RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Local government has a major impact on the citizenry, but few residents bother to contact their public officials. That's the conclusion of a recent survey from the 

The National Research Center (NRC).
 
NRS data shows that just 19 percent of Americans report contacting their local officials in the past year. Three of four -- 76 percent -- told surveyers they had not attended a local public meeting over the past 12 months.
 
Those with higher incomes and those who've lived in an area for  a longer period of time are more likely to be engaged, according to the survey.
 
The survey can be found at http://www.governing.com/topics/politics/gov-national-survey-shows-citizens-most-vocal-active-in-local-government.html#data.
 
The survey was compiled for Governing magazine.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - It was established back in 1935, but Durham County's gun registry has come to an end, thanks to a bill introduced by state Sen. Mike Woodard of Durham that was passed and became law in June.

 
Carolina Journal reports that the county must now figure out what to do with the thousands of gun owners' personal information that had been compiled under the law. The newspaper quoted a local official as saying the county is inquiring what to do with the Administrative Office of the Courts.
 
Durham's gun roll was the only gun registration system in the state.
