Who’s on the Ballot? 2017 Local Election Info

If you live in Morganton, here is a list of all the candidates you will be able to vote on during the upcoming election on November 7. Also noted is whether or not we have completed or scheduled an interview. Many local politicians we were unable to initiate contact with. Most simply won’t return our phone calls, some did return our calls but said they’d call us back to schedule the interview (then never answered any subsequent phone calls), and some apparently do not want to be contacted since they have no information listed on file.

  • Wendy Cato // Interview Completed
  • John Henry // Interview Scheduled
  • Artie Mae Mckesson-Logan // Unable to contact
