Amendment 1 Drawing Voters, Vandalism PDF Print

The Amendment One issue seems to be drawing interest both to the polls and on the streets.  A number of regional stories have told of vandalism to signs—even churches—with the messages often altered and signs run over or removed. Local High Country pro amendment supporters have reported that their signs seem to be targeted and they have asked for police to check intersection cameras for evidence in these cases.  Hearing the local reports, I easily found downed signs in and around Boone.  Elections officials said earlier this week that the amendment is drawing a good number of early voters a dozen days from the election, a Civitas vote tracker showing over 1300 voters casting ballots so far in Watauga, around 500 in Ashe, with no report out of Avery.  The issue of vandalized signage may cause the District Attorney’s office to issue a statement, according to one source.
The election is May 8th, and early voting goes through next Saturday, May 5th, ending at 1pm.
