Although these are classified as Non-Partisan races, it’s important to support our Democratic candidates. Democrats currently comprise the majority on the Canton and Clyde boards.
Voting is restricted to those voters who have lived within the city limits of the municipalities for at least 30 days before Election Day. If you pay a water bill to the Town of Canton, Clyde or Maggie Valley, you are most likely eligible to vote for Town Board candidates.
