profiling the candidates and analyzing the issues.
Our reporters have spent months interviewing candidates and dissecting issues to bring you the most comprehensive guide to voting in Raleigh. We have analysis on the transportation and schools bonds, legislative changes to elections, and we profiled almost every candidate running for Raleigh City Council and the Wake County Board of Education.

A Voting How-to
Raleigh Public Record staff spoke to almost every candidate running for Raleigh City Council and the Wake County Board of Education. We asked candidates the same set of questions, transcribed their answers and cut the transcriptions down to fit the space in this guide.
Every candidate received an equal opportunity to participate. During our conversations with candidates, each was given the same opportunity to provide thoughtful answers to issues facing the city and Wake County schools. No candidate received the questions ahead of time.
We hope these profiles provide you, the voter, with the information you need to make informed decisions this fall.
