Xpress-rated: Video sneak peek at the Oct. 22 issue

Here’s a sneak preview of the Oct. 22 edition of the Mountain Xpress. This week’s issue includes our 2008 Voter Guide. Election Day is Nov. 4, but early voting began Oct. 16, and by all reports, traffic at the polls has been brisk. Here in Buncombe County, election officials are estimating that as many as 60 percent of voters will hit the polls early, opting for convenient scheduling and potentially shorter lines.

Whenever you choose to vote, the more you know about the candidates, the better. Here’s what you’ll find in our Voter Guide:

1) Frequently asked questions — and solid answers — about how to cast a vote
2) The rundown on the nonpartisan races on local ballots
3) Candidate surveys covering key issues in these races:
• U.S. Congress, 11th District
• Buncombe County Board of Commissioners
• N.C. House and Senate

We hope you’ll find our guide useful. The rest is up to you.
