The Board of Education will consider any write-in candidate’s qualifications. In case of a tie, the county employee will decide the winner.
The county seat is Smithfield, NC. The city has always been a thriving community, with many businesspeople setting up home in the city. The historic downtown area has many large nineteenth century Italianate houses.

A new city council will help the county make decisions and plan for future growth. The council is comprised of six people: the Mayor of Garner, Jessica Bryan, Saedie G. Daniel, Olivia Grygoruk, Jacob M. Santoro, and Kirk A. Schroer. The board of education also meets once a month.
