What’s That, You Say? You Just Voted? Another Election Starts Thursday. 

yourvotecounts.png

Just last week, voters in Raleigh, Cary, and Durham voted in municipal elections. In Cary and most of Raleigh, everything was settled: with Bonner Gaylord and Stacy Miller declining a runoff, the Raleigh City Council is set—and will likely be a little less developer-friendly than the current set. But on Sunday, mayoral challenger Charles Francis announced that he would indeed go to November, despite seemingly long odds. (He trailed McFarlane by twelve points in the first round.) In Durham, meanwhile, the primaries narrowed the field to two candidates in each of the four races.

This week, we're endorsing in the Raleigh mayoral runoff, the Durham general election, and races in Orange County. We've opted not to endorse in Morrisville, Apex, and other Wake County municipalities holding their elections November 7.

Early voting starts Thursday. Get out there and do your civic duty, people.
