The March 15, 2016 Primary in North Carolina is under way, and our schools are counting on your support. Here’s your one-stop info guide for Iredell County. 

Remember, when it comes to Commissioners and the Board of Education, the primary election is just as important as the general election. 

Primaries allow registered voters the opportunity to choose which candidates will continue to the November 2016 general election. You’ll see presidential candidates on the ballot, and you’ll also see candidates running in critical local races, including County Commissioner, Board of Education, and NC House and Senate.

In Iredell County, a strong tradition of Republican support often means that some candidates go unopposed in the general election–meaning that primary elections are even more important in determining which candidate will become your representative.

Voter ID is required to vote at the polling place.

Before you can vote, you’ll have to present an approved piece of identification. See www.voterid.nc.gov for accepted identification. Remember, free NC DMV ID cards can be obtained at the DMV.
