GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Pitt County Board of Elections said voter turn out has been extremely high so far. Just in the first two days, more than 2,400 people had cast their ballots in the county.
Dave Davis, the director of the Pitt County Board of Elections, said they expect more than 10,000 people to vote during the one-stop early voting period.
“We’ve already caught up in two days what we did in a week in 2012,” Davis said. “You kind of wonder if that’s showing us that everybody that’s going to vote is coming on and doing it, or if it’s going to continue to build.”
Voters said casting their ballot early is easier because you can avoid the lines. They also said they want their voice to be heard with such polarizing candidates on the ballots.
“Some of the candidates are really fighting for justice and equality, and then there’s some who are just there to make a name for themselves,” said Beverly McCarter.
