Almost 1 Million Early Voters in North Carolina

The 2010 midterm elections are tomorrow but early voting started two weeks ago and over 15% of registered voters have already voted in North Carolina. That means around 1 million votes have been cast in what will be a very crucial election for both the Democratic and Republican parties.

WRAL reports the following numbers from the polls:

About 46 percent of ballots cast have come from registered Democrats, while 36 percent are from registered Republicans. The advantage for Democrats has steadily widened since the first days of early voting began about two weeks ago, when Republicans were trailing by just a few percentage points.

If you had a choice, would you rather everyone in North Carolina go to the poll and vote or less go and your party win? I’ve been going around and around on this and think I’m in the former camp. Voting is the important part, right? Then again…..

That said, everyone go out and make your vote count tomorrow (Tuesday November 2nd, 2010). The polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Find your polling place and other info here.
