Voter turnout in North Carolina just over 50%
RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) - Just over half of the state’s registered voters took part in Tuesday’s mid-term election.
The North Carolina State Board of Elections said turnout stands at 50.5%, compared to a 53% showing at the polls four years ago.
The number of people who actually voted in 2018 and 2022 is nearly the same, at around 3.7 million, but the difference in turnout comes because there are now more registered voters in the state.
