The voter registration deadline for 28 counties in North Carolina is now extended because of impacts from Hurricane Florence.  New Hanover, Brunswick, Pender, and Onslow Counties, as well as 24 other affected areas, now have until 5 PM October 15th to register.  The deadline had been Friday, October 12th. 

If Ed Higgins wins a seventh term on New Hanover County’s Board of Education, he will have served nearly three decades.  Bruce Shell, also an incumbent, is seeking his second term.  In a Republican primary field of seven candidates, both men are competing for one of the four open seats.
