Voters go to polls on Tuesday

Published 8:54 am Thursday, May 3, 2018

The time is here.

This time next week, Davie residents (barring a race too close to call) will know who the next sheriff will be, as well as county commissioners.

They’ll also know the Republican nominees for school board and state senate.

Voters will go to the polls on Tuesday to decide these and other races, and since no Democrats filed for sheriff or county commissioner, those races will likely be decided on Tuesday. Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m.-7 p.m.

Early voting is also available weekdays 8 a.m.-6 p.m. at the board of elections, and on Saturday from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

Remote early voting sites will be open from noon-6 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, and from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at: Bermuda Run Town Hall, Jerusalem Volunteer Fire Department, William R. Davie Volunteer Fire Department and the Fork Civic Center.

Republicans Kevin Curtiss, Mark Howell, Nelson Turrentine, Mitch Whitener and JD Hartman seek the sheriff’s nomination.

Republicans seeking the two seats on the board of county commissioners are Robert Wisecarver, John Ferguson, James Blakley, Benita Finney and Charles Odell Williams.

Republicans seeking nominations for three seats on the board of education include Clint Junker, Lori Sluder Smith, David Carroll and Dwight C. Goodman. Democrat Vicky Moore will be on the November ballot, and incumbent Barbara Owens is getting signatures to be included in November as an independent candidate.

Republicans Dan Barrett and Joyce Krawiec – both incumbents – are joined by Peter Antinozzi in the nomination for the newly-formed state senate district 31.
