Bad weather greets some early voters at polls

Monday, October 29th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — First there were long lines. Now state election officials are warning about another problem at North Carolina’s early voting stations: bad weather.

State election executive director Gary Bartlett said Monday that a few polling stations in the eastern part of the state were closed this weekend because of Hurricane Sandy. But Bartlett says they’ll be open Monday.

But he says the main concern now is heavy snow in western North Carolina. Those early polling stations are open, even in Watauga County, which has received up to 8 inches of snow. But Bartlett says that could change.

More than 1.5 million people had voted as of Monday. Early voting in North Carolina ends Nov. 3.

Hurricane Sandy causes Snow’s Cut Bridge work delay

Monday, October 29th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The North Carolina Department of Transportation (DOT) says work originally scheduled to begin today on the Snow’s Cut Bridge will not start, due to Hurricane Sandy blowing through the region.

Closures for bridge maintenance will take four lanes down to two, but the DOT has not issued a new date for construction.

Once construction begins, the work is expected to take approximately four months to complete.
