BJ Bayne won her primary to be the Democratic candidate for Polk County Sheriff and David Wheeler won his primary to be the Democratic candidate for the NC Senate. Congratulations to both who worked hard for their victories. Thanks to all who turned out to vote. Polk County had a 19.13% turnout rate. Not great, but better than most mid-term elections. Let's keep this trend going for the General Election so we can get ALL our candidates elected.
