Only 193 people in Onslow County cast their votes today during day one of one-stop.

Rose Whitehurst, the director of Onslow County Board of Elections said taking into considering the new location at Jacksonville Public Safety, 193 is a pretty good number compared to other midterm election years. The new location for voting at Jacksonville Public Safety located at 200 Marine Blvd is temporary but intend to go back to the commons in the future, according to Whitehurst.

Two people who were registered as Democrats were turned away at the polls today due to no ballots being available. Reportedly, there are fewer Democrats than available seats in all but one race this year and only Democrats in the following precincts would be able to vote in the primaries: Catherine Lake, Gum Branch, Haws Run, 9 Mile, and Richlands.

Whitehurst said that majority of voters are registered as unaffiliated. Those who are registered unaffiliated have the option of voting for Republicans if a Democratic ballot wasn’t available for them.

One-stop voting is open Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the following two weeks Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and wraps up on May 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. before Election Day on May 8.

Anyone who hasn’t registered to vote can still do so during early voting at the polls. For more information on the election process, visit the Onslow County Board of Elections website, located at OnslowCountyNC.gov.
