Voters across NC to decide Tuesday on local races, questions

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina voters have one more day to cast ballots to choose their next mayor or town council or school member, or to decide to whether to back borrowing for school construction.

Local elections wrap up with the polls opening Tuesday morning in all or portions of 94 of the state's 100 counties. Unofficial winners will be announced after precincts close in the evening.

The odd-numbered-year elections are highlighted by mayoral elections in North Carolina's largest cities, including Charlotte, Greensboro, Durham, Winston-Salem, Asheville and Fayetteville. Some localities are holding referenda on raising the local sales tax or allowing certain alcohol sales or ABC stores.

The State Board of Elections had counted by Monday nearly 98,000 absentee votes cast by mail or during the 2 1/2-week early voting period.
