Voter Discussions And News

In 2021, district boundaries shifted slightly to the West as the population in the western part of the county saw greater population rise. Additionally, all board of education and commissioners districts are aligned.

Discussions:

What are the biggest issues you want to see addressed by commissioners, the board of education, state senators and representatives, Congressional representatives and senators, and local mayors and town councils?

As the county continues to grow, what issues face the clerk of court, register of deeds, or local sheriff?

What specifically caused you to vote for your choice of presidential candidate or governor?

If you’re a voter in Carteret County, please remember that the board of elections is always seeking volunteers and this is a great way to give back to the community.
