Early Voting for June Primary Begins May 31 in Steele Creek

Vote!(May 16, 2016) The second 2016 Primary Election in North Carolina will be on June 7 at each precinct's polling location. Early voting starts Tuesday, May 31 and extends through Saturday, June 4 at the Steele Creek Library (13620 Steele Creek Road). Hours at the Steele Creek Library are

              Weekdays - 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM
              Saturday, June 4 - 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM             

Early voting also is available at Central Piedmont Community College on May 26 and 27, and at all 17 sites across Mecklenburg County May 31 through June 4. Click here for all locations and hours of operation.

Any Mecklenburg County voter can vote at any site during early voting, but voters must go to their assigned precinct's polling location on June 7. Same-day registration is available for the primary, but barring further court action, it will not be permitted thereafter. Most voters must now show acceptable photo ID or declare a reasonable impedement at the polling site. See 2016 Supreme Court Primary Election Guide for more information about election  procedures.

Absentee ballots are available until May 31. Go to Mecklenburg County Board of Elections for more information.

The June Primary ballot will include two races: United States Congress and North Carolina Supreme Court. The second primary was scheduled because of two court decisions. Federal courts ruled the current United States congressional districts unconstitutional, and state courts ruled the elimination of competitive elections for the North Carolina Supreme Court unconstitutional. These decisions came too late for congressional and Supreme Court primaries to be held during the first primary in March.

All of Steele Creek is in the new Congressional District 12, which is entirely within Mecklenburg County. See Map of New Congressional Districts in Mecklenburg County. There will be no runoff primary for congressional races. The top vote getter will win each party's primary.

Candidates in the Democratic primary for United States House of Representatives, District 12:

  • Alma Adams
  • Tricia Cotham
  • Carla D. Cunningham
  • Malcolm Graham
  • Gardenia Henley
  • Rick Miller

Rodney Moore also will be on the ballot, but he has suspended his campaign.

Candidates in the Republican primary for United States House of Representatives, District 12:

One seat for an eight-year term on the North Carolina Supreme Court is on the ballot. The two candidates who get the most votes in this non-partisan primary will appear on the November ballot.
