This year’s midterm elections on Nov. 2 will determine the outcome of a U.S. Senate race, all 13 North Carolina congressional seats, all North Carolina Senate and House seats, state judicial races, local/municipal offices across the state and even some bonds and other matters.

That’s pretty important, given the likely low voter turnout (as in most midterm elections).

If you have to work on Nov. 2 or have some other plans keeping you from getting to the polls, why don’t you stop by one of the several early voting sites in your county. It’s easy, quick and you can get your ballot filled out and submitted.

You can download a list of early voting sites across the state here (PDF). Early voting begins today.
