There may not be any presidential candidates on the ballot, but Western North Carolina voters this year will have a chance to weigh in on a lengthy list of local and state races that could help shape the region’s course for years to come.
To help readers understand the candidates and their views, Xpress is partnering this year with a nonpartisan local nonprofit, Children First/Communities in Schools, to distribute an extensive Buncombe County Voter Guide. It includes information on various key races, such as the N.C. General Assembly and Buncombe County’s district attorney, sheriff and school board. In Buncombe County only, look for it in this week’s print edition. It’s also available online in its entirety at votebuncombe.org.
And as always, stay tuned to mountainx.com/news/politics-elections for updates from the campaign trail.
