Almost Over: Voters Go To The Polls On Tuesday

Published 12:00 am Thursday, May 17, 2012

Davie voters will go to the polls Tuesday to elect three county commissioners and three members to the county board of education, as well as make their choices in state and national races.
Incumbent county commissioners Ken White, Mark Jones and Richard Poindexter are being challenged by Terry Renegar, Jeff York and Charles Odell Williams. All are Republicans. No Democrats filed for the office.
For the board of education, all newcomers are seeking one of the three to be elected Tuesday: Gladys Scott, Jeff Plott, Linda Mace, Clint Junker, Wendy Hoots Horne, Dwight Goodman and Paul Drechsler. It is a non-partisan race.
Another local race garnering a lot of attention is that for the N.C. House, with Davie now in a district with portions of western Forsyth County. Incumbent Republican Julia C. Howard of Mocksville is being challenged by Bill Whiteheart of Lewisville.
The polling places will be open from 6:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Tuesday. For those registered voters who choose to vote early, they may do so at the board of elections office in the Brock Building in Mocksville between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday.
Voters can also cast early ballots on Friday from noon-6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at: Bermuda Run Town Hall, Jerusalem Volunteer Fire Dept., William R. Davie Volunteer fire Dept., and Fork Baptist Church Fellowship Hall …
