NC Early Vote Numbers Bust Through 2016 Total

RALEIGH – Voting early is all the rage, it seems. Actually, early vote totals in North Carolina, as of Sunday, have exceeded the entire early early vote from 2016.

We still have this week of early voting to go, and then election day itself, of course.

At this point, it is easy to predict that turnout will be historic when all votes are cast. Turnout in North Carolina could be as high as 75 percent.

Nationwide, nearly 60 million votes have already been cast. In 2016, about 135 million people voted across the country.
