Around Town

Election Day
Registered voters can cast ballots today until 7:30 p.m. Visit the state Board of Elections website for precinct information and to track results after the polls close. 

Lunch for the Brave Registration Deadline
Wednesday is your last chance to register for the 2020 Lunch for the Brave, our drive through Veterans Day event scheduled for Tuesday, November 10. Registration closes on Wednesday, November 4, so reserve your spot today! Learn more.

Check Your Smoke Detector
The end of daylight saving time is a great opportunity to check your smoke detector batteries. Most fatal fires occur at night while victims are sleeping, and a working smoke alarm can double the chances of survival by increasing the amount of time a person has to escape a house fire. Follow the Cary Fire Department on Facebook.

Leaf Collection is Underway
Loose leaf collection for the season has begun. This year, Cary Collects is your digital resource instead of a mailed map and schedule. To view or print your pickup schedule, enter your address at or download the Cary Collects app on the Google or Apple app stores. To ensure collection, place leaves along the curb by 7 a.m. the first day of your collection periods.

Oliver Sacks: His Own Life
Explores the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller, as he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. 

"Epicentro" is an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, "utopian" Cuba, where the 1898 explosion of the U.S.S. Maine still resonates. 

The Keeper
An extraordinary love story between a young English woman and a German prisoner of war, who together overcome prejudice, outrage, and personal tragedy. 

Martin Eden
Adapted from a 1909 novel by Jack London yet set in a provocatively unspecified moment in Italy’s history, Martin Eden is a passionate and enthralling narrative fresco in the tradition of the great Italian classics.
