WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – One-stop early voting ends Saturday, May 3 for North Carolina's primary elections. The State Board of Elections announced today that early voting turnout ahead of Tuesday's Primary has already surpassed early votes cast in the most recent non-presidential primary year: 2010. 

Counties report early voting totals at 199,904 as of 2 p.m. Friday, compared to 172,972 votes cast over the 17-day early voting period in 2010.  This represents an overall increase in turnout of 0.8% over 2010, adjusting for increased registration.  

"We are encouraged by the strong showing despite severe weather across our state," said SBOE Executive Director Kim Westbrook Strach in the email.

The 2014 primary is the first election cycle under a compacted 10-day early voting period put into place by the General Assembly in 2013. The 2010 early voting period lasted 17 days.
