There is a voting option in North Carolina to keep in mind when heading to the polls. You have the option of voting for a straight party ticket but that does not include your vote for President. Even if you vote for all Republicans or all Democrats, John McCain or Barack Obama won't get your vote unless you specifically check the box for them. New Hanover County Board of Elections Director, Bonnie Williams, wants to remind voters to read the voting instructions carefully. "There's a lot of misunderstanding that if I just make my selection for straight party, it's automatically going to include that same choice for the candidate belonging to that party for the office for President." If you vote a straight party ticket, judges are non-partisan offices, so you'll have to individually vote for them as well.
