SOUTHEAST N.C. — It’s election day for municipalities across North Carolina and polls are open until 7:30 p.m., as results come in from the state Board of Elections, Port City Daily will provide readers with updates.
Election results will be broken down into three separate stories with information for New Hanover, Pender, and Brunswick counties each in their own article.
One-Stop voting results, that is, early voting that took place earlier in the election season will be updated as soon as polls close and will be the first results available. Next, as the precincts close and submit the results to the county, numbers will be updated at the state level as well as on our stories.
Once results are posted and our stories are live you can click the following links below.
While polling stations might close at 7:30 p.m., results do take time to tabulate. In the past, it has taken several hours before all precincts report their results. You can also find the most recent polling results online with the State Board of Elections.
Remember: Election results are not final until canvassing by the board of election of all represented counties; state statute gives county boards one week to complete the canvass and the state Board of Election three weeks. Close races — those separated by less than 1 percent of the total vote — may be subject to a recount.
