Polls open for primary elections

Polls open for primary elections

Allen County Republicans will choose among three candidates for U.S. Senate: Jasper businessman Mike Braun, U.S. Rep. Luke Messer and U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita.

The 2018 primary elections are 6:30 a.m.to 7:30 p.m.

In Boulder County, there are no primary elections for any minor party, but you can still vote in either the Democratic or Republican primary. If you don't get a chance to vote early, Election Day is Tuesday the 22nd. Currently, voters can cast a no-excuse absentee ballot by mail or in person, or early vote where they put their ballot through a voting machine. Review your sample ballot at scVOTES.org and educate yourself on the candidates so you are ready to cast your ballot when you get to the voting booth.

Am I still registered to vote?

Early voting was steady Monday in Boone County as the first day saw more than 100 votes cast by noon of the first day. If you moved to a different precinct within the same county, less than 30 days before the election, you are allowed to vote at your old polling place.

The National Republican Congressional Committee's press secretary, Jesse Hunt, said the Democrats don't have these tightly-contested seats in the bag, especially after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she would run for Speaker if Democrats retake the House. In the Republican primary for state treasurer, Sandra O'Brien faces Robert Sprague.

No Democrat is running in the race so the victor of Tuesday's election is the likely victor in November.

Kappler said issues like water pollution and a sales tax expansion passed by the GOP-led legislature in 2015 will factor into motivating voters in certain North Carolina districts to turn out today. The victor will face Republican Brenda Letchworth Smith in November.

Some primary voters Tuesday also will choose nominees for district attorney and scores of county officials. Republican candidates in that race are businessman Rich Beck and Chris Spurr, a Navy veteran and Realtor. The victor in that race will face Republican Benji Holloman. In 2014, Republicans had a heated primary with millions spent on advertising by eventual victor Bruce Rauner, which drew Republican voters to the polls. The victor will face Democrat Christopher W. Nunnally in November.

The report does not seek an end to paper ballots, but recommends the use of electronic poll books and ballot tabulators to make voting day more efficient as ballots are handed out and collected.

You must bring ID - a valid driver's license, state ID card, or utility bill, bank statement or government check.
