Welcome to our 2014 Election Night Results Thread!
We're tracking the results as they come in. You can view Orange County results on the State Board of Elections website, or check out our charts below, which we will be updating as results come in.
Our charts below now report all unofficial results from all 44 Orange County precincts. Results are not official until they are canvassed.
In the Sheriff's race, Charles Blackwood barely bests David Caldwell, but as Blackwood is well under 40% of the vote, this race is heading for a July runoff. Caldwell has indicated to WCHL that he intends to request that runoff.
Mark Chilton beats incumbent Deborah Brooks and challenger Sara Stephens in the Register of Deeds race, and narrowly avoids a runoff with 42.5% of the vote.
Incumbent Barry Jacobs gets another term for his at-large County Commission seat.
And incumbent Earl McKee gets another term in his District 2 seat.
For the Orange County School Board, incumbents Donna Coffey and Brenda Stephens will return to the Board with newcomers Tom Carr and Rosa Williams.
And in Carrboro, Bethany Chaney will fill the empty seat left vacant by now-Mayor Lydia Lavelle.
