Primary Election Day May 6
Special Report - April 30, 2008
North Carolinians have the opportunity to exercise their civic duty by taking an active part in local, state, and national government next week. On Tuesday, May 6, voters will to head to the polls to vote for races that have primary opposition. While the presidential race has received the majority of media attention, there are many state and local races that will also appear on the Primary Election ballot, including races for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State Legislature, and judicial seats.
In order to help North Carolina voters make an informed decision at the polls, the North Carolina Family Policy Council has prepared the online 2008 Primary Voter Guide specifically for the Primary Election. In preparing this guide, the Council sent questionnaires by certified mail to 223 candidates for public offices in districts/races with Primary Election opposition, and over 55 percent of the candidates responded. Candidates who have no primary opposition (and thus no primary) will receive questionnaires prior to the General Election. The 2008 Primary Voter Guide is nonpartisan and impartial and follows the legal requirements for use in churches and other nonprofit organizations.
After the Primary Election, the North Carolina Family Policy Council will begin work on the 2008 General Election Voter Guide in preparation for the November 4 General Election. This guide will be available in print and online. Contact the Council if your church would like to distribute these nonpartisan Voter Guides before the General Election.
