Early voting starts Thursday. Here's where to go in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. BY ALISON KUZN

When early voting kicks off on Thursday, Mecklenburg County residents can cast their ballots at 33 locations, including Bank of America Stadium, Spectrum Center and Bojangles Coliseum.

Thatís one of the upshots of the COVID-19 pandemic, which prompted the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections to approve large venues intended to accommodate social distancing.

The more traditional polling sites, such as libraries and schools, are still options for voters throughout the Charlotte region.

Hand sanitizer and masks are available for voters, as well as Q-tips to safely use equipment. Surfaces should be cleaned frequently, and there will be barriers between poll workers and voters at check-in tables, among other safeguards outlined by the State Board of Elections.

More than 1 million North Carolinians have requested absentee ballots, with about 35% returned so far, according to Thursday data from the Old North State Politics blog.

1. Mecklenburg County is where Dems will rack up the big numbers in NC that

will push Biden and Cunnngham over the top.

Thankful to several of our more quiet but longtime DUers who play key roles there and know how to get things done.
