Record early voting turnout in some North Carolina counties

This is from

Eyewitness News learned there was a record turnout in early voting in Mecklenburg County. Typically less than 1 percent of voters cast ballots in early voting, but in this primary it was 8 percent. The statistics show 85 percent of those people voted Democrat, even thought only 44 percent of voters in the county are registered Democrats.

(election officials) expect 40 percent voter turnout in Tuesday’s primary, which is considered to be extraordinary for a primary.
