NOVEMBER 6, 2012 GENERAL ELECTIONS
On November 6, 2012, North Carolina voters will go to the polls to choose which candidates will represent them in federal, state, and local government. In order to promote civic responsibility and to help voters better understand where the candidates stand on critically important issues, the North Carolina Family Policy Council is pleased to provide this impartial, nonpartisan 2012 General Election Voter Guide.
The Council sent questionnaires by certified mail to more than 590 candidates running for office in the primary election. Following the primaries, there are 365 candidates running in the general election. The candidates' responses to the questionnaires are compiled on this website and may include additional comments and explanations provided by the candidates.
The 2012 General Election Voter Guide is available both online and in print. Print versions of the 2012 General Election Voter Guide are available in bulk for distribution at churches, civic groups, and other organizations by contacting the North Carolina Family Policy Council at (919) 807-0800.
How To Get The Most Out Of This Web Site:
- Some offices in North Carolina are elected statewide (N.C. Governor, N.C. Lieutenant Governor, N.C. Council of State, N.C. Supreme Court, and N.C. Court of Appeals), while others are elected by district (U.S. House, N.C. Superior Court, N.C. Senate, and N.C. House). To determine your voting districts, refer to your voter registration card or visit the State Board of Elections website. The SBOE offers a handy tool that allows you to print a personalized sample ballot listing all the races in which you have the opportunity to vote. At the "My Election Information Voter Lookup" page on the SBOE website, select "Show me my Voter Information," and then enter your name and county or date of birth and click on "Submit." In the middle of the next page, click on "My Sample Ballot" to obtain your sample ballot. Once you have your sample ballot, go to step 2 below.
