Who will win the ground game today getting voters to the polls for the Wake County school board elections?
As noted in today's article, both political parties and a number of left-leaning and right-leaning groups have been trying to turn out the vote. In this off-year election, something as low as a 20 percent turnout would be really high.
Mack Paul, chairman of the Wake County Democratic Party, said they're close to their goal of raising $85,000 as part of their coordinated campaign to turn out the vote and retake the school board. He said the money has allowed them to hire paid campaign staff and open field offices.
