Election Update

Wayne Howard

The May 17th Primary Election is already underway.  Some people have already voted, although their votes won't be counted until the evening of May 17th.  Absentee voting by mail is allowed for any North Carolina resident.   Any eligible voter can request, receive, and vote an absentee ballot by mail.  Registered voters may request a ballot online at the North Carolina Absentee Ballot Portal. By-mail voters in 2022 must have their ballot witnessed and the return envelope signed by two individuals or a notary.

The East Lincoln Betterment Association held Meet the Candidates nights for three of the races on Monday & Wednesday (April 11th & 13th).  If you missed those events and would like to see the video recording of them, it is now available on YouTube:

Board of Commissioners candidates:
Sheriff candidates:
Board of Education candidates:

The Lincoln Herald will be doing interviews similar in format to the Presidential debates you have probably watched. On Monday April 25th, our reporter will ask questions of the candidates for Sheriff; then in a second session that evening, of candidates for the Board of Education. We'll have the candidates sit at a table and answer questions; they'll also have the opportunity to respond to what the other candidates have said. These interviews will be conducted at the Lincoln Cultural Center--but not in the auditorium, and not with an audience.  We'll record them, include them in an article on our website and post a link to them on YouTube.

On Tuesday April 26th we'll do the same kind of interviews with the candidates for Lincoln County Commissioner.  

We want to make sure that any question the public would like to have answered by the candidates is included. We are asking readers to send us questions they'd like to have asked. Email your questions to We have received some already, but we welcome others.
