North Carolina election info

Posted by: ST on October 13, 2006 at 10:43 pm

I’ve focused a lot of attention on national races, but wanted to take a moment to alert North Carolina readers to a few NC sites of interest you should find useful in learning more about Republican candidates running for the NC House and Senate, as well as those seeking a seat on the NC Court of Appeals and the NC Supreme Court. You’ll find the info on the judges especially useful, considering that North Carolina no longer puts the party affiliation of judges on the ballot.

Here’s a complete listing of Republican NC House, Senate, and judicial candidates. Beside each one you’ll see the little computer icon, which will take you to their webpage so you can learn more about them.

This is a separate page devoted specifically to Republican candidates for the NC Court of Appeals and NC Supreme Court. Their individual websites are listed under their names.

If you live in Mecklenburg County, as I do, here’s more info on candidates for county seats.

    Thanks for the links. This will be my first year voting in Wake county (had been voting in Cumberland) and the first year I’m not voting absentee in a long time. Here’s hoping conservatives turn out in droves!

    O/T: The 14 Oct edition of the Raleigh N&O has an interesting assessment of NC’s level of power in National politics. The paper is unabashedly left-leaning but the article is still worth a read.

  2. Hey, we’ve got two interesting Congressional races – the 8th and the 11th. I live in the 8th and the incubment – Robin Hayes – needs all the help he can get. Stop by the HQ and put a sign in your yard or something – seriously…we can’t have a favorite of the Nutroots (Larry Kissell) representing the 8th.

    Living just north of ST in Cabarrus County – I’ve been running a Q&A of the local candidates for County Commissioner and posting the responses on my blog – The View From the Cheap Seats – for the 1 or 2 of you who may be interested.

  3. I am running for the Mecklenburg County Commissioners,
    District Four[East Charlotte].my website has my profile and position listed on it.My motto for my campaign is Representation-Less Taxation, I got involved with local politics back in 2001, I ran last year in the same district for the school board, got 18% of votes out of a low turnout of 17%, sometime losing is winning, Our boards are dominated and controlled by democratic liberals who know nothing but
    tax and spend politics, waste is one of their virtues.
    Our schools and test scores, overcrowding, jails, crime, roads need to be repaved[Priority Spending]and
    they spend money for the arts, nascar, ball parks,and church property, light rail, arena. I would say somebody has to take a stand for our taxpayors and voters and make Charlotte Mecklenburg a first class
    city instead of a world class city. Homeowners have beared the brunt of additional taxes, now we have to go after entertainment, recreation, impact fees on builders, they go up on homes anyway every six months or so anyway, so what they pass it on to the consumer.
    I find most taxpayors would be glad to pay extra, IF it goes for schools and not some other capital project
    that should be on a refferendum for the taxpayors to vote for. End of Soap-box speech !
