One-stop early voting ended at 3 p.m. Saturday across North Carolina, with a total of 45,232 people taking advantage of that process, according to Cumberland County Board of Elections Director Angie Amaro.

On Saturday alone, Amaro said, 4,400 people voted in the county.

In the 2018 midterm election, 46,833 votes were cast. Turnout is typically highest in presidential election years. 

This year’s election will decide races for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives; N.C. Senate and House; N.C. Supreme Court (two seats) and N.C. Court of Appeals (four seats); and N.C. Superior Court judge and N.C. District Court judge.

In Cumberland County, voters will choose two members of the Board of Commissioners, three members of the Board of Education, a sheriff, the clerk of court, and two Soil and Water District supervisors.

In addition, Fayetteville voters will decide whether to approve changing the way City Council members are elected in a referendum on the Vote Yes Fayetteville initiative. City voters also will decide on three bond packages: $60 million for public safety improvements; $25 million for infrastructure updates; and $12 million for housing initiatives.
