For the first time in history, North Carolina voters across the state will see IRV, or Instant Runoff Voting, on their ballots. The voting method, which whittles a long list of candidates by combining a primary and election, will be used for the statewide race for Court of Appeals Judge.

Thankfully, Durham's Board of Elections Director, Mike Ashe, will guide any anxious voters through a practice run from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at the main branch of the Durham County Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

Ashe will provide the audience with sample ballots and explain how voters will choose their first, second and third choices for Court of Appeals Judge, and how how the votes will be tabulated the night of the Nov. 2 election.

Pictured here is a preview of IRV instructions, which are also available on the Durham BOE website.

Early voting at the Board of Elections office at 706 W. Corporation St. begins at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14. Satellite locations at libraries in north and south Durham will begin Monday, Oct. 25. Details on times and locations are on the BOE site.
