You can look this data up by precinct level. You don't have to speculate. It's all on the NC State Board of Elections website.

We just purchased a home a couple of miles outside Lenoir city limits. I'm not into politics but would say I probably lean more libertarian. That being said I've had no issues here with anyone. Also before coming here we would travel around the country in our RV for 3-5 months out of the year since like 2017. We have been to most states from the most liberal to the most conservative and have never had any issues. That being said if you are someone who loses their mind if they see a Trump sign or a BLM sign then you might have problems in a LOT of places. I have personally never had anyone come up to me and ask about my political leanings anywhere we have ever been. I also don't attend political events, protests etc.

If you don't advertise your politics then I see no reason why anyone would think you are too liberal or conservative. I exercise my politics at the voting booth and that's it.

All that being said we love the area! We are 15-20min to Morganton, Hickory, Blowing Rock etc. Personally we went with Lenoir mainly just because we were able to find property that met most all our needs for a price we could afford. We looked at houses in Morganton and maybe just one in Hickory but those just did not work out in the end. However I think if we would have found property in either of those that matches what we have here in Lenoir we would have no problem living in either Hickory or Morganton.

Also I saw someone mention Root and Vine OMG! We just found this place last week and it's our new favorite spot! It's probably a good think they are only open 3 days a week... so goood!

Be careful with these maps, though--the colors are based ONLY on actual Election Day data (note the very small numbers if you hover over each precinct). I have written to them many times to ask them to update based on full (mail-in, early voting) data but get no response. The tabs show the actual full results, and you'll notice how small the Election Day totals are compared to early/mail-in.

A fully up-to-date map (not just of NC) is here. You can zoom in on the areas you need:

We have a family home in Boone for whatever that’s worth.
I live in granite falls, Caldwell County. From the research that I have done on the town governments in Granite Falls and Caldwell County, you can't even trust looking into them and expecting to find a local person that isn't under 80 and hasn't been working as mayor for 60 years. The town council building is vacant and has signs on the door about future land development from a company that sells municipal software that anyone can buy and use from anywhere in the world. This specific company, metroquest, is out of CANADA, And has wasted lots of taxpayer money on bull**** infrastructure. I guess the town sold out to these "Canadians". It's
****ing
Scary in granite falls nc.

Granite Falls has been taken over by Canadians? What on earth are you talking about. I’d actually like to think anything interesting is happening in Granite.

So everyone there is less than 80 years old and they have all worked as Mayor since they were 20? Or is that demographic profile just Canadian disinformation?

Yes, the town only allows 80+ year olds and they all claim to be the mayor but strangely all have a Canadian accent…

The easiest answer to your question can be found by looking at who the locals vote into office.
