GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The deadline has come and gone if you wanted to vote early in the election.
Many people took advantage of the last day of early voting, which ended at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
At some polling station, people lined up and waited to cast their ballot, all in an effort to avoid the large crowds on election day Tuesday.
Some voters in Pitt County we spoke with say it was important for them to have their voice heard.
“Each candidate is unique and different, and you have to look at their views as well, and see how they match your own morals and values and what you want out of the country,” said Teshunda Terry.
Others said this year’s election is polarizing with two different directions for the country.
“One faction is looking for change, and the other side kind of looking for someone who has a plan and can actually maybe provide some sort of solutions,” said Russell Weber.
More than two million people in North Carolina voted early.
