Today is Election Day, and with a gubernatorial primary and a constitutional amendment on the ballot in North Carolina, turnout is expected to be high. Already, early voting across the state has set some records. Of the nearly 6.3 million registered voters in the state, more than 507,000 North Carolinians cast votes already, according to The Carolina Transparency Project of The Civitas Institute.
If you’d like to follow the results of the election, here’s a quick-and-dirty guide to online information spots that are go-to sources for the day.
Remember that the polls are open until 7:30 p.m., so results will start being posted tonight. Find your polling place here.
The State Board of Elections will post results as they get them. Every race and every county will be represented in these results.
