ARE YOU READY TO VOTE? Are your friends/colleagues/family informed?
NOW is the time to make sure all of our politically kindred spirits are as informed as possible, because some folks may be sending in their absentee ballots within the next two weeks. As we know, this election is soooooo important!!!
Here are some things to know and/or share with others:
1. Sample ballots in Buncombe County are ready to be viewed. Here’s the link to look up yours: https://vt.ncsbe.gov/
RegLkup/ You can also make sure you are registered and see where you’ll need to vote if you wait until Election Day.
2. But it is recommended that you vote early, either by absentee ballot if you are nervous about Covid or at an early voting site. Here is the list of Early Voting Sites and times: https://www.
buncombecounty.org/common/ election/early-voting- schedule.pdf Note that some of the usual locations like the West and North Asheville Libraries will not be early voting sites this year due to a need for larger venues for social distancing.
3. It is SO important to vote the whole ballot.
4. Please don’t waste votes on candidates that don’t have an ounce of a chance. Vote for the Democrats!
“For information on registering to vote or voting by mail go to this website, http://www.ncvoter.

Have fun voting and helping to get out the vote for the Democrats.
Thanks for doing whatever you can!
