North Carolina’s Board of Elections reported a larger-than-expected Early Voting turnout this election cycle. But those high numbers didn’t appear to stem the tide of voters at Belville Elementary School in Brunswick County this Election Day.

Rich Leary says he arrived at 6:30 in the morning to hand out campaign literature. Even at that hour, he says, voter traffic was steady.
