Early voting report from Durham County, North Carolina.

Early-voting craziness has been going on here in North Carolina for the last 10 days or so.  So far, 51% of registered voters have already voted in Durham County (88521 out of 174848).

To put this in perspective, only 32% of Durham County had voted early in the 2004 General Election, with an overall turnout of 72%.  

From the ground, it looks like Durham county turnout will approach 85% this year.  

Durham County, with 175,000 registered voters, makes up approximately 3% of North Carolina's voting electorate. It is overwhelmingly Democrat, with only 15% registered Republicans.  Here is a more detailed breakdown of the current registered voters in Durham County.

We are cautiously optimistic here in North Carolina for an Obama and US Senate win.  I think it can happen, but it will require a massive election day Democratic push in other North Carolina counties, and it will be VERY close.

If you are from a very blue state, we could use some help down here in NC!!!!   GO-bama!!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
