In almost all North Carolina counties, 2019 is election year for municipal offices. Lincolnton is one of only seven North Carolina cities that don't vote on municipal offices in odd-numbered years. The law was changed in 2016 putting the City of Lincolnton election in even-numbered years along with County and State elections. Lincolnton also bears the distinction of being one of only a handful of North Carolina cities where municipal elections are still partisan.

So while there won't be an election in Lincoln County this year, there will be in Gaston, Catawba and Cleveland counties. Election Day is Tuesday November 5th. One-Stop Early Voting for the November election commences on October 16th.

The filing deadline for the municipal elections was Friday (July 19th) so the races are now set. Both Hickory and Shelby will also have Primary Elections in October. Here's the list of candidates from the Boards of Elections in area counties:
