One-stop voting for the Asheville primary election started today, and voters can register and vote at the same time.
Those interested in getting a head start on the primary for Asheville’s mayoral and City Council races (no other Buncombe municipalities hold primaries) can head to the Buncombe County Election Services building at 189 College St. downtown. Ballots are available for all registered Asheville residents, and those who still need to register can do so before casting a vote.
B.C. Election Services is the only location for early voting in the primary. Four new early voting stops will be in place for the general election as a result of a recent Asheville City Council vote.
Early voting is available 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday until Oct. 3, with the polls open that day until 1 p.m. For more information, call 250-4200 or click here.
