Early voting numbers vary by county


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Early voting for the June 22 run-off elections is doing better than expected in a few counties, but for some the turn out is disappointing.

In Bladen, Columbus and Brunswick Counties the elections offices are seeing drastically low numbers. Not one of the counties has had more than 60 ballots cast.

New Hanover and Bladen, though, have had a steady stream of voters who are casting their ballot for the run-off. Election workers in New Hanover County say their amazed by the turn-out so far.

"Actually we're excited about the turn-out, because usually on primary run-offs we don't get a great lot of people, but this time we've seen over 500, and we're excited about that," Shirley Mazzeo said.

One Stop early voting continues until June 19.

Berger Tells the Truth, Caster Lies

Brian Berger has answered all those questions, in numerous public forums before the May 4th Primary, in his campaign literature he handed out at events, and even on his Web site. In fact, Berger has the most complete and in-depth Web site which helped set him apart from the slick politicians like Caster.

Berger has been subjected to the most vicious, disgusting attacks from Caster and Caster's greedy, liberal RINO friends. Bill should be ashamed of himself for being so sleazy and stooping to such a low level, and so should his friends who pretend to "ask questions" but are really making mean-spirited innuendos (because the answers have been provided by Berger repeatedly in multiple forms and at numerous events).

The answer that matters is: Berger has been active in local politics for years, and he has always been courageous, consistent and selfless in looking out for normal folks. Berger has been honest and principled and sincere.

Caster has been disingenuous, unethical in raising money for his campaign of attacks and distortions, and Caster us a chameleon. A "concervative" when its election time, and a liberal big government, incompetent 18-year incumbent with poor judgement and a penchant for corruption between elections. He doesn't deserve another 4 years and the way he's run this campaign is beyond dishonorable. Caster and his supporters should be ashamed.

I probably would not have voted in this election but Caster's lying has been so egregious, and his supporters and "paid consultants" so slimy, that I am going to vote for Brian Berger. Every decent Christian, patriot and conservative should vote for Berger.

Caster needs to go, he's dishonored himself and is a liability to the Republican PArty and every candidate for the GOP in November. Berger would be an asset to our County government and other Republican candidates.


There are many good reasons to vote for
Brian Berger based on his position on the issues- meet him and come hear him and I think you will agree. HOWEVER-ONE OF THE REASONS FOR HEAVY VOTING IS VOTER ANGER AT BILL CASTER FOR NOT ANSWERING THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS-please think about them too----
(1) Why does Bill Caster take so much money from special interests that do business with the County?
(2) Why has he voted for tax increases and reckless spending over his many many years in office?
(3) Where was Caster when there was waste and corruption at ABC
(4) Why did Caster participate in a slimy process and sweetheart deal with Titan- we see BP in the Gulf -do we want that here?
(5) While Bill and his cronies have been doing and saying anything to keep his job-what about the jobs the County has lost and may not get because Caster has been concerned with his job but not ours. Where has Caster been?

Proud Republicans believe Brian Berger is right on the issues and a better Republican choice for all the voters in November. Now, we have Caster and his Pelosi kind of politics- Caster's kind of sleazy politics is no longer acceptable to most Republicans--and surely others. Caster's ads are misleading but we shouldn't be suprised so is Caster-just look at his record. We can win for the right reasons in November with Brian Berger--or lose deservedly for sure if we have to carry the burden of Caster's record and his kind of politics- Nationwide voters are rejecting Pelosi/ Caster politicos-they will do that here too.

High vote againsT Caster

Early voting and that still to come show voters want a change. Caster's poor record and sleazy campaign are big factors- Caster is using his special interest money to try to make us forget his tax and spend habits, broken promises and gross mismanagment of ABC.
Brian Berger is attracting voters with his stand on issues. Berger doesnt have the cozy relations with special interets and the money Caster gets- what Berger will have in early voting and on the 22nd is the trust of voters.
Cssters lies, poor leadership and failed reord lost that trust a long time ago.

Answer the questions Brian, answer the questions!

Answer the questions Brian, answer the questions!

QUESTION 1- What does he do for a living?
QUESTION 2- Where is he from?
QUESTION 3- What type of experience does he
have to manage a multi-million
dollar budget? And for who?
QUESTION 4- What level of education does he have? Where? When?

Answer the questions Brian, answer the questions!

Answer the Questions Bill

(1) Why did Caster allow mismangement and corruption to exist at ABC
(2) Why did Caster vote for tax increases and out of control spending-once again saying one thing before an election and doing another after-SORT of wonder about Caster credibility?
(3)Why does Caster take huge amounts of special interest money from those doing business with County?
(4) Why did Caster give a sweetheart deal to Titan- good for him bad for most of us.
Let's hear about Berger's experience but lets also hear about Caster's questionable competence and poor judgment.
I have no problem- I think Berger answered your questions. Problem is CASTER HAS NOT ANSWERED THESE QUESTIONS. Bill Caster's experience the wrong kind- sort of like competence of Carter=ethics of Edwards.
SO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BILL????? Your kind of sleaze might buy a run off-it is doomed to fail in November-The voters won't let Caster go without answers
