Pittsboro Municipal Election: In-Person Voting starts October 14th
The Pittsboro Municipal election is upon us. This year residents of Pittsboro will elect their Mayor and two Town Commissioners. The Mayor serves a two year term, Town Commissioners serve four year terms. Only registered voters who live inside the city limits may vote. Just because your mailing address is Pittsboro, does not mean you are in the town.
The election is non-partisian. All that really means is there is no primary.
