GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The polls have closed for today’s primary election in North Carolina. Voters in several municipalities are also electing local leaders.

Towns and cities including Greenville, Jacksonville, and New Bern, are also seeing voters casting ballots in municipal elections that were postponed last year as new district lines were drawn up.

Many counties across Eastern Carolina reported that a steady stream of people voted Tuesday. In Pitt County, the voter turnout is up from four years ago during the 2018 primary election.

During early voting, numbers were more than double what they were in 2018.
