, only one — Jonathan Barfield — is running for reelection. Commissioners Woody White and Patricia Kusek have both opted not to seek additional terms,” Port City Daily previously reported.
The top three vote-getters from each party will move on to the November General Election. A list of the New Hanover County candidates and links to their candidate profiles can be found below.
