Henderson County Voting Nov 2017
IF you live in any of the incorporated areas of Henderson County such as Fletcher, Flat Rock, Mills River, Hendersonville proper or Laurel Park, please note that Early Voting is occurring now.
Currently these incorporated areas are hosting Municipal Elections. These include Mayor and Council members. Your vote in these elections carry much more influence than Presidential Elections. The people that are asking for your vote are people that are your neighbors, co workers, members of your church, your community, people you meet at the grocery store, pharmacy and restaurants. These individuals have much more impact on your life than the national elections.
Therefore, please get out the vote. Please be knowledgeable of the person to whom you are voting as they will be in office for a minimum of two years. Early Voting is occurring at various locations in these communities as well as the Board of Elections.
Please note, Asheville City, hosted its city elections recently and only 12% of the people voted. Encourage your friends and neighbors to vote as these truly are the most important elections. Be aware of the recent discoveries in Buncombe County, where the County Manager managed to create huge retention and retirement bonus’s for herself and others, while the County Commissioners were caught unaware
Full voting will occur on Tuesday November 7th.
