New Hanover County

The 2011 municipal elections in the Cape Fear region, as analyzed by Ralph Kornegay, Professor of Political Science Emeritus at Cape Fear Community College and currently an instructor at UNC Wilmington.

Saturday is the last day for early voting in New Hanover County where there are more than 87,000 registered voters eligible for municipal elections. WHQR’s Sara Wood reports that despite the county’s efforts to make early voting more accessible, turnout so far for this election remains predictably low.
