What if they had an election, and nobody came?
Election day is tomorrow (Tuesday) ...Republicans will choose their candidates for Lt. Governor, NC Commissioner of Insurance, NC Superintendent of Public Instruction and NC Secretary of State. Democrats have only one position on the Watauga ballot, that of NC Commissioner of Labor.
The early voting numbers for Watauga reflect the low turnout experienced in most of the rest of the state. In Watauga only 173 ballots were cast during the early voting period. (This includes 24 by mail and 1 overseas ballot)
97 ballots were cast in the Republican races....76 in the Democrat primary.
Let's hope that we will see an increase in interest on election day...tomorrow.
