CHARLOTTE, N.C. - State elections officials said voter turnout in North Carolina won't reach 2008 record levels, but it will get pretty close.
Elections numbers on Wednesday afternoon showed 4.5 million ballots had been cast for a voter turnout so far of 67.7 percent.
But officials still have to count mail-in absentee ballots and provisional ballots.
Turnout for the 2008 election reached more than 69.5 percent.
