Early voting is off to a good start in North Carolina. Close to 300,000 people have taken advantage of early voting since the polls opened on Thursday. It’s closing in on the ten day total of early voters in the 2010 midterm. The voting period is shorter this year, but more one stop voting sites are available with extended hours.
The total number of ballots cast so far including absentee and military ballot pushes the number of votes so far to almost 400,000. This year more than 360 early voting sites are offered across the state, the most sites ever offered. Early voting ends on Nov. 1.
