Election Update After seeing no

Election Update

After seeing no NC blogs listed at either BlogTheVote2002USA of on the Daily Pundit's list of election links, I figured I'd do it myself. Not that there seems to be a great demand for the service, mind you.

The N&O says the turnout is relatively large.

You'll be able to see unofficial State results here. As of 2:30 EST, there are none.

Charlotte residents can see see state and local results here. There are no vote totals, but interestingly enough the site lists how many people are eligible to vote in each election.

United States Senator

0% of precincts complete (0 out of 191) 0% Voter Turnout (0 out of 446105)

Member of Congress District #8

0% of precincts complete (0 out of 30) 0% Voter Turnout (0 out of 59675)

Update: The NC Board of Elections has inadvertently exposed not only the the home addresses of all the candidates running for office, but what appears to be a list of all the people who have cast absentee ballots. I've called people listed in the file, and confirmed they did indeed cast an absentee ballot. The list of files is available here.

Further Update: After fruitlessly trying to contact the NCBOE and the Orange county Director of Elections, I called the Chapel Hill Newspaper and spoke to a reporter there. We'll see what happens next.

Another Update: After further perusal of the file, I've determined that it does not actually contain a code indicating for whom an absentee ballot was cast. I can tell you that slightly more Democrats than Republicans have returned their absentee ballot, though the difference is more than made up by the number of independent absentee ballots returned. I'll post numbers as soon as I figure out whether I can or not.

Some More Update: I finally found someone in the IT department at the NCBOE, and apparently the information is meant to be publicly available. The reporter I talked to has also confirmed this. So I'm free to do with it as I will. I'll start analyzing the DB, but I can tell you that out of 223, 652 absentee ballots mailed out;

Registered Democrats have returned 98,368 ballots
Registered Republicans have returned 89,504 ballots
Independent voters have returned 21,284 ballots

I'd argue that this means Erskine has the advantage, but it's going to depend on how the independent voters break.

113,385 women have cast an absentee ballot.
Of those, 56,824 are Democrats and 56,561 are Republicans.
97,281 are white. Of those, 41,964 are Democrats. 55,317 are Republican
14,993 are black or African American. Of those, 14,326 are are Democrats. 667 are Republican
847 are Other
294 are American Indian
33 are Asian

Men are on the way
