Thanks. Someone told me that I couldn't, but I will now.

As an unaffiliated you can vote on the amendment, and you can vote in either the democratic or republican primary (only one) if your choosing.

I have been unaffiliated voter for years, and might even vote for the least electable candidate if there is no primary for the candidate of my choice.

This amendment would be a slam dunk if only knuckle dragging republicans could vote, and having it during what is mostly a republican primary was the plan from the get go. That's why it is important that everyone votes, because all registered voters are eligible.

Thanks!

Yes, I saw that that was their plan, assuming that Bev would run again.

I believe that they have reapportioned you into my US House district. (District 10) My aim is to vote against McHenry. If I vote in the Republican primary, I can vote against him. If I vote in the Democratic primary, I can vote for the strongest opponent. I've heard that your mayor is running for the spot on the Democratic side. What's your view on that aspect of this sorry mess?

Yea, I'm also now in district 10 thanks to republican gerrymandering. Asheville and Gastonia have nothing in common.

I hope this has been covered already but I'm not reading through 180+ posts to find it, so...

Have ANY of the several candidates for Governor taken a position against?
I haven't seen anything whatsoever to recommend any of them otherwise...
so was hoping maybe one at least had the guts to take the tough position.

thanks

Here's a tip off for you. Cleveland County is majority Democrat. Belmont & SE Gastonia have a lot of transplants. Lincoln County is fairly red, but there are a lot of transplants east of Lincolnton.

Let's put it this way, McHenry came to Kings Mountain for a town meeting last summer & there were police posted to keep the peace. (He's that popular here.)

It was discussed in democrat governors debate and all 3 are against as well as Senator Hagan. McCrory is for.
Not surprising since this is unwanted Republican legislation.

Yeah, Lt. Gov. Dalton (D) opposes the Amendment. He's the only one I could find who stated his opposition on his website.

Searching it looks like many local governments are ducking this issue, but I have found the following:

Winston-Salem city council won't vote until 5/7
Durham City Council voted unanimously to oppose
Asheville City Council voted unanimously to oppose
Gaston County - support
Greensboro - opposed
Raleigh - opposed
Chapel Hill - opposes


Any others?
