Election 2018: Final results of the races in Dare County

By on November 6, 2018

After nearly a year of campaign signs, fliers, ads, meet-and-greets, canvassing, fundraisers and forums, the 2018 Election came to a close on Tuesday across North Carolina.

Dare County has been one of the slowest in North Carolina to report totals in the past, and that trend has continued this election with six of the county’s 16 precincts still not posted as of 11 p.m.

Other than Hyde County, with two remaining to report, the other nine counties in northeastern North Carolina had already finished reporting their results several hours before Dare.

16,548 registered voters cast a ballot in Dare County as of Tuesday night, a 54.56 percent turnout.

Mail-in absentee and provisional ballots must still be tabulated before the results are certified by the Board of Elections during a canvass that will take place next week.

    Yikes cannot believe this series of outcomes. But after 2016, should not be surprised. But at least a (sic) Communist got elected in New York and Colorado will have a GAY Governor. Go America!!!!

    If you are talking about the Dare County website, those results likely are only for the single county, not the entire four-county district. Our numbers come directly from the NCSBE website.

    It’s the Register of Deeds race that scares me. Why politicize this position? A vow to “maintain records with honor and respect” does not qualify a political hack for a technical position. Shame on us I suppose for not paying attention.
