Polls opened at 6:30 Tuesday morning and closed at 7:30 p.m. for the 2018 mid-term elections in North Carolina. Pitt County saw a major turnout for early one-stop voting compared to midterm elections in 2014.
Tuesday's Election Day numbers followed an increased voter turn-out trend in Pitt County. Voters said all elections are important but admit being more attentive to key races on the ballot this year.
Jennifer Mabe said, "I think in Pitt County for sure the sheriff's race WAS the most popular, but I vote in every election, but this one was definitely one I needed to voice my opinion."
Voters say they were also concerned about the six constitutional amendments also on the mid-term ballots.
