Chatham County voting guide 

Federal, state and local races are in the primary election; however, some contests don't have primaries if there is only one candidate from the party running for a seat.

Election Day is Tuesday, May 4. Early voting begins Thursday, April 15, and runs through Saturday, May 1. During early voting, you can register to vote and cast your ballot on the same day.

Runoff elections, if necessary, will be held Tuesday, June 22, with early voting running from June 3–19.

For more information or to find your polling place, call the Chatham County Board of Elections at 545-8500 or visit www.chathamnc.org/Index.aspx?page=110.

The Indy does not endorse in unopposed races. Here are our recommendations for the contested elections.

Please note that not all of these names appear on every Chatham voter's ballot. Some congressional districts, for example, include only limited areas of the county. The Chatham County Board of Education race is in the fall.
