Many early voters have a horror story to tell of long lines. But that’s what you get when Mecklenburg County sees it’s largest turnout ever for early voting. Mid Saturday afternoon, I had to go to the Main Library in downtown Charlotte to complete some research. Passing Plaza Road library, I saw a line snaking out the door down the side of the building.Arriving downtown, I decided out of curiosity to see how long the line there was to vote. To my surprise, there were only five people waiting to in line. As a person who has zero patience for lines of any kind, I wasted no time getting in that line. It took me more time to go through the eight page ballot than it did to stand in line. What a pleasant surprise.

It’s leaf blowing and raking season in North Carolina! What to do with the leaves? I spoke with town hall today and they said to remember that all leaves you want picked up must be in bags. No more than 10 bags of leaves or any other yard debris will be picked up per week per household.
