Guilford County Board of Elections (BOE) officials noted that this year’s midterm General Election early voting numbers were slightly higher than the 2018 midterm elections.
“It started off slow, then it just exploded,” said Charlie Collicutt, BOE Director.
The Board of Elections reported that 103,981 votes were cast during early voting, which includes provisional ballots and same day registrations. A total of 186,240 votes were cast in Guilford County out of 378,242 registered voters. These are complete, but unofficial results with 100 percent of the precincts reporting. The BOE will provide official totals after a canvassing meeting on November 18.
