Those wishing to vote in the special June primary need to register,update address, or change party affiliation by May 13.

The June primary, scheduled for June 7, will include candidates for a NC Supreme Court Associate Justice and the District 5 US House of Representatives.

The NC Supreme Court Associate Justice race will include candidates Daniel Robertson, Michael R. (Mike) Morgan. Robert H. (Bob) Edmunds, and Sabra Jean Faires.

Republicans Pattie Curran and incumbent Virginia Foxx will be on the ballot for the District 5 US House of Representatives seat.

Democratic voters will choose between Charlie Wallin, Jim Roberts and Josh Brannon for the District 5 US House of Representatives seat.

“As in other primaries, a registered Democrat will get the Democratic ballot, a registered Republican will get the Republican ballot, and an Unaffiliated voter can choose between ballots,” said Stokes County Board of Elections Director Jason Perry. “There’s also a non-partisan ballot that has only the state Supreme Court race on it. This is one of the three ballot options for an Unaffiliated voter, and it’s also the ballot that a registered Libertarian would have to vote for this primary.”

One-stop early voting, which begins on May 26 and ends on June 6, will take place at the elections office in Danbury.

“Same-day registration (registering and then voting at the same time during early voting) is available for this primary,” said Perry. “This is specifically for county residents who are not currently registered to vote in the county. Identification that shows the voter’s current county address is required. Based on a federal judge’s recent ruling, same-day registration will not be available for the general election this November.”

If a voter is interested in voting by mail, an Absentee Ballot Request Form must be submitted by May 31.

On Election Day, June 7, all polling places in the county will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
