Voters request amendment-only ballots

May 8, 2012

Nonpartisan ballots are in high demand today at Catawba County polling sites, election officials say.

The 26,000 county voters registered without a political party affiliation may choose a ballot at the polls — either Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or nonpartisan.

"The only thing on those ballots is the constitutional (marriage) amendment," said Larry Brewer, the county's elections director.

"We have run short on the nonpartisan ballot," Brewer continued. "We had to make some additional copies with a printer and send them out to precincts."

Brewer said elections officials have observed "moderate" overall voter turnout today in Catawba County.
