JUNE 2010

June 6, 2010

We’ve just completed the season of North Carolina Primary elections. Although there were several close races, there will only be one runoff in Henderson County. On June 22, there will be a statewide primary runoff election for the Democratic US Senate seat. To be eligible to vote in this runoff a voter may be an unaffiliated voter who DID NOT vote in the May Primary, or an unaffiliated voter who chose to vote in the Democratic primary. In addition, all registered Democrats whether they voted in the May Primary or not, are eligible to vote in the Primary runoff in June. Check the Board of Elections website, www.hendersoncountync.org/elections for any other information about this primary season.

June 13, 2010

The June 22 Primary runoff to determine the Democratic nominee for the US Senator seat on the November ballot will follow all the rules and regulations of the May Primary. Absentee ballots will be accepted; One Stop Voting will be offered at the Board of Elections office and on June 22, all precincts will function as they did for the May Primary. Participation is limited in this primary runoff. However, the opportunity to vote will be as easy and as accessible as it was for the May Primary. Please take the opportunity to vote if you are an eligible voter in this election. Poll workers will be organized and ready to help you exercise your voting right on June 22. For more information check the Board of Elections website, www.hendersoncountync.org/elections

June 20, 2010

As we prepare for the primary runoff on June 22, we are reminded that the General Election will be November 2, 2010. The primary elections were hard fought. The media was awash with ads and talk shows, discussing every aspect of the elections and the scenarios possible depending on the outcomes. To be prepared for the same media blitz for the general election, study the candidates and the issues. Use every opportunity to verify information. One website that investigates statements made in the heat of election battles is www.factcheck.org. Use this site to check the accuracy of political allegations and ads. Prepare for this election with correct information not by relying on emotional triggers that have no basis in fact or reality.

June 27, 2010

As we learned in our recent May primary, those who show up select our local, state and national leaders. In the May Primary only 17% of the Henderson County registered voters participated in the selection of the leaders for their party of registration to be on the November ballot for the general election. Those who show up are participating in democracy. Being a voter carries responsibilities which include: ability to listen and to evaluate political claims and promises; being able to hear facts and not be led by emotional triggers that use buzzwords to speak to an issue or misrepresent the facts of an issue. Listen, learn and prepare for the general election. Don’t be manipulated by quick phrases and unsubstantiated rumor or accusations. Democracy deserves better than that.
