The Real Story of Ashley Woolard’s Residency: According to State BOE, Woolard Can’t Vote For Himself.

I’ve had several emails asking this and here it is straight from The NC Board of Elections

I pulled Ashley Woolard’s Sample Voter Ballot and according to the State BOE Woolard will not be able to vote for himself.


According to the BOE Woolard lives in the 3rd Congressional District currently held by Walter B. Jones. In fact, on Woolard’s website he is pictured with Congressman Walter Jones.  Interesting.




I also have a picture taken from the Wilson County Tea Party Rally from a few weeks ago.  That’s interesting also.  Just in case you’re not sure what he looks like.

  2. Joel Killion says:

    At Congressman G.K. Butterfield’s Appreciation Rally a few weeks ago, Butterfield said, regarding Mr. Woolard, that “…He’s not going to vote against me. Duh? Please believe me…when I tell you that my opponent is not going to vote against me. His wife is not going to vote against me. His mother and father – who are incidentally Democrats (the crowd laughed) – are not going to vote against me. Do you know why? HE DOESN’T LIVE IN THE 1ST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT! (The crowd cheers) And that is a fact. He does not live in the 1st Congressional District. Under the law, you can live anywhere in NC and run for Congress…”

    So, even Butterfield agrees that there is nothing unlawful about Woolard not being able to vote for himself, against Butterfield. Woolard understands small business; he understands profit-and-loss sheets; he understands that budgets must be balanced; he understands that deficits are bad; he has a fresh perspective on the 1st District which allows him to govern objectively, without emotional, familial bias; he understands the importance of lower taxes for everyone, including those who create jobs for everyone else; he understands that all businesses must be free to try, buy, sell, and fail; he understand that “from each according to his ability to each according to their need” does not work in the dirt. Anyway, in other words, he has what it takes to lead, Constitutionally, and this has nothing to do with where he lives. Why major on minors? Why get stuck in the thick of thin things?

      Joel, just because it’s not “unlawful” doesn’t make it right. If you wish, you can reply with the “how” Ashley has all of this “understanding” of P/L, the “how” he will accomplish a balanced budget and what specifically gives him “what it takes to lead.” Give me specifics, which Bills and why. Which Bills didn’t pass and why, and what difference did it make. But, where he lives is not a minor issue, because (if you were truthful” and the shoe were on the other foot, it would be a big deal.

      What do you mean by he has what it takes “Constitutionally to lead?” Don’t give me rhetoric…give me reasons and fact, not based on buzz words.

      But, lastly, I really don’t see spending a lot of time on Woolard. If he had a shot at winning, it would be more pressing, but I don’t see him getting even close. The numbers just aren’t there from the dailies I see.

      There are other campaigns in Wilson that are closer. But, also, let me say this: I think we have some common ground and we can agree on some issues that may give us a foundation we can develop and built upon that will enable us to disagree on some issues and agree on others in a respectful and professional manner.

      I not saying we can “move mountains” but I think that it may be safe to say we support totally different candidates for election. If we work together to better understand each other, we may be able to set a very powerful and positive example on who to disagree and still maintain civility.
