Filing begins today at noon and closes in exactly two weeks. Races include Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education, Mebane Mayor and City Council, Hillsborough Mayor and Town Board, Carrboro Mayor and Board of Alderpeople, and Chapel Hill Mayor and Town Council.
There has already been a lot of discussion about candidates, and I think this will be a particularly interesting year. We'll have an opportunity to meet many of the candidates in person at The OP Posse's third annual Candidate Coming Out Party.
Please use this open thread to post updates as you learn about new candidates. We'll be watching candidate filings here on the Orange County Board of Elections web page.
(Check out all the links to each government in this post and you can see quite a wide range of ideas about how government can work online.)
