Local races decided on Election Day

seal of the Robeson County Board of ElectionsNorth Carolinians went to the polls Tuesday and Charles Graham is the presumptive winner for the North Carolina House of Representatives District 47. Graham won his Democratic primary and has no Republican opponent on the ballot in November. For the Robeson County Board of Education, four incumbents were re-elected. There were 10 candidates vying for the three at-large seats. The Pembroke mayor’s race was a do-over from the election in November, and Greg Cummings took that win, in a nearly identical reversal of the fall count. The state referendum  known as “NC Connect” passed with two-thirds of the vote. This should mean a new $23 million dollar building for UNCP’s school of Business.
