Primary election: Tuesday May 6

It’s just two highly suspenseful weeks until Election Day for the May primary. You may say, “It’s only the primary,” but, come on, this could be at least as much fun as any other off-year election.

  • Republicans get to vote for or against Zach Matheny, our City Council representative, in his campaign for Congress. He’s running against 27 other R’s for the nomination for the retiring Howard Coble’s seat.  About the same number are contending to be the GOP’s anti-Hagan in November.
  • Democrats get to vote for or against Skip Alston in his bid to unseat incumbent State Sen. Gladys Robinson. Various current county commissioners are running for various other offices as well.
  • Libertarians get to chose between two candidates in a single race, along with the nonpartisan judicial race that everyone gets to vote on.

Early voting begins this week.

The Democratic, Libertarian and Republican composite ballots can be accessed from the Guilford County Board of Elections homepage.

All, or at least most, of what you need to know about voting in College Hill is contained on our new election-info webpage, located in the Neighborhood Information section.

Candidate forum

To learn more about the candidates for our state House and Senate districts, there will be a candidate forum for local legislative districts on Thursday April 24, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the GTCC Jamestown campus. It’s sponsored by the local League of Women Voters, Guilford Association of Educators, Greensboro NAACP and several other groups.

So don’t forget to vote. And don’t forget our polling place is at The Province now for some reason.
