  • Davie County could have three ABC stores, if Mocksville voters approve a ballot question on whether to allow one in town.

    Voters in the Town of Mocksville only will vote for or against opening an ABC store in town. Plans are to partner with the Cooleemee ABC Board.

    At the end of the day on Monday, 2,002 people had already voted in Davie County, according to elections director, Tabatha Parrish. Those who wish to vote early can do so during regular business hours this week.

    Early voting is also available at four more sites. Bermuda Run Town Hall will have voting available weekdays through Nov. 4, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., and from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5.

    Jerusalem and William R. Davie fire departments, and the Fork Baptist Church fellowship hall, will be open for early voting weekdays through Nov. 4, 1-6 p.m., and from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5.

    All polling places will be open on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Those voters who usually cast ballots at Redland Pentecostal Holiness Church will do so at Hillsdale Baptist for this election.

    Sample ballots are available on the county’s website,, under he Elections department.

    Four people are seeking election to three seats on the county board of commissioners. Incumbent Republicans Mark Jones, Richard Poindexter and Terry Renegar, who won in the primary, are being challenged by Justin Draughn, who got on the ballot after obtaining enough signatures from registered voters.

    Four candidates for the Davie Board of Education, all Republicans – W.G. “Dub” Potts, Wendy Hoots Horne, Terry L. Hales and Paul A. Drechsler – are running unopposed, as are Republican Andrew Brock for the NC Senate, Julia Howard for the NC House of Representatives and Brent Shoaf for Davie Register of Deeds.

    Other local candidates include Ted Budd, a Republican U.S. House of Representative candidate, who faces Democrat Bruce Davis; and Lori Hamilton, who is seeking a non-partisan Superior Court judgeship along with Jeffrey Berg.
