141022_cover_illustration_2000x1500We’re fast approaching Election Day in a midterm with contours similar to 2010. That was the last time a US Senate race was at the top of the ballot in North Carolina. But the terrain is different this year. 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!
