I just looked at the numbers and, AT THIS POINT, it is interesting how many more votes republican's are getting than democrats in almost all of the races. From the posts I read in the forum, I would have thought it would be the other way around.

They're called a vocal minority for a reason

I guess, from the results, the consensus of the forum is not exactly representative of the state's citizens.

I'm unaffiliated & chose not to vote for a representative because I didn't like any of the Republicans & there was one candidate on the Democratic side. Most of the people who I know did the same for the same reason. I still voted for a judge & so did they.

Since majority of the districts was Republicans, a lot of districts only had NC Supreme Court
Two other factors were being a special Primary (not normal date in Summer when vacations occur) and some in new districts lack of interest.

However according to Pastor Mark Harris, his district (9th) had a huge turnout and is going to file for a recount
he lost by a 100 and some votes to Pittenger.
If he is elected, HB2 and A-1 could be bills on the federal level.
For outsider knowledge, his preachings mimic the style of Westboro Church.

Definitely, low voter turnout for Mecklenburg as it mostly in newly formed 12 districts and they elects incumbent Alma Adams who doesn't even live in Mecklenburg, (she lives in Greensboro.

13 district was totally moved, with no incumbents and it represents Iredell, Davie, Rowan, Davidson, and Guildford.
Out of 17 candidates, a Davie County candidate won, not knocking the county as Mocksville is cute just thought it was wild.


It also will be interesting this general election as some seasoned voters will be in for a shocker as this state doesnt allow straight ticket voting anymore.

Now THAT is a great thing, IMO. I cannot stand party voting. I wish they would also remove the party identifier next to each candidate's name. People should vote for the person, not the party....IMO.

I used to think that way, too. And then McCrory happened.

Pretty obvious HB2 lit a firecracker under the GOP and drove them to the polls. Pretty sure McCrory wins November.

It doesn't technically "negate" it, as the top 2 finishers move on to the November ballot.

Which turns out to be these two.
