Go vote now

While some states are restricting voters’ rights, North Carolina has made it easier to vote. Before this year, a voter had to register 25 days before Election Day, but now North Carolina joins only eight other states (and [is] the first in the South) to allow early voting.

Our city is too important for you not to caste a VOTE. Don’t wait until Nov. 6, 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.—vote now! You can vote early [weekdays] through Nov. 2 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. [on weekdays] and Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Buncombe County Board of Elections (189 College St.) in downtown Asheville. For more information call 250-4200.

One-stop early voting means you can register to vote and vote on the same day. If you need to register, bring one of the following: N.C. driver’s license, a utility bill, bank statement, payroll check or document from a government agency.

Asheville is so important to so many of us. I gain so much of my identity from the place I live. I am so proud to say that I live in Asheville, N.C.—where the Blue Ridge mountains are mystical; the downtown architecture is phenomenal; young people, old people and freaky people feel at home; artists fill the streets; our city helps lead the nation on environmental issues (due to a progressive City Council); and people are passionate.

Please VOTE!
