Over the past several weeks, we’ve conducted interviews with 12 of the fourteen candidates running for a seat on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board. We hope these interviews provide you with insight into their philosophy and approach to serving our community. We have also examined the municipal voting history and party affiliation history for candidates. Please feel free to share this post with other parents, neighbors, and voters.
Make your 2023 municipal election voting plan
Beginning with the 2023 municipal elections, North Carolina voters will be required to show photo ID when they check in to vote. Voters who vote by mail will be asked to include a photocopy of an acceptable ID when returning their ballot by mail.
Check your voter registration now. You can look it up here. This is really important particularly if you’ve moved in the past year.
Make a plan to vote during early voting. This ensures that if there’s a problem, you can sort it out. Early voting runs from October 19-November 4. Here is the complete schedule of voting sites, dates, and times for Orange County.
Read about the new voter ID requirements. Every vote counts in North Carolina, and this information must be shared early and often. If you know of people who have just moved here, or students, or new neighbors, please let them know about registering and the voter ID requirements.
Here are all 12 interviews:
Ashton Powell (incumbent) and Michelle Rissling did not submit a questionnaire.
