The primary election for city offices will be held in less than two weeks, on Tuesday October 6. Early voting begins tomorrow, Thursday September 24, and runs through Saturday October 3 (closed Saturday September 26 and Sunday September 27). The only early-voting location is very convenient to the neighborhood, the old county courthouse on West Market Street.

The election-day polling place for College Hill (Precinct 44) is the clubhouse at the Province on Spring Garden Street the Guilford County Schools administration building, 501 West Washington St., across from Weaver Academy (updated 9/25). If you’re not registered to vote, it’s too late to register for the primary, but you can register for the November 3 general election until 25 days before the election. Click here for information on how to register.

Registered voters in College Hill can vote in two primary races — mayor and City Council District 3. Mayor Nancy Vaughan has two challengers. Our new City Council representative, Justin Outling, has two challengers as well. Outling was appointed in June after Zack Methany resigned to become the head of Downtown Greensboro Inc.
