1 million early and absentee ballots cast in North Carolina

Over 1 million votes have been cast by North Carolinians, the N.C. State Board of Elections reported.

Nearly a quarter-million of those votes were cast in person Thursday, the first day of early voting in the state.

By midday Friday, despite heavy morning rain, nearly another quarter million votes had been cast.
The total number of votes cast in person now totals 468,020.

People began lining up before sunrise Thursday. By the end of the day 229,835 voters had cast their ballots.

The number far surpassed the roughly 166,000 votes cast on the first day of early voting in 2016, the last presidential election, according to the State Board of Elections.

Despite the wait, many voters The News & Observer spoke with appeared in good spirits.
