Preparing for the 2023 Municipal Elections - OBX Today

The 2023 Municipal Elections—which will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2023, in the towns of Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and Manteo—are less than a month away, and early voting begins on Thursday, October 19, 2023. Do you know which candidates are running for office in your municipality, where you can cast your ballot and what North Carolina’s voter photo ID requirement for 2023 entails?

Dare County and Current TV have partnered to create a video that provides comprehensive information regarding the number of candidates that have filed to run in contested elections in each of the six towns in Dare County, the dates and times during which early voting will be held in two locations prior to Election Day, where you can find a list of candidates that is grouped by each contest, and what information you’ll need to provide when you vote this year.

In addition, each of the towns will sponsor a series of candidate forums hosted by the League of Women Voters that can be viewed on Spectrum Channel 191 and streamed on demand at To view a schedule of the candidate forums for each town, please click here.
