Cary, NC — Residents of Cary who live in District D can vote in an important runoff election on Tuesday, November 3, 2015.
Runoff Election – Your Vote Counts
Two weeks ago, very few voters went to the polls to vote for Cary Town Council candidates. In fact, only 11.01% of registered voters cast a ballot in the October 6, 2015 municipal election.
Following the election, three incumbents returned to Cary Town Council, including Mayor Weinbrecht and Council Members Lori Bush and Don Frantz.
The race for District D, however, went undecided. Candidate Ken George received the most votes (42.23%) in a crowded field of four, and Maria Cervania followed him with 28% of votes. Since neither held the majority (50% of votes or greater), a runoff election will occur in Cary on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 for those who live in District D.
Find Your District & Polling Place
You can use one of two resources to learn your district and polling place.
On this Town of Cary resource, simply click the general location of your home on the map. Two tabs will pop up – one shows your polling place and another shows your district. District D residents will see that a seat is vacant and can vote for a candidate to fill it on November 3.
Here’s another resource from the NC Board of Elections. Enter your name, date of birth and county to see your voter info, precinct and polling place location. You will find a link to view your official sample ballot on that same page, too.
This resource shows you what your ballot will look like and who you’ll be voting for.
To learn more about the two District D candidates, check out our candidate questionnaires below. We asked each candidate to answer three questions in their own words.
You can also hear candidates’ positions on the issues most important to them on the Cary Community Candidate Forum on Cary TV.
