News Around Town: It’s Election Day! If you aren’t one of the 25% of Mecklenburg County voters who took advantage of early voting, head on over to your polling location and cast your ballot today! Check here if you’re not sure where to vote. For non-partisan summaries of all the candidates on your ballot, visit and enter your address. Expect some lines, turnout for early voting was more than double the 2014 early voting totals and it’s expected a large number of voters will come out on Tuesday. Weather is also a factor; the forecast calls for rain so make sure you have an umbrella in the event you’ll be standing outside. However you vote, we encourage all of our readers to exercise their right and perform their civic duty.
