I’ve made some updates to the 2010 elections page (and hope to be able to add some more soon). The updates include some information about the soil and water conservation district candidates which is definitely lacking. Yes! Weekly did little profiles of all of them and two of them responded to the UNC-TV questionnaire so links to those are on there to help you make up your mind. It’s definitely a tricky one. I am assuming that they are all using their real names this time around. Additionally, I’ve added a link to the Carolina Journal Online Voting Guide to the 13-candidate NC Court of Appeals race which opened up in August with the appointment of Jim Wynn to the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. NC is going to be the first state to use an instant runoff in a general election so we’ll see how that goes.
Absentee ballots went out a week or so ago and early voting starts this Thursday so there’s no time like the present to get informed!
