2018 Election Cycle

Record Number of Candidates for 2018 Election Cycle

Jeanna LaMotte-Kerr

A heavy recruiting effort from both the N.C. Democratic Party and the N.C. Republican party paid off this election cycle. Candidate filing ended at noon this past Wednesday with a record number of candidates running for office. For the first time in recent memory, nearly all races in Wake County will have both a Democrat and Republican candidate.

While the general election is still months away, May primaries are right around the corner. Any districts with multiple candidates of the same party will be on the primary ballot - early voting starts April 19th! Sample ballots for your precinct will be available on BOE in the coming weeks. AFAR will work hard to keep this list updated with links to websites of candidates as they become available. If you'd like to send us a resource link please use afaraleigh919@gmail.com
