NC: First day of early voting set a Mecklenburg record.

The record turnout that launched early voting in Mecklenburg County on Thursday saw the heaviest voting on Charlotte’s fringes, according to elections data released Friday, while the sites with the largest voter capacity drew only middling crowds.

And Friday drew nearly as strong a turnout.

On Thursday, Southwest Middle School, Cornelius Town Hall and UNC Charlotte’s Belk Gymnasium saw the most voters with more than 1,300 each. Renaissance West STEAM Academy, Mountain Island Lake Library and Bette Rae Thomas Recreation Center were the least-visited locations with as few as 545 voters.

The 33 polling sites averaged 1,069 voters each Thursday.

The largest sites — Spectrum Center, Bank of America Stadium and Bojangles Entertainment Complex — each drew 1,000 to 1,100 voters.
