A preview of Tuesday's general election in Mecklenburg County and North Carolina
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.
In North Carolina, voters will elect candidates to the U.S. Senate, U.S. House, the N.C. Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals and the General Assembly, among other judicial and local seats.
Democrat Cheri Beasley is running for a U.S. Senate seat against Republican Ted Budd. For U.S. House seats in the Charlotte area, Democrat Alma Adams is running for re-election in District 12, and Jeff Jackson, a Democrat, is running against Republican Pat Harrigan in District 14.
Republicans are vying for a supermajority in the North Carolina General Assembly, which would give them the power to override vetoes from Gov. Cooper, a Democrat.
In Mecklenburg County, six seats on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board of Education are up for grabs, and the board will be charged with addressing poor test scores as well as choosing a new superintendent.
