Poll workers see stream of voters


WILMINGTON -- The polls opened at 6:30 Tuesday morning. Poll workers say they generally saw a slow, steady stream of early morning voters.

In order for you to vote Tuesday you must be a citizen of the city of Wilmington, at least 18 years old and you must already be registered.

If you're unsure whether or not you're registered you can go to New Hanover County Board of Elections web site and check. The web site will also show you the closest polling place to your home.

New Hanover County Board of Elections Chairman Margaret Haynes said, "If people are thinking it's not worth it to come out and vote and that their vote doesn't count they are very mistaken. Voting today is really important. Voting in municipal elections effects your everyday quality of life."

If you are registered you still have time to cast your ballot. The polls close until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

I voted, but still feel betrayed. Now we will shortly be spennding city resources and energy into a frivolous convention center. And when it fails we will have to foot the bill that are not covered by room occupancy taxes. What about the Laura Padgett and the fire fighter episode at the Coddington school polls? Nobody cares about what a tail-hole she made herself out to be?

winners and losers of the race

Election Results: Winner of the race: special interest Loser: people And the golden arrss award goes to: The people who complain but did not vote. #1 thing that bothers me. Why do newspapers and other news organizations think they can maintain journalistic integrity in the eyes of the people while endorsing candidates?


I voted did you?
