North Carolina voters to decide local elections

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Nearly all North Carolina counties are holding elections for municipal and school board races and local referenda from the mountains to the coast.

Early in-person absentee voting ended over the weekend for the off-year elections, which are usually highlighted by mayoral elections in North Carolina's largest cities. Charlotte voters are deciding Tuesday on whether Democrat Patrick Cannon or Republican Edwin Peacock should succeed Anthony Foxx, former mayor who is now U.S. Transportation Secretary.

Greensboro is choosing whether to keep Robbie Perkins as mayor or pick city councilwoman Nancy Vaughan, who led last month's primary.

There are also school bonds, sales tax and alcohol questions on local ballots.

The State Board of Elections web site says there are more than 1,100 races and questions on ballots in 94 counties Tuesday.
