As we close this month of September, we just want to take the time to thank everyone who continues to read, share and be informed by the information on this page. We encourage our fellow North Carolinians to make sure they get registered to vote by October 10 for the general election. You may not think the people on the ballot matter, but they do. This is why we write this newsletter, to make sure you are aware of all the local and state issues that can sneak up on you. Here’s a nonpartisan voter information guide.
