It’s officially Election Day all across the country with voters making their voices heard in thousands of races from coast to coast.
In North Carolina, polls opened at 6:30 a.m. this morning and will remain open until 7:30 p.m. Don’t forget that as long as you are in line to vote by 7:30, you are allowed to vote.
