Early voting in primary starts Thursday 

Early voting in the 2018 primary election starts Thursday, April 19. 

In Dare County, citizens can cast votes in four locations. 

From April 19 through May 4, the Dare County Board of Elections office is open for voting from 8:30 to 5 p.m., each weekday. On Saturday, May 5, the elections office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Three locations are open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., on weekdays starting April 19 and ending Friday, May 4. Those locations are Pitts Center, 5377 N. Virginia Dare Trail; Southern Shores 

Kill Devil Hills Town Hall, 102 Town Hall Drive, Kill Devil Hills; Fessenden Center, 46830 NC 12, Buxton. 

Early voting or one-stop voting allows registered voters to vote at any voting site in the county.
Each site will have all the ballot styles for a given election at each site. 

In the contest for the Democratic nomination for the North Carolina Senate District 1 seat, Richard S. “Steve” James filed against D. Cole Phelps of Creswell. 

A challenge about residency was lodged against James. 

A committee appointed the state Board of Elections held a hearing on April 12 in Currituck County. The committee heard testimony. James did not show up for the hearing. 

The committee ruled James was not a viable candidate for the senate seat. 

Dare County election officials are awaiting final determination from the North Carolina Board of Elections as to whether there will be a Democratic primary.
