  1. “If you DID NOT VOTE in the May 4 primary, you can vote in the Democratic primary; or, if you DID NOT VOTE in the May 4 primary, and IF YOU LIVE IN U. S. HOUSE DISTRICTS 12 OR 13, you can vote in the Republican primary.”

    Are you sure about that? I am not disagreeing, it is just that I thought that unaffiliated voters who did not vote in the primary cannot vote in a runoff. Am I wrong?

  2. Yes. According to the Guilford County Board of Elections, Unaffiliated voters who did not vote in the May 4 primary can vote either ballot in the June 22 primary. However, in this case, the Board adds that those voters would have to be living in U. S. House District 12 or U. S.House District 13 to vote one of the Republican ballots.

  3. Well, thank you. I know an unaffiliated voter who did not vote in the primary and I gave her some misinformation. I’ll have to pass along the good news. Thanks!
