North Carolina Hits Record Number of Early Voters Ahead of Elections


RALEIGH, N.C. - On Tuesday, millions of people will head to the polls for the midterm elections.

We've already seen record early voting numbers in North Carolina, where more than two million people across the state have cast ballots.

Local counties have also seen very high voter turnout. More than 206,000 people voted early in Mecklenburg County, while Channel 9’s partners at The Gazette reported more than 38,000 people in Gaston County have already voted. That's nearly 60 percent higher than the last midterm election in 2014.

Early in-person voting ended Saturday afternoon, capping an 18-day period in which people could register to vote and cast their ballots at the same time at early-voting sites in all 100 counties.

Citizens who visit an Election Day voting precinct Tuesday won't be able to vote unless they were already registered.
