So this will be one of my three views for the next two weeks:
I know there are people who do not think NC should have early voting, but if they heard the lines of people saying "thank you", they would have to agree it's not a bad thing. From construction workers with out of town jobs, to expectant Moms who can go "at any time", to truck drivers who are often gone from home 1-2 weeks at a time, having a week and a half before the elections where they can cast an absentee ballot without the witnesses or notary is a wonderful thing. And it does eliminate some of the long lines on election day.
Tomorrow the early-voting polls officially open. It truly is "no excuse voting"!
