Early and Often Voting Update

Here's the latest Brunswick County early voting party affiliation breakdown:

43% Dem
36% Rep
22% Unaffiliated

I'm not sure why this adds up to 101%, but it's more likely my amazing math skills than anything untoward. Overall, 23.3% of registered voters have cast ballots so far in early voting locations.

Looks like the Democrats are out early this year. Statewide, black voters are early voting in record numbers, so that could explain some of it. The Democrat vote on election day may be less for Obama in Brunswick County than many would think. It may bode less well for local Republican candidates, though.

Don't give up the ship, and remember, in North Carolina you have until Saturday to Vote Early and Often!
