SANFORD — President Bill Clinton will visit Sanford Wednesday for an early voting rally at the McSwain Agricultural Center at 2420 Tramway Road.
Clinton, whose wife Hillary is campaigning for the Democratic nomination for president, is scheduled to be at the center from 9:15 a.m. to 10 a.m., according to Hillary’s campaign web site.
The rally, which is free and open to the public, is part of an early voting promotion tour that also includes stops in Apex, Lillington, Dunn, Hope Mills, Lumberton, and Whiteville.
The McSwain Center is one of four locations in Lee County where voters can cast their ballots early. The other three locations are the Lee County Board of Elections office on Steele Street, the Broadway Town Meeting Chambers on East Lake Drive in Broadway and the Northwest Pocket Fire Department on Pickard Road.
Early voting is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. Election Day is May 6.
A limited number of parking spaces for the Clinton event will be available at the McSwain Center, although plans are to close off the road in front of the building at 9 a.m. Vehicles will not be admitted to the parking lot after the road is closed.
Further parking is available across the street at San-Lee Middle School, on the nearby grass at the Worthy House and along a nearby dirt road. Those parking there should walk around the nearby wheat field and not through it.
The Agriculture Extension says anybody who plans on being at this thing needs to plan on getting there EARLY.
