The big day is finally here…you have just over 12 hours left to cast your vote for the people who will work for you in Washington, Raleigh, and right here at home in the mountains. Today’s election is a huge deal; it may not have the glamour or the excitement of 2008 but it’s just as important for the future direction of our country. Today is the day that no matter who you are — rich or poor, black or white, gay or straight — your opinion matters just as much as everyone else’s.
Not sure where to vote? The State Board of Elections has a useful tool that tells you. Click here and toggle “Show me my voter information” and enter your name and county (birthday is optional) and it’ll give you your precinct number and location. You have from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm today.
Here’s a list of all the precincts. Remember, polls open at 6:30 am and close at 7:30 pm. If you’re still in line when they close, they have to let you vote.
