Editorial: Commission candidates take the stage

With 15 candidates vying for two seats on the Rowan County Board of Commissioners, voters may have an especially tough time sorting through the choices this year.
Tonight’s candidate forum at Catawba College can help by offering a firsthand look at how the candidates respond to questions about issues of particular relevance to the community.
The forum will be divided into two segments. The six Democratic candidates will take the stage with moderator Dr. Michael Bitzer from 6-7 p.m. The nine Republicans will follow from 7:15-8:30. Both forums will be in the Tom Smith Auditorium in the Ketner School of Business.
With less than a month before the North Carolina primary, voters need to be doing their homework for this important race and others on the ballot. While the Salisbury Post provides coverage of candidates and campaigns in our newspaper pages and at www.salisburypost.com, it also is partnering with Catawba College and the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce to offer this forum (as well as the legislative and congressional candidate forums held Wednesday evening at Catawba).
We hope to see you there this evening.
Meanwhile, here are some other election-related dates to keep in mind:
• Friday is the deadline for voter registrations and to make registration changes. If you’ve moved since the last election, make sure your registration information is current.
• One-Stop Absentee Voting begins April 19 at the Rowan Public Library’s headquarters, 201 W. Fisher St.; April 25 at the East Branch, 110 Broad Street, Rockwell; and April 16 at the South Branch, 920 Kimball Road, China Grove.
• The Salisbury Post’s election tab will be published on Sunday, April 29.
• May 8 — North Carolina primary.
