North Carolinia Democrats Excited To Choose Between Clinton And Obama

Nearly 75,000 people have already cast their ballots in North Carolina's presidential primary, even though the primary is May 6th.

The early votes have been cast under new rules that allow previously-unregistered voters to sign up and vote on the same day until May 3rd.

Both campaigns have launched efforts encouraging people to take part in the early voting. Polling sites have been flooded since they opened last week.

Voter registration is up overall. The biggest spike is among blacks, who make up 20 percent of the state's registered voters.

Those are positive numbers for Barack Obama, who has seen strong
black support throughout the primaries.
Obama and Hillary Clinton are vying for the state's 115 delegates in their Democratic White House bids.
