[quote:Anonymous Coward 20676524:MV8yMDExOTUyXzMzODA3NDQ4XzM2MzcyNUEy] I live in Asheville North Carolina and I totally agree no straight ticket. That being said, I will be saddened of my vote for Obama come November. Obama won N.C by 14,000 in 2008, he won my county by 17,000. I heard that on the local news this evening. I will be voting primarily a republican ticket, since I am republican. I am saddened my party caved in by nominating a liberal candidate under the guise of "most" electable. When it comes between 2 liberals for president, I vote democrate out of spite. [/quote]
If you just vote a straight Republican ticket in NC
you will not vote for Gov. Romney for President
See election law at [

If using the "straight ticket" option on your ballot - vote in three steps:
1. Vote for Governor Romney for president
2. Vote Straight ticket option
3. Then vote for Judicial Contests and local non partisan contests.
North Carolina Straight Ticket Confusion
Voting Straight Ticket in North Carolina does NOT include the Presidential contest.
NC voters threw away 92,000 votes for President in 2004 because of confusing law. Other states report problems in ballot miscounts due to straight ticket programming errors.
"The offices of President and Vice President of the United States are not included in a Straight Party vote. This contest must be voted separately."
NC is the only state in the US where straight ticket voting does not count for President. Our state has one of the highest undervote rates for President in the Country
NC Straight Ticket Voting Facts:
President - straight ticket voting does not count for President You must vote separately for President.
Non Partisan - straight ticket doesn't count for non partisan contests (like Judicial).
Multi Seat Contests - If you vote straight ticket but you also cross over vote, your party choices are erased in that multi seat race.
You will have to go back and mark your party choices in that multi seat race.
Straight Ticket is optional. You do not have to select the "straight party". Just make your choices separately.
