NC elections chief predicts dropoff in voting compared to 2008

Gary Bartlett, the top elections official in North Carolina, has predicted that overall turnout will fall just short of the percentage recorded in 2008, according to The Associated Press.

Bartlett said Monday he expects about 69 percent of the more than 6.6 million registered voters would cast ballots when all is said and done. Four years ago, 69.53 percent of those registered voted, which set a record for recent North Carolina electoral history. So far, about 41 percent of the state's registered voters have cast votes, short of the 42 percent who cast ballots before Election Day in 2008.
