CLAYTON -- After weeks of driving past colorful picket signs that sprout from the ground on nearly every street corner, the election campaigns, debates and promotions will soon end, since Tuesday is the last day to vote. There are six polling locations in Clayton that will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will compete for the presidency. The biggest race in the state this year is the contest for governor. On the ballot are Democrat Walter Dalton, Republican Pat McCrory, and Libertarian Barbara Howe. In the state Senate race, Republican Brent Jackson is running unopposed in District 10. District 26 voters, which includes those in Clayton, will be voting between Republican incumbent Leo Daughtry and Democratic challenger Jenifer Bubenik to represent Clayton in the House of Representatives.

For local offices, Republican Jeffrey Carver is running unopposed for County Commissioner. Seven candidates are running for County Board of Education, and voters can choose four. Candidates include Keith Branch, Jamie Guerrero, Dade Sherman, Peggy Smith, Dave Tuttle, Donna White, and Mike Wooten.

As of Thursday, more than 30,000 people had already voted in the early election in Johnston County with those voters evenly divided among Democrats and Republicans.. As of Thursday, the number of Republican voters was 12,877. The number of Democratic voters was 12,807.

Now that early voting, which also includes one-stop registration and voting, has ended, voters who have not already registered to vote in Johnston County can not vote in the general election.
