Last chance for early voting in N.C. is Saturday
Statewide, 31.2 percent of voters, more than 2.2 million, had already cast a ballot as of Wednesday in the general election.
Democrats have cast 48 percent of early ballots, Republicans just under 32 percent, unaffiliated nearly 20 percent and Libertarians .2 percent, according to the state Board of Elections.
But Dare County has among the lowest number of early votes cast in northeastern North Carolina.
Through Tuesday, 20.6 percent of registered voters had already voted.
Currituck has had a slow early vote turnout with only 14.2 percent.
Just 9.7 percent of Hyde County registered voters have cast their ballots early, the lowest in the area.
The highest percentage of early voting turnout in the 15-county northeastern region has been in Chowan County, where 36 percent of the voters have already been to the polls.
Beaufort, Bertie, Hertford, Northampton, Pasquotank, and Washington counties were each above 30 percent turnout through Wednesday.
Those who are not registered to vote may do so during the early voting period, and then cast a ballot at the same time.
