Early Voting Winding Down

With just a couple of days left for early voting in our state, turnout has been slow so far.

Pitt County residents are casting their votes in several municipal elections. So far about 2,200 people have voted in Pitt county- about 3 percent of registered voters. Usually there's about a 4 % turnout for municipal elections.

Some residents say early voting is not a priority since the vote counts the same whether you vote early or not.

Others tell us it gives them an opportunity to vote on their own time.

You can register and vote the same day during early voting, but you can not register on election day.

Saturday is the last day to vote early. Election day is November 8th.

    Turn out is slow because no one knows where to vote. I asked 20 seperate people where to vote if you lived near the Sheetz on 33 and they all said I dont know. Different polling places for local and federal elections leaves most people asking where?

      You can vote at the county extension office next to the detention center.
