RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Early in-person voting is ending in North Carolina, where records have been smashed by those who preferred not to vote at their Election Day precincts.

Early voting sites in all 100 counties are closing Saturday afternoon. Over 4.3 million state residents had voted as of late Friday, compared to about 3.1 million early votes recorded for the entire 2016 general election.

Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, and Vice President Mike Pence scheduled campaign events in the state on Saturday. Registered voters can still vote in person on Tuesday or postmark their mail-in ballots by that day.

In Pitt County, the final day of early voting wasn’t met with large crowds. However, that didn’t stop many voters from making their voices heard.

“How do you express anything how do you change anything if all you do is sit at home and complain?  This is your time to get out an make a difference,” said voter Lisa Williams.

The last day for voting is now November 3rd…election day.
