Low voter turnout expected
By MICHAEL WADE
Local elections officials are expecting only
about a 35 percent turnout of Orange
County registered voters in local elections
Tuesday, with an even lower figure for the
county's rural precincts.
The polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to
7:30 p.m. (see box for locations of polling
Chapel Hill and Carrboro voters will
chose candidates for four vacancies on each
town's board of aldermen. Seven candidates
are running for vacancies on the Chapel Hill
, board, while eight candidates are running for
seats on the Carrboro board.
Carrboro voters w ill also choose a mayor
between two candidates. Six candidates are
running for three vacant seats on the Chapel
Hill-Carrboro school board.
Voters also will vote on five amendments
to the state's constitution and two state bond
"1 think (voter turnout) is going to be
lower than usual," said Joe Nassif, Orange
County Elections Board chairperson.
Nassif said Friday local voter turnout is
usually 5 to 7 percent higher than statewide
voter turnout, which is expected to be only
He said the voter turnout figure for the
county will be lower because fewer voters in
the rural precincts, who will vote only on the
state issues, will go to the polls.

A UNC physics professor, Silver has
served on the board since 1975. He has been
involved in local Democratic groups and
town government groups. He is a past
member of the town's school board and
transportation board. He is now chairperson
of the county's Recreation Facilities
Committee and the county's Energy Task
Silver supports a Cane Creek reservoir
and the drilling of wells as solutions to the
town's water problem but is skeptical of the
proposed Jordan lake and the Hillsborough
pipeline. He said he feels the bus system is
sound, but he sees improvement within the
system by increasing ridership through
rerouting and rescheduling.
Silver proposes an advisory committee to
the chancellor to deal with town-University
problems. He has headed the town's
investigation into the use of meters to
enforce the noise ordinance.
Silver says he has the greatest experience
of the candidates and cites his record in
public service as evidence of his ability.
An employee of the state Department of
Labor, Thorpe is a member of the local inter
church council, United Fund, KiwanisClub,
the county's Aging Advisory Committee,
Mental Health Association and the South
Orange Black Caucus.
Thorpe supports the Hillsborough
pipeline and the proposed Jordan Lake, the
latter more for recreational reasons than for
water supply reasons. He said he feels having
knowledgeable people at OWASA is of vital
concern. Thorpe said he feels the present bus
service is inadequate, and he supports
increased rush-hour service.
Thorpe has made "communication" a
theme in his oampaign. In a candidates
forum in Howell Hall last week, he
mentioned posting relevant town
information in dorms and apartments. He
also said he feels his experience with the
Department of Labor would be helpful in
Nassif said a lack of campaign activity
before the election also may lower voter tur

interest," he said.

called for." Porto is a budget analyst for
North Carolina and is running as an
According to Porto, the town should work
with the planners of the 1-40 extension that
goes through Orange County. Porto said the
extension is needed to connect Carrboro to
the Research Triangle, saying that he feels
town residents have lost their influence with
the Department of Transportation by
refusing to accept the 1-40 extension.
A member of the Allied Citizens of
Carrboro since its inception, Mary Riggsbee;
is strongly opposed to students voting in'
local elections. She said students are usually
more interested in a single issue rather than
what is best for the town as a whole.
Riggsbee, a switchboard operator for
UNC, accused students of "voting and
running" on bond referendums. She said
students receive benefits from the bonds and
then move to another town before they have
to pay for their full share of the cost of the
Riggsbee also opposes the bus system in
Carrboro. Residents turned down
referendums on the bus system in 1971, 1973
and 1976, and she said the board ignored
these votes when it approved the bus system.
Doug Sharer is one of three incumbents
running for a spot on the board. As one of
the original members of the CCC, Sharer is
one of the strongest supporters of the bus
system. He favors expanding it to include
peak-period and night service.
Sharer received his Master's degree in
planning at UNC, and works as a
transportation planner for Durham.

Carrboro are all related to finances.
He criticized the town's contingency fund
as excessive, and said the money being held
in the contingency fund could be used to pay
for additional bus service.

UNC's financial office. Wheeler agrees with
Thomas that the fund is too large and that
some of the funds could be put into other
