Triad City Beat’s Election Guide features stories on the US Senate race between Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis, the 6th Congressional District contest between Mark Walker and Laura Fjeld and the High Point City Council, with a rundown of a whole lot of other important races and ballot initiatives. Early voting begins on Thursday. Go vote!
