TO THE EDITOR:
Any voter registered in Orange County can cast an early vote from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday at the Morehead Building during the next two weeks. I encourage all students to take advantage of this option - it's much easier than getting to the correct polling place on Nov. 2.
There are a few intricacies of the ballot that people should be aware of before voting.
First, voting a straight ticket does not cast a ballot for that party's presidential candidate. Voters must select a candidate for president separately.
Second, this is the first year North Carolina has had nonpartisan judicial races. I strongly encourage voters to support the incumbents for re-election.
