Buncombe Emergency Call To Action: Call State BOE. No Sunday Early Voting. Maintain 10 Early Voting Sites
Do you want to make sure that our GOP elected officials, like Rep Mark Meadows get re-elected in November?? What about electing GOP candidates to our local government and to Raleigh?
The Left is trying to undermine our elections all over NC which includes right here in Buncombe county. The Lefties showed up at Board of Elections (BOE) meetings all over the state on Tuesday, 7/17 to lobby for Sunday voting (which the Buncombe BOE in their infinite wisdom INCLUDED in their original early voting plan!)
But what makes this even worse in Buncombe, instead of 10 early voting sites, one board members wants 11 which means tens of thousands of your tax $$$ to fund the extra site. " ... To staff each early voting site in Buncombe County, it costs nearly $20,000 to pay workers, plus more for overtime pay, which is likely given the longer hours, Velez said. The cost to operate each additional early voting site comes to roughly $40,000. ..."
The current law says *( See below Numbered Memo 2018-06) when the county Board of Elections cannot unanimously decide on their early voting plan, the State Board of Elections gets to decide it. (Thank Raleigh for not changing this law. We are now stuck with it. Changing it needs to be a demand on our Republican legislators going forward. An issue for another day!)
Our only recourse is to lobby by calling and emailing the State Board of Elections and tell them NO TO SUNDAY VOTING AND TO MAINTAIN THE 10 ORIGINAL EARLY VOTING SITES.
What does Sunday voting mean?
Sunday voting means mass busing from churches, picking up homeless, the disenfranchised, and illegals. Without voter ID, all an 'illegal voter' has to do is easily find and 'take' the name of a person who has not voted for a few years, show up at a poll, and vote! This is right out of Saul Alisky's Rules for Radicals and the George Soros playbook. (And, by the way, Voter ID amendment is on the November ballot!) We've much at stake including the re-election of our Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jackson and conservative candidates)
Right now, WE need to lobby the State Board of Elections to DENY EARLY VOTING ON SUNDAY AND TO MAINTAIN THE 10 ORIGINAL EARLY VOTING SITES IN BUNCOMBE COUNTY.

to demand that they approve Buncombe County's early voting plan by maintaining Buncombe's ten early voting sites and eliminating Sunday early voting
Adding an 11th voting site is fiscally irresponsible and an unwanted burden to tax payers. The cost to operate each additional early voting site is estimated to cost $40,000.
Sunday voting is not only an added burden to BOE workers and an added expense to our county, but an affront to our Sabbath, traditions, and family time. Eighteen days of early voting is more than enough time to find time to vote. Sunday voting is an unwanted government intrusion upon my time that is better spent with my family and at peace at church.
Thank you. (They may want your address so give it to them.)

Buncombe Early Voting News;
Instead of 10 early voting sites, one board member wants 11 which means more of your tax $$$. Buncombe Elections Board at Odds Over Downtown Early Voting Sites. Call the State Board of Elections and tell them to maintain the 10 original sites.
