7:30 p.m. Polls are now officially closed in North Carolina. Follow live election results here.
7 p.m. Polls are now closed statewide in Virginia (except for the East Suffolk Recreation Center, which is open until 7:20 p.m.). You can get election results live as they come in with WAVY’s live election results page.
6:15 p.m. The closing time for the East Suffolk Recreation Center polling place in Suffolk (which includes the 2nd District congressional race) has been extended until 7:20 p.m. after it opened 20 minutes late due to electronic issues with voting machines. A judge signed off on the change. Polls are expected to close elsewhere in Virginia at 7 p.m.
5 p.m. Some voters are reporting confusion about their polling place having changed due to redistricting. You can look up your correct polling place here and check who’s on the ballot with WAVY’s Voter Guide.
4 p.m. As of 3 p.m. Tuesday, just under 40% of voters (about 130,000 out of about 320,000 registered) had turned out overall, which is somewhat surprising, Andy Fox reports. That includes those who voted early via absentee or early in person.
76,342 had voted in-person on Election Day as of 3 p.m., WAVY’s Michelle Wolf reported. The 40% overall turnout as of 3 p.m. is down from the roughly 60% that voted in 2018, but political experts are thinking numbers will be about the same when voting ends, WAVY’s Brett Hall reports. Many people are still expected to vote after work.
WAVY also spoke to a first time voter at the polling location at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. He registered on Tuesday and voted through Virginia’s new same-day registration law. Andrew Reinhofer was able to fill out a provisional ballot through that same-day registration process.
At MOCA, one of the city’s largest precincts, only 960 people had voted in-person as of 3 p.m. Tuesday, though that figure didn’t include those from that precinct who may have voted early.
3 p.m. Norfolk voters are casting ballots for Congress, City Council and School Board. WAVY’s Jon Dowding is in Norfolk following these elections today. Here’s a preview of what’s at stake.
11 a.m. 10 On Your Side has been getting multiple calls from residents in Norfolk citing the “disappearance” of the 2nd District race between incumbent Rep. Elaine Luria and Sen. Jen Kiggans on their ballots.
To clarify, following the most recent redistricting, Norfolk is no longer part of the 2nd District.
District 2 now includes:
- Virginia Beach City
- Chesapeake (partial)
- Isle of Wight County
- Accomack County
- Northampton County
- Southampton County (partial)
10:40 a.m. Virginia Beach Electoral Chair Jeffrey Marks tells 10 On Your Side’s Julie Millet that Green Run Elementary was NOT closed Tuesday morning “for any period of time.”
Marks added that ballot issues at the Windsor Oaks polling station are voter confusion due to redistricting.
As of 9 a.m., Marks stated that 22,537 residents have voted, part of a “higher than expected” voter turnout in Virginia Beach.
8 a.m. 10 On Your Side’s KaMaria Braye was live at the polling station at Kiln Creek Elementary in Newport News. It is the biggest precinct in the city servicing around 5,000 registered voters.
Around 8 a.m., KaMaria reported that around 360 people have already voted at the Kiln Creek Elementary polling station. 13% of registered voters have already voted, this includes early voting and mail-in ballots.
7 a.m.: 10 On Your Side’s Brett Hall was live at the polling station at Lynnhaven United Methodist Church in Virginia Beach. State Senator Jen Kiggans herself cast her ballot at that polling station Tuesday morning. Her opponent, Rep. Elaine Luria already cast her ballot prior to Election Day during early voting.
Around 8:20 a.m., Brett reported that more than 200 people had voted at that polling station, just a little over two hours after the polls opened.
6:30 a.m. Polling stations open in North Carolina. They will stay open until 7:30 p.m.
