PENDER COUNTY – Have you decided who to vote for in the primaries? Early voting begins this Thursday, April 28 and lasts two weeks. Primary election day is May 17.

Along with sample ballots, Port City Daily has compiled candidate questionnaires so voters can read the candidates’ positions in office before heading to the polls.

Voters will choose the candidates of their registered party that they wish to run in the official elections. Those registered as unaffiliated can choose the party primary in which they wish to vote.

Not registered to vote? Same-day registration is available throughout the early voting period. Check here to see if your registration is active at your current address.
