Get Out and Vote!
While voting itself can be an arduous process (the ballots are very long for this particular election – please make yourself aware of ALL of the races and issues that you’ll be voting on), there are some things that you can do to make the process easier. As a Precinct Judge, I’ve worked many elections, and here are some suggestions I have:
The first is to VOTE EARLY. In North Carolina, early voting starts on October 23rd and ends on November 1st. To find out where to “early vote” and the hours, go to http://www.ncsbe.gov/webapps/os_sites/ and enter your County. Pretty simple! The best thing about early voting is that you can go to any early voting site, no matter where you live in that County. But you must stay in the County where you’re registered.
While you’re at the website, go to https://www.ncsbe.gov/webapps/voter_search/ and enter your name and County, and you’ll find a multitude of information. The most important things here are your precinct, your polling place, and a Sample Ballot. On Election Day, you MUST vote at your precinct. In past elections, voters could vote a “provisional ballot” at a precinct that wasn’t their home precinct. I’m paraphrasing this, but the law now says that “provisional ballots” cast out of “convenience or necessity” (meaning not in your home precinct) will probably not be counted. Yet another reason to vote early – especially if it is difficult to get to your home precinct on Election Day.

It’s that time of year when the various associations of new home builders around our Triangle community open up several of the homes they’ve built to the public for touring. This gives the building companies of these new homes a chance to showcase their product, but it also gives future (and current) home buyers an […]

Real estate agents really know their communities…and we’re not just talking about the statistics on home sales or home prices either. In order to best serve their clients, they need to know their communities inside and out, backwards and forwards, and every way in between. Many of our Fonville Morisey Sales Associates spend time in […]
