Midterm voter participation in North Carolina set a new record tonight. As of 10:34PM, 2,717,920 voters had cast ballots. In 2010, turnout was 2,700,393.

“We are pleased that more than 2.7 million voters made such a strong statement for the democratic process —increasing early participation by over 20% and besting the state’s prior midterm record,” said Executive Director Kim Strach. “We commend the counties for their hard work and commitment on behalf of voters in our state.”

Eight percent of precincts were unreported as of 10:34PM.

Renee Ellmers today released the following statement on her election victory over Clay Aiken:

I am honored the people of the Second District have chosen to re-elect me as their congresswoman. I also appreciate Mr. Aiken’s willingness to serve and I hope to work together with him on issues that matter to both of us such as helping people with disabilities, children with autism and all-encompassing mental health reform.

Now it’s time to get to work on common sense solutions that will improve the lives of the American people. I look forward to working with both parties to revive our economy, strengthen our military and fix our broken healthcare system.
