NC Vote Tracker is now tracking early voting for the 2018 Primary.
Today is the first day of in-person early voting (we’ll see those numbers tomorrow), but mail-in ballots have been accepted by local boards of elections offices since March 19th.
NC Vote Tracker is a user-friendly website/database at the Civitas Institute’s Carolina Transparency website that helps everyone better understand early voting numbers.
First introduced in 2010, www.ncvotetracker.com allows us to break down the early voting data by party, age, gender, race, congressional and state House and Senate districts and site name (in-person early voting sites). NC Vote Tracker also includes charts and graphs for visual comparisons.
While we’ll see the numbers for the first day of early voting (in-person) tomorrow, today we can report that as of yesterday 2,187 voters’ mail-in ballots have been returned to the local BOE’s and will be counted on Election Day.
Here are some of examples of what you will find on NC Vote Tracker.
Of the 2,187 ballots cast so far, Democrats have cast 1,020 of the ballots (46.6 percent), Republicans have cast 584 ballots (26.7 percent); and unaffiliated voters have cast 583 ballots (26.7 percent). Libertarians have not returned a ballot by mail thus far.
As of today, 111 voters are over the age of 89, including one 104-year-old, four 101-year-olds and two 100-year-olds. Only seven eighteen-year-old’s have returned their ballots by mail.
Congressional District 9 has the most ballots returned so far at 520 and Congressional District 12 has the least at 70.
The data you see in NC Vote Tracker comes straight from the State Board of Elections (SBOE) website, where it is refreshed each morning with the previous day’s early voting activity.
