November 4 Election Results

Currituck County Board of Commissioners Adds New Members

Voters in Currituck County participated in a historic election on November 4, 2008, both in the national election for President and in local races as the county's Board of Commissioners expands from five members to seven.

Incumbent Republican Commissioner Owen Etheridge won his re-election bid in District 4, and three new members gained seats in other races. Republican Vance Aydlett, Jr. was elected in District 1, Republican John D. Rorer won election in District 2, and Republican Paul O'Neal was elected to the Board's new At-Large seat.

The four newly elected commissioners will join three current members - Democratic Commissioners Barry Nelms, Gene Gregory and Janet Taylor - to form Currituck's first seven-member Board of Commissioners. The new Board of Commissioners will officially be seated in December 2008.
