Early voting wraps up for special second primary

ASHEBORO – There were 666 ballots cast in early voting in Randolph County for this week’s special second Republican primary.

The 13 days of early voting at the county’s Board of Election headquarters had as few as 26 voters on the first day and as many as 87 on Friday. There were 79 voters Saturday on the last day of early voting.

On Tuesday, voters are required to cast ballots at their designated precincts. Polls are open from 6:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m.

Republican voters are asked to select candidates in this special run-off election for lieutenant governor (Hal Weatherman and Jim O’Neill on ballot) and state auditor (Jack Clark and Dave Boliek on ballot).

Also eligible to vote are unaffiliated voters who either didn’t vote or voted the Republican ballot in the March 5 primary.

The second primary was needed when the second-place candidate in the first primary requested a runoff when no candidate received more than 30% of votes cast.
