Early Voting Spikes On Final Day Saturday, Still Low
ORANGE COUNTY – More than 400 Orange County residents turned out to vote early on Saturday, the final day—and easily the busiest—of this year’s early voting period.
At the close of early voting, 2076 voters had cast their ballots in Orange County. That’s well off from the pace set in the last municipal election in 2011 and slightly off from the total in 2009—though the 2011 ballot also included a county-wide sales tax referendum and the 2009 election included a tight race for Chapel Hill Mayor.
Of the four early voting sites in Orange County, the Seymour Senior Center was the most popular: exactly 1000 voters cast their ballots there.
Election Day itself is Tuesday. Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Check out our Election Central page for all the latest on the 2013 election, plus interviews with each of the candidates—and tune in to WCHL on Tuesday night for our Election Night special, beginning at 7:00 immediately following the Evening News.
