Note about the Primaries: Primary elections are often punctuated with little interest and low turnout. But in Orange County, NC, where many more Democrats are registered than Republicans, the winner of the spring primary almost always wins the general election in November. Primaries matter in Orange County. For that reason, the Chamber is, once again, ramping-up our primary engagement and including candidates in our annual "Eggs with Elected Officials" event. Visit the Chamber's Election Hub to learn more about the 2020 primaries, candidates, and overall election process.Contact: For questions, contact Chamber VP Katie Loovis at (919) 696-0781 (cell) or KLoovis@carolinachamber.org.
