The voter registration deadlines to be able to vote in this November’s election have passed except for mail-in applications, which are due tomorrow.

On Wednesday, October 19, we’ll have the School Board District 4 candidates, Gene “Doc” Lipsey and Rossi Hames. On Thursday, October 20, the School Board District 5 race is featured, with Tommy Mann and Mark Truitt. Friday, October 21, will be the forum for School Board District 9, with Jane Wilkes and Beth Anthony. On Monday, October 24, Union County Council District 1 is featured, with Danny Bright and Tracie Farr Campbell. On Tuesday, October 25, County Council District 4 is scheduled, with Annie Smith and Jennifer Wood. Finally, on Wednesday, October 26, the candidates for Union County Supervisor, Phillip Russell and Timika Wilson, are scheduled to come in.
