Polls Open from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm
Preliminary Results Added

Election Coverage Card

Today is the second primary day in the 2016 election cycle. All regular polling locations are open and posted below for your convenience.

Only 328 of the 24,756 registered voters in Macon County availed themselves of the opportunity to vote early in this primary. Statewide projections are that only 5% of voters will participate in this second primary.

Voters will need to have Photo ID in order to vote. Learn about the acceptable forms of identification at the North Carolina Voter ID website.

There are two ballots for this election, one for Democrats and one for Libertarians, Republicans and Unaffiliated voters.

On the Democratic ballot, there is a little-reported or acknowledged primary race between Tom Hill and Rick Bryson for Congress. The winner will face Congressman Mark Meadows this fall. Democrats are the only ones voting in this Congressional primary in the 11th district since there are no challengers to the Republican incumbent.

On both the Democratic and Nonpartisan ballots, four candidates are running for Associate Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. Here they are presented in the order in which the candidates appear on the ballots: Michael R. (Mike) Morgan, Daniel Robertson, Robert H. (Bob) Edmunds and Sabra Jean Faires.
