If you're not one of the 1.7 million people who have already voted in North Carolina, you'll have extra time on Saturday, Nov. 1 to do so.
After an emergency meeting this morning, the N.C. State Board of Elections mandated asked that all 100 counties keep their polls open from 9 a.m. to at 5 p.m. Saturday. The closing time is four hours later than originally scheduled.
Saturday is the final day of early voting. Tuesday, Nov. 4, is Election Day. Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. that day.
