Voter turnout light PDF Print

Word from Watauga polls: voter turnout has been unexpectedly light.

Over 800 people showed up for early voting in the Boone runoff, leading many to expect a large turnout today. Over 2,000 residents voted in Boone's original October election- a record.


The runoff is between planning board member Liz Aycock and incumbent councilman Dempsey Wilcox. In the October race, Aycock beat Wilcox by four votes.


Wilcox requested a revote.


Voting in Blowing Rock, Seven Devils and Beech Mountain is also "very light." 


There's still time to vote. Polls close at 7:30 p.m.
