RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The state of North Carolina’s political landscape leading into Election Day is becoming clearer.

Final totals are expected Monday for the number of people who took advantage of early voting.

State Board of Elections data show the number of ballots cast in-person during early voting reached 2.55 million as of Saturday, exceeding the record 2008 total of 2.4 million. 48 percent of early voters in North Carolina were registered Democrats, while about 32 percent were Republicans.

The final campaigning before Election Day includes first lady Michelle Obama visiting Charlotte on Monday.

Pat McCrory, the state’s Republican candidate for governor, is holding a rally at Wingate University in Union County. Democratic candidate Walter Dalton plans to campaign in Wilmington and Greenville.
