Democrat Carolyn M. Comer has been re-elected for Register of Deeds for Surry County.
Comer won 55.55 percent of the vote in Surry County, compared to her opponent, Todd Harris, who received 44.45 percent of the vote, according to unofficial election updates Tuesday evening.
Comer was first elected as Register of Deeds for Surry County in 2004 and has since served eight years in that capacity.
“I began this race concerned primarily with continuing to build on the advancements we’ve introduced, and our achievements in efficiently recording and safeguarding the records of the people of Surry County,” Comer said. “They’re our citizens’ most important document … their birth and death records, real estate documents, marriage certificates, military discharges and others. Caring for those valuable records and doing so in a way that still saves every tax dollar possible is so important.”
Comer, 56, is a 1974 graduate of Surry Central High School and furthered her education at both Surry Community College and NC School of Government in Chapel Hill.
