NEW BERN, N.C. (WITN) - Voters in one Eastern Carolina city are heading back to the polls to decide who will be their next mayor.

Early voting began this morning at the Craven County Board of Elections for the New Bern mayor’s run-off election.

In addition to the mayor’s race, voters will also be deciding who will be their next alderman in Ward 1 & Ward 2 in the city.

Early voting runs through July 23rd, while the actual election day is on July 26th.
