Voting numbers remained flat Thursday as 156 Orange County residents cast their ballots early for the next sheriff.
Charles Blackwood and David Caldwell are in a runoff for the position after the two were separated by just more than 60 votes in the May 6 Primary. Since neither received more than 40 percent of the vote, the second-place finisher—Caldwell—was able to call for the runoff.
Only the Board of Elections Headquarters is taking votes in the early voting process because of the historically low turnout for runoffs. All 44 precincts will be open on Election Day, July 15.
The polls open each day this week from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Election Day is July 15, and all the polls open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The Orange County Board of Elections is located at 208 South Cameron Street in Hillsborough next to Orange County Financial Services.
