Local election season is here in Orange County. Election Day is on Tuesday, Nov. 5, and polls will be open across the county from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
We talked to the candidates in each of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro races. Seats are up for Mayor of Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill Town Council, Mayor of Carrboro, Carrboro Board of Aldermen and Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education.
Many students are registered to vote from their residence hall address. If a student was previously registered in a residence hall and has since moved to a different residence hall, their precinct may have changed.
Voters who have moved within the same precinct simply report their address change when voting and the county registration records will be updated.
If a voter finds issues with the location of their voter registration, they may request a provisional ballot. Provisional ballots will be counted on Nov. 15 after the Orange County Board of Elections verifies the information on the ballot.
Voters must be registered before Election Day. Registration status can be checked at https://vt.ncsbe.gov/RegLkup/.
