Polls are open until 7:30 p.m. as North Carolina voters cast ballots for Democratic and GOP state candidates this fall.
Nominations for federal, state government and legislative seats appear on primary ballots below the high-profile choices for president that brought massive candidate operations and advertising to the state in recent weeks, the Associated Press reports.
Candidates for lieutenant governor, schools superintendent and other Council of State positions appear on the ballot. Democrats are choosing who they believe can unseat Sen. Thom Tillis.
“About 778,000 people cast ballots during the early in-person voting period that ended Saturday. Overall primary voting could reach three times that number if it follows previous presidential years,” the AP reports.

Note Regarding Photo ID:
Voters are not required to show photo ID for the March 2020 primary election. In a December 31 order, a federal district court blocked North Carolina’s voter photo ID requirement from taking effect. The injunction will remain in place until further order of the court.
