Early voting is our best chance to let every Wake voter know they have a real choice. A smiling volunteer handing out candidate literature at an early voting site has proven to provide a bump of 4 to 9 percent in our vote totals in previous elections.
Every voter in Wake will have the opportunity to choose at least four Libertarians. Most voters in southern Wake will get to choose six Libertarian candidates in all the major races, from president to state legislator.
So we're focusing our early voting effort in Southern Wake, at these sites: the W.E. Hunt Recreation Center, Holly Springs; W.O. Council Gym, Fuquay-Varina; Apex Community Center; Wake Tech South Campus, and; the Cary Senior Center.
These sites include overlapping districts, U.S Congress 2, state Senate 17, and portions of state House 11, 36, 37, and 41. In two of these races, the establishment party candidates are polling within five points of each other, and in another, it’s a dead heat.
Libertarian candidates will have an impact on the outcome of these races.
Early voting hours are:
Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Saturday: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Sunday: 1 to 6 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 31 (Last day): 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We need people to work the early voting site near you for as many days as they can and for as many hours as they can so voters will know they have an alternative to the duopoly.
