Carolina Journal’s Barry Smith profiles the ballot issues that appear on the Nov. 6 ballot across the state.
While there’s no statewide referendum for North Carolina voters to decide during the Nov. 6 general election, citizens across the state will have the task of deciding 27 separate local ballot issues.
Six counties — Alamance, Edgecombe, Greene, Pasquotank, Scotland, and Swain — will decide whether to adopt an additional 0.25 cent sales tax. Another, Orange, will vote on a half-cent sales tax for local and regional transit purposes.
Three counties — Clay, Greene, and Swain — will be asking voters to alter the makeup or method of election of their board of county commissioners.
Then there are municipal referendums, ranging from bond issues to the sale of a water system to banning smoking on the beach.
