FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Throughout Election Day, monitors from the U.S. Department Of Justice observed various precincts in Cumberland County.
The monitoring came after a federal judge reinstated 4,500 voter registrations that were cancelled in the controversial individual challenge law.
Also, there was concern that many voters may be unaware of the location of some polling places.
Three precincts changed since the last election.
One of those precincts was the Stony Point Fire Department in Hope Mills which sustained significant flooding.
But, for the most part, everything seemed to be running smoothly on Tuesday.
“I didn’t know I had to go to another site, first time voting, I’m really excited,” said Salena Baker, who lives in Cumberland County.
Out of the nearly 200,000 Cumberland County registered voters, more than 80,000 took advantage of early voting.
Election officials say that paved the way for a more efficient process Tuesday.
