Greensboro, NC - Early voting will end on Saturday, and turnout has been high, even though the Republican Presidential primary has been nearly wrapped up by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and this is because of Amendment One, according to the Guilford County Board of Elections.
As of Tuesday morning, 8,537 early votes have been cast in Guilford County, this is compared to 9,349 votes that were cast at this point in the 2008 primary election.
2008 saw high turnout due to the primary battle between then Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
This year, Amendment One is becoming a big draw for voters, and according to recent polls, the vote could be close.
A Public Policy Poll released on Tuesday showed that 54% of voters planned on voting for the amendment, and 40% of voters planned on voting against the amendment. This is the lowest support this poll has seen for the Amendment since they began polling in October.
If you want to early vote, you have until Saturday. Early voting is one stop voting, in that you can register and vote on the same day.
This is not an option for Election Day on Tuesday.
