CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
"Seven hours," said Montilda Cureton outside the Plaza-Midwood library, on The Plaza. "It was very exhausting but worth it."
In South Charlotte, voters were happy the wait was only two hours.
Donna Clay stood in line with her two daughters. "I am able to really make my vote count," Clay said. "And if I sit down and don't speak, then I'm silent. So the line doesn't matter today."
Eyewitness News political expert Michael Bitzer called this year's early voting "historic beyond belief."
Not including Saturday's totals, 2.3 million people had voted early in North Carolina. State election officials said roughly 3 million people voted in the 2004 presidential election.
Mecklenburg County elections officials hope the record turnout during early voting will make for a smoother election day.
