Welcome to the Holly Springs Deep Dive Podcast! It’s election season and you know how much I love talking to candidates so YOU can make a well-informed decision when you cast your ballot.
This week, I’m releasing interviews with candidates for the North Carolina Senate, District 17 seat. The incumbent is Sydney Batch, and the challenger is Mark Cavaliero.
The show notes for each candidate’s episode include all of their campaign pages as well as links to their campaign finance reports.
Early voting starts on Thursday Oct. 20 through Sat. Nov. 5. The Hunt Center in Holly Springs is one of the early voting locations.
A link to check your registration status, find out where your polling place is and view your sample ballot is readytovote.com and is listed in the show notes. You can register to vote in person during early voting, in person at the election office, online through the DMV or by mail. The deadline for all but registering during early voting is October 14. You can request an absentee ballot as late as Nov. 1. I’ll share a link helping you with all of that as well.
