Orange County Board of Elections Chairwoman Tracy Reams says it’s “very slow out there” on Election Day.
She’s seeing some polling stations with as few as 23 or 45 voters, and her team is reporting few lines across the county.
Residents have until 7:30 p.m. to cast a ballot. Reams says she expects the first precinct totals to be released by 7:50 p.m. with full results to come by 9 p.m. at the latest. They will be posted to the BOE’s Web site.
Reams added that she still has not received a written withdrawal notice from Chapel Hill mayoral hopeful Kevin Wolff and that he “is still a valid candidate.”
