Polls opened at 6:30 Tuesday morning--but unlike the first day of Early Voting on October 20th, there weren't long lines waiting to cast their ballots.  Nearly half of all eligible voters had taken advantage of the Early Voting period.

Candidates were busy Monday evening doing some last minute politicking.  Some were busy sticking signs in the ground near polling places, some of which are in locations where they couldn't put signs until late Monday.  It's likely that you may meet one or more of the local candidates when you go to vote this Tuesday (if you haven't already voted).  

Some of the candidates have planned "victory parties" for Tuesday night in anticipation that they will win.  Congressman Patrick McHenry will be at the Marriott Courtyard on Remount Road in Gastonia with the Gaston County GOP.  He told the Lincoln Herald that he will likely make a first stop at Homesteads Grill & Taphouse in Lincolnton where the Lincoln County GOP will gather.  His opponent, Andy Millard, will be in Tryon, NC.  Lincoln County Democrats will gather at the party headquarters at the corner of Water & Government streets to await election results.  

Deborah Ross, the Democratic nominee for US Senate, came to Lincolnton Monday afternoon. Ross had been scheduled for an earlier visit weeks ago, but vehicle problems forced a change in her schedule.  A crowd of supporters gathered to welcome her on Monday.

Mike Pence, the GOP Vice Presidential nominee, made a campaign stop in Hickory on Sunday.

Real Clear Politics latest poll results showed Trump the winner in the Presidential race by two last-minute polls (IBD/TIPP and LA Times) and Clinton the winner by a vast majority of polls with results released on Sunday. The polls involving North Carolina showed Clinton the winner in two out of three, the third saw the two in a tie.

The latest polls on the NC US Senate race favor Senator Richard Burr, but a couple of them have the Burr-Ross race in a tie.

All of the Real Clear Politics polls within the last week show Roy Cooper winning over Governor Pat McCrory.

Of course, the only poll that really matters is the one that is being completed this Tuesday--the actual voting.   Voting locations are almost all the same as they were in the election two years ago.  In Stanley, those who previously voted at the Community Bldg. will now vote at Christ Lutheran Church on S. Main St.  Here's the precinct voting info for area counties:
