Election 2021

North Carolina’s last dry county appears it will start selling alcohol soon.

In Tuesday’s election, voters in Graham County narrowly approved seven different ballot questions that would allow for beer and wine to be sold in the county. 

Sophia Paulos has been Graham County's economic development director for five years. She says a lot has changed in the county in that time, such as improved unemployment numbers and new businesses.

North Carolina lawmakers hope to have redistricting completed by the end of this month.  There are plenty of proposed maps floating about right now, but Western Carolina University Dr. Chris Cooper urges people not to overreact to any of them - because the only map that matters is the final one.
