Are you as an informed voter as you’d like to be — or need to be?

Every election is important, but arguably, it is our local elections — our county commissioners, our sheriff and other local posts — that touch us most personally on a day-to-day basis.

Because of this, it’s vital that we know who we are voting for, and, regardless of party affiliation, what those candidates stand for.

Beginning last week and continuing up until the election, the Ashe Post & Times is making it easier to get to know the people and issues behind the names on your Nov. 6 Ashe County ballot. While we are not limiting our preview of the election to local candidate Q & A’s, it is in these preview stories that you will learn about local issues and how our candidates would impact these were they to be voted into office.

Voting is a true civic duty, and one not to be undertaken without doing your homework. At the Ashe Post & Times we are proud to partner with our community in this most important of efforts.
