With totals in from 94 of 96 Buncombe County precincts, Democrats appear to have won in virtually every local race.
New and still unofficial totals from the Buncombe County Board of Elections indicate that local Democrats have likely won every one of their contested races, from state legislative seats to the Board of Commissioners. Likewise, Buncombe voters chose Democrats in the race for president, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. Congress, and the governor’s office.
Look for more details on each of those races here soon.
