Buncombe County has a great recipe for forcing a welfare state. I think I mentioned this before here, but it is worth repeating:

Voter registration programs are actively conducted through many agencies in this State. If a person is applying for or receiving benefits from any of the participating agencies or programs, a voter registration transaction is available during the conduct of any business with that office. The following programs and agencies are currently participating in the agency voter registration program:


  • Social Services
  • Work First
  • Food Stamps
  • Medicaid
  • Services for the Blind
  • Department of Health
  • Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
  • Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Governor’s Advocacy Council for Persons with Disabilities
  • Employment Security Commission
  • All of the Buncombe County Libraries provide registration forms also.

Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV):
The driver’s license examination offices . . .

The next step might be unionizing, so the boss man won’t let the working people off to pick up a registration form, or vote.
