Early voting started on Thursday, Oct. 18, and this morning’s News & Observer reports that as many as two thirds of the votes will be cast early. One of those voting on the first day in Wake County was Pota Vallas, 104, who has voted in every election since emigrating from Greece in 1924 — just four years after the 19th amendment was passed.
Follow her example!
