You know what they say: every year is an election year, and that’s absolutely true here in the Triangle. This season features municipal elections in Durham, Orange, and Wake counties and, over the next couple of weeks, we will strive to bring you as much coverage as possible to keep you well informed as you make your decisions at the polls. For races that take place in our coverage areas—that is, in the city of Durham and the towns of Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Hillsborough—we will make endorsements after carefully vetting municipal issues, and the candidates best suited to address them, as a staff. For Wake County municipalities, though we actively cover Raleigh and occasionally Cary (which won’t hold municipal elections until next fall), we won’t make endorsements but will offer questionnaires to all candidates running for office in Wake’s 11 municipalities that are holding elections. If you would like to see reporting on any particular races, or specific elections issues, in Wake, Orange, or Durham, please get in touch. And bookmark this page—we’ll add to it continuously over the next several weeks as the races heat up.
