On Saturday, March 2, the Clay County Republican Party will host a Voting Machine Workshop at 10 AM, at First Free Will Baptist Church in Hayesville.  This workshop will be presented by Kathy Maney, a Republican activist from Henderson County, and will run for approximately 2 hours.  Ms. Maney has presented her insights and views about Voting Machines to many North Carolina counties over the past year and we are excited to have her bring her informative, fun, and interactive workshop to Clay County.  There is no charge for the workshop, but we ask that you stop by headquarters and sign up so we can get an early idea of attendance. 



Finally, mark your calendar to “Save the Date” for the 2024 Clay County Republican Precinct / County Convention on March 21 at the Beal Center.  More information on this and additional events will follow as the 2024 election year gets into full swing.

For additional information, contact the headquarters office at 828-541-3991 or Barbara Deas at 678-644-5561.
