If you haven’t been brought to your front door by the knocks of canvassers urging you to vote early yet… well, you may be the only one. But the efforts to encourage early voting here in the triangle have taken a more enjoyable turn, and a turn away from your front door.
This Friday, October 26, Durham’s Central park will host a midday early voting rally. The rally will kick off at 11am and will feature three amazing acts and delicious soup to warm your heart and soul. Mac McCaughan (Superchunk, Portastatic), the triangle’s own Spider Bags, and Titus Andronicus will all play to urge potential voters to get out and vote early. If you missed Spider Bags at Kings on September 20, let’s just leave it at you don’t want to miss these guys again.
Early voting kicked off in NC on October 18 and will continue until 5pm on November 3. NC State’s own Talley Student Center is an early voting location this year, but there are 20 other locations through Wake and Orange counties housing early voting this year. To find your early voting location, check out the early voting websites for Wake and Orange counties. And don’t forget — even if you’ve forgotten to register to vote here in NC, you can still register AND vote in one stop at early voting.
Have your voice heard and get out to hear some awesome bands this election year!
This week, we have some very special guests here on Eye on the Triangle. We are excited to welcome Jonathan Smith, Andy Walsh, and Caroline Yopp to our studio to discuss the issues that matter to you, the N.C. State community. Polls close tonight at midnight, so if you haven’t voted yet, be sure to do so. In addition, we bring you stories from Ag Awareness Week, the group Liberty in North Korea’s visit, the imPACKt awards, and a visit by Herman Cain to Wake County. It’s going to be a great show, be sure to tune in!

As you may know by now, WKNC will be broadcasting a LIVE, localized version of Orsen Welles’ classic radio drama War of the Worlds. The event will take place Halloween night from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.
Want to take part in the invasion? Tweet about it! Update your Facebook status!
During the broadcast, the news about the aliens will become more and more severe. You can do the same with your Tweets. Be creative. Tell your friends you’re freaked. Tell your friends you’re being chased by aliens. Describe where you’re hiding or what you see. Help us destroy the Triangle for Halloween! If you are listening on the Internet somewhere outside the Triangle, that’s great too! The aliens are landing everywhere! We’re all doomed!!
Disclaimer: “Help us destroy the Triangle” means, help us pretend to destroy Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and beyond using the radio the Internet, and your imagination. Please don’t do anything stupid and get arrested. That would be silly. (And all liability would fall on you, dig?)
