The primaries are here; where to vote early

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 10:42 AM

From our friends at Drinking Liberally Charlotte:

This is a friendly reminder that the 2010 primaries are already here and that you can vote early if you don't want to brave longer lines on May 4th. Why is the 2010 primary important to you?

Well I'm glad I asked for you! The 2010 primaries will help us vet candidates we think are most viable in the crucial 2010 election coming later this year! If we let ourselves rest on our haunches then we risk allowing candidates that may do well in a poorly attended primary and not stand a chance in a general election... become our representative candidate in a general election. While we refrain from mentioning particular candidates and taking sides, you can imagine there are countless examples of this at just about every level of government.

So what you need to know; early voting is taking place at only one site; the Hal Marshal Annex, 618 North College Street, First Floor. It began yesterday, April 15th and will continue until April 23rd with the operating hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. After a weekend break it continues from April 26th to April 30th from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The final day of early voting is Saturday, May 1st from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

So there you go; vote early, vote emphatically, and come out next Wednesday, April 21st for our 7 p.m. meeting at Dilworth Bar and Grill to talk about who to emphatically vote for!

So, who's running? Good question. The answer depends on where you live.

You can check out the North Carolina State Board of Elections for a 2010 candidate list here. They even offer a voting guide. But, then what? Check out the candidates websites, Facebook pages and Twitter streams. Heck, call their offices and ask the questions that are important to you.

Then, go vote. If voting at the Hal Marshal Annex doesn't work for you, your regular polling place will be open on May 4th.
