10.12.2020 Message from Mayor Brad Simmons
Mint Hill Residents,
The next election is a general election and will be held on November 3, 2020. You can get information about your registration, where to vote, and absentee ballot on the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections website. There are several polling places in Mint Hill. Make sure you know before you go to ensure you go to the correct location. Early voting opens at 8:00 am on Thursday, October 15th. Independence High School will serve as the early polling location in Mint Hill. Emotions are high on both sides of this election and I encourage you to do your research and get out and exercise your right to vote.
The 2020 Census deadline has been extended to October 31. Please take the time to complete your questionnaire online, by phone or on paper. You can complete the questionnaire, spending less than 10 minutes on what can impact your community in the next 10 years. If you have questions, visit my2020census.gov or call the Census Bureau at (884) 330-2020.
Don't forget about the Ezell Park Public Input meeting scheduled for Thursday, October 15 from 6:00-7:00 pm. I've heard from several of you in the community, but only a few have signed up to participate. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the vision of the Ezell Park property located on the corner of Matthews-Mint Hill Road and Mintwood Drive. This is a Mecklenburg County Parks project, and this is our opportunity to provide input on the park's design and programs. Because it is a virtual meeting, you need to pre-register. Register at www.publicinput.com/Ezell. For more information, contact James Williams at 980-314-1038 or James.Williams@mecklenburgcountync.gov.
The Scarecrow Decorating Contest has been a huge success. Voting continues and at this time, it's too close to call. The difference between the top vote getters in each category is less than 10 votes and the winner changes daily. Be sure to vote for your favorite.
Stay healthy, be counted and be on the lookout for scarecrows.
Mint Hill Mayor
