THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
WE DID IT! WE WON RE-ELECTION TO  THE CABARRUS COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
It was a nail-biter but we pulled it off and won re-election for another four year term on the school board.  
When early voting totals were announced, I was in 5th place and down over 1,000 votes to the candidate in 4th place.  Election day precinct results were announced about every half hour and my deficit continued to get smaller until the final ones were released and I jumped into fourth place with a small 300 vote lead to claim a seat again on the Cabarrus County Board of Education.  It was a strong showing on election day and a decent showing for one-stop voting. I'll need to work on the absentee mail in voters if I ever run again. 
I want to express my sincere appreciation to every one who voted for me. We needed every vote this time.  Also a huge thank you to all those that supported our campaign in so many ways, many giving of their time to help out at a poll on election day.
I am honored to be giving another opportunity to help lead our school system to new levels and overcoming the challenges that Covid had brought.  I promise to give my all and to listen to you, our stakeholders, before making key decisions. 
To the other candidates on the ballot, thank you for caring and for running this cycle.  For those who will be joining me on the board, congratulations! I look forward to working with you and finding solutions to the challenges we face. To those that didn't make it, hold your head up, there are thousands that appreciated you running and supported your message and priorities. Stay involved, your perspective is needed and valued. 
 
To my colleagues who will be leaving the board after this month, thank you for your service to the students, staff, and families of Cabarrus County Schools. I've learned for each of you and have appreciated the time serving together.  I know you will continue to do good things in this community because you have a servant heart.
To my family, thank you for your unwavering support, help, and sacrifices you have made to all me to serve this God directed mission as a school board member.  I love you always.
God Bless you all!

Rob Walter Files for Re-election for Cabarrus County School Board

 

With his family on Friday, December 6th, 2019,  a significant date  to Rob as it would have been his parents 50th anniversary, he filed paperwork to run for reelection to the Cabarrus County Board of Education. Rob will be on the ballot as Robert (Rob) Walter in November 2020 since there is no primary for School Board races since they are non-partisan in Cabarrus County. 

Rob had the following message to voters and his supporters: 

"I'm excited to announce that I will be running for re-election to the Cabarrus County School Board in 2020. Running for reelection will take a lot of resources, time, and effort that I'm willing to put in. Being successful takes a team and I will need your help, support, and vote. Please consider getting involved: Volunteer, put out a sign, contribute financially, and help get out our message to voters.

Thank you for your prayers and for the support from my family, friends, and CCC stakeholders. "

Signs, Signs, and More Signs

 

Today is the official day candidate signs can be placed on Roadway right of ways.  I'll be placing about 200 signs over the next couple weeks. If you would like to help, or know of a good place where a sign will get a lot of looks, please let me know. 

It is against the law to remove or deface a legally placed sign so if you see anyone tampering with one, please let the police know what you saw if someone is observed tampering with them. Also, its helpful to let the candidate know where you saw one disappear so that they can replaced if possible. 

 

Signs can also still be placed in yards or businesses that approve the placement.

 

After the election, Candidate have 10 days to remove all their signs from the roadways.  Your help is appreciated with that task if you can pick one up, let me know and I'll come get them from you to possible use again in the future.

Get to know your Candidates

 

Have you seen your sample ballot?  You can take a look at your ballot and then learn about your candidates by visiting the Cabarrus County Board of Elections website:  https://cabarruscounty.us/resources/sample-ballots

Once you know who you are voting for please take time to research the candidates so you can vote for someone who shares your values and views that can represent you in that office.

For the Cabarrus County School Board election, you will find 12 candidates on the back sider of your ballot.  The last name on the ballot is not actively seeking a seat anymore. The other 10 do want your vote and most of them have either social media page, a website, or have participated in a number of the candidate forums (recorded on youtube) for you to get a feel for who that are and what their values, passions, and priorities are. 

In addition to myself, there are two other incumbents running (Cindy Fertenbaugh and David Harrison) and one former school board member (Tim Furr) on the ballot in addition to one experienced candidate and several newcomers.  You may vote for up to four candidates.  I will not endorse any other candidates as we are all competing and if reelected, I will need to serve with and develop a working relations with.

Early Voting Starts Thursday, October 15th at Four Locations in Cabarrus County

 

One-stop absentee voting (commonly known as "early voting") allows any registered voter to cast an absentee ballot in person on select days prior to Election Day. Unlike on Election Day, when registered voters can only vote at their specific precinct, one-stop voting allows registered voters to vote at any one-stop absentee voting site in the County. One-stop sites will have all the ballot styles for a given election at each site.

Several of the early voting locations are different this year so that social distancing can take place. Voters are asked to wear a mask when voting this year.  The Four locations will generally be open from 8 AM until 7:30 PM weekdays, 8 AM until 3 PM Saturdays, and new this year, Sunday hours from 1 PM to 5 PM. 

The Early Voting Locations  are: 

Northern Plaza (old Northern Tool space) -    840 Concord PKWY N.,  Concord, NC 28027

Cabarrus Arena-                                              -   4751 NC HWY 49,  Concord, NC 28025

Embassy Suites                                               -    5400 JOHN Q. HAMMONS DR NW, Concord, NC 28027

Kannapolis Train Depot                                -  201 S MAIN ST,  Kannapolis, NC 28081

If you have time during any of these 17 days and would like to help our our campaign by greeting voters at one of these locations and encouraging them to "Vote for Rob" would be greatly appreciated.  Send me a message with times and I'll provide details.
