Early Voting officially begins Thursday, May 26th and continues through June 4th for the June 7th election. You can vote early at the Orange County Board of Elections or at the Seymour Senior Center.
We will be voting for NC Supreme Court. Democrats will only have the option of a non-partisan primary ballot as there will be no Democratic primary for US Congress in the 4th District (which will now include all of Orange County due to redistricting). Independent voters have the option of voting in the Republican primary for Congres or the non-partisan ballot. Earlier this month, the Orange County Democratic Party proudly endorsed Judge Mike Morgan for this position.
We have an opportunity this election to tilt the balance of our state supreme court by electing Judge Mike Morgan to the bench. He has proven himself to be a respectable and well equipped judge. We at the OCDP encourage you to vote for Mike Morgan for the NC Supreme Court.
