Zebulon bidding for statewide glory

Here’s a cause everyone in eastern Wake County can rally around.

The town of Zebulon is in a popularity contest of sorts. The North Carolina League of Municipalities – sort of like a trade association for towns – has concocted its own tournament between 32 towns and cities across the state. The bracket-style tournament features towns as small as Lake Lure and Wallace (Zebulon’s first-round opponent) and as large as Hickory and Durham.

Run through Facebook, the contest allows voters to like the town of their choice, which equates to a vote. The winners of the contests in each round advance to the next round.

Voting is currently open – go to Facebook and search N.C. League of Municipalities. Once there, go to the photos section and click on the picture of Zebulon’s town hall to vote. Like the photo and you’ve voted.

You can also get to the page by clicking on the photo of the Zebulon Town Hall in a post on the Eastern Wake News Facebook page.

As of 3 p.m. Tuesday, Wallace was leading Zebulon 108-77.

The first round ends Friday.

The winner of the first round will square off against the first-round winner between Southern Pines and Oxford.

Since Zebulon is the only eastern Wake County town in this year’s tournament, voters from across the area can show their regional loyalties and cast a vote for the Town of Friendly People.
