The 2018 Election is November 6th, from 6:30am to 7:30pm. Regardless of political affiliation, it's a powerful right to vote and it shouldn't be ignored.
You can vote early at a number of One-Stop Absentee Voting locations throughout the County until Saturday November 3rd.
Citizens should make it their top priority to head to the polls and exercise their right to participate in selecting who will have the power to make decisions on their behalf. This is the opportunity to participate in democracy.
For more information about voter registration and polling locations you can call (910) 798-7330 or visit the Elections Office online at www.nhcgov.com
On Tuesday October 23rd, 14,649 people had already voted since One-Stop Absentee Early Voting began in New Hanover County on October 17th.
There are five locations for early voting: the Board of Elections, located at the New Hanover County Government Center at 230 Government Center Drive, Suite 34 (accessible from the sidewalk facing College Road); New Hanover County Senior Resource Center at 2222 S. College Road; Cape Fear Community College Rooms L110A and L112 at 415 N. 2nd Street; Northeast Regional Library at 1241 Military Cutoff Road; and Carolina Beach Town Hall at 1121 N Lake Park Boulevard.
This year elections are for US. House of Representatives, State House and Senate, District Attorney, County Board of Commissioners, County Board of Education, Soil & water Conservation District supervisor, Sheriff as well as numerous Judicial offices.
Also on the ballot are six amendments to the State Constitution. I'm working on a guide to those amendments for publication in our October 31st, issue next Wednesday.
