Early voting runs Sept. 17-Oct. 3, with Election Day Oct. 6. During early voting, you can register to vote and cast your ballot on the same day.
The Durham city election is a primary; the top two vote-getters in each race will proceed to the general election, Nov. 3. All Durham City voters can cast ballots in all ward races; however, the candidate must live in the ward he or she represents.
Since the races for mayor and City Council Ward III have only two candidates, they are not listed on the primary ballot, only on the Nov. 3 ballot.
