Early voting starts Oct. 18, sites announced for Buncombe County

From the Buncombe County website:

Early voting begins Thursday, Oct. 18, and ends Saturday, Nov. 3, at 1 p.m.  During Early Voting, Buncombe County voters may cast their ballots for the 2012 General Election at any of the sites listed on the list attached below.

New residents of Buncombe County can register and vote the same day if they can provide proof of residence with their correct name and address. Current voters may update their registration info with name and/or address changes.

Early voting is a great way to avoid the long lines of Election Day. Remember, voters can vote at any Early Voting site in the county. This is very different than Election Day in which voters must vote in their assigned precinct.

The hours for Early Voting will be as follows:

Monday – Friday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Saturday – Oct. 20 & 27: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Saturday – Nov. 3:  8 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Four libraries will also offer Sunday voting on October 21 & 28 from 1 to 6 p.m.  They are:

North Asheville Library
South Asheville Library
West Asheville Library
Black Mountain Library

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community.

Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service.
