Election Day

You still don't have to show your I-D to vote, but it may speed up the process.  Most voters actually do, even though a Constitutional Amendment passed by North Carolina voters still isn't being enforced because of a court challenge.

Different from early voting, you must already be registered to vote before you can vote Tuesday.  You also have to vote at the location for voting in your precinct.  [During early voting, you could vote at any early voting location in your county of residence.]

In Lincoln County, 19,749 (29.71%) of all eligible voters [66,462] cast ballots early.  In the City of Lincolnton election, 7,087 (25.1%) of the 1779 registered voters have already voted.  

In Catawba County, 31,214 people (28.2% of those registered) voted early.

In Gaston County, 37,709 (24.34%) cast early ballots.  [That figure doesn't include a little over two thousand mail-in ballots.]

The Lincoln Herald is pleased to provide this link that will give you the latest figures from the North Carolina State Board of Elections.  

If you click on the link, we set it to Lincoln County and All Contests, but you can use the drop-down menu on the left (Criteria) to change to other counties, check statewide results, etc.   Unlike the old days when people crowded the halls at the old courthouse and later at the Citizens Center outside the Elections Office, there is no quicker way to get the results.
