  • One-stop voting drawing a crowd

    Those who forgot to register to vote by the Friday, Oct. 12, North Carolina deadline have another chance.

    Greg Bellamy, director of the Brunswick County Board of Elections, said people could still register to vote as one-stop early voting launched Oct. 18 in the county.

    A steady line of people showed up for early voting when it opened at 10 a.m. Thursday at the National Guard Armory in Shallotte, and the parking lot was jammed.
