Election Day has come and gone. Here’s where the NC Election Results Stand Right Now

Election Day has come and gone. Here’s where the NC Election Results Stand Right Now

Tuesday was a long day for North Carolina and America, and Tuesday night seemed even longer. Where do we stand with NC election results?

Here’s what we knew this morning about the election results of NC’s major races: Roy Cooper won reelection as governor, the Senate race is extremely tight, and it appears North Carolina will send eight Republicans and five Democrats to the U.S. House.

However, Election Day is more than who won or lost. It’s a tapestry of millions of stories.

Local Business Feeds Voters at the Polls

The parking lot for the Winston Lake Family YMCA in Winston-Salem was more than half full as the sun set Tuesday. Ashleigh Hardesty Armstrong’s time in Forsyth Seafood Co.’s food truck was winding down.

Armstrong, who co-owns Forsyth Seafood Co. with her mother, and a co-worker had been at polling sites in east Winston-Salem since around 11 a.m. Tuesday. The pitch to voters was simple: voters received a free fish sandwich and a small side of cole slaw.

“We had been trying to figure out what we could do to encourage people to vote, so this is what we could come up with,” Armstrong said.

A few minutes after 5 p.m. Tuesday, a little more than 140 fish sandwiches had been given away.

“Everyone’s pretty enthusiastic, mostly young people,” Armstrong said. “It’s really cool to see young mothers with newborn children and infants and toddlers come out and vote during the day, to vote on lunch breaks.”

Armstrong and the food truck were at a large voter rally last week held on Winston-Salem State’s campus. About 2,500 people were there. Moreover, among them was Winston-Salem native and NBA star Chris Paul.

Remember, this story is just one Election Day story. Now, let’s look at where the unofficial state Board of Elections numbers stood Wednesday morning.
