YES! YES! THE VOTERS HAVE SPOKEN!

Alright everybody the results are in here in sunny Asheboro and all 4 referendums have passed!!!. Out of the 12,205 registered voters in the city of Asheboro 6,644 cast a ballot in the alcohol referendum 54.44% of the registered voters. On one hand it is good that so many people participated in the vote, and in another way it is very sad because more people participated in this vote than in the Primary and that election chose the 2 main candidates of the presidency of the United States! and I also think more people participated than they did in the local elections. I don't understand that part it is very important to stay informed and always vote. I hope all the first time voters will continue to vote and not stop with this one election. All that being said I am so happy that in a matter of weeks I wont have to go to Greensboro for a margarita when I can afford to go out to eat and can buy my wine at my local grocery store.
