Election Day is 51 days away … Sometimes I forget how active candidates can be and how much controversy can be exhibited. And, begins with candidates for the top office in the nation … Pray for all…
Some notes of interest related to the North Carolina election…
October 9, 2020. Voter registration deadline for the 2020 general election…
October 15 … Early voting period for the 2020 general election begins. Eligible individuals may register to vote during this period.
My guess is, unaffiliated voters will likely determine new office-holders…
As of September 12, 2020 … there were 22,370 eligible voters in Bladen…
Democrats – 10,700
Republicans – 4,677
Unaffiliated – 6,921
Others – 72
In North Carolina…
Democrats – 2,552,636
Republicans – 2,141,306
Unaffiliated – 2,374,167
Others – 49,501
There are over 7 million voters in the state and in 50 counties in the state there are more Democrats than Republicans … and in the other 50, just the opposite … And both political parties are ‘super’ active … and will be thru November 3, maybe beyond…
My uneducated guess … very few who have not made up their mind about who they will vote for … and the national election will be very close … in the Tar Heel state.
Vote as I do, for the individuals you think can do the best job for all … period.
