A voter’s primer

There is an election coming up on May 8. (Early voting is from April 19 to May 5.) There are contests for the Republican primary, U.S. House of Representatives, five state offices, three Buncombe County offices and a statewide referendum on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. It’s a little complicated to know exactly which candidates you will be voting for. The easiest way to see who you will be voting for is to get your voter information from the N.C. Board of Elections website.
Here are some further instructions: Do an online search for N.C. Board of Elections. Enter your name, date of birth and county. Select “My Sample Ballot” to see exactly who you can vote for.

This is your chance to make a difference. Vote early and often!
