Voters in NC shared their stickers on Election Day 2014

An update to the article I wrote last week about Wake County schools being on a two-hour delay on Election Day ...

Two Johnston County schools, both polling places, will be closed on Election Day, Nov. 8. East Clayton Elementary School and River Dell Elementary School will be closed that day.

"This decision was based on the recommendation of the Johnston County Board of Elections due to safety concerns as the result of expected high volume of voters utilizing these schools, parking lots and connecting roads/highways," according to the school system's website.

East Clayton and River Dell students will complete a full day of school on Feb. 23 to make up for the loss of instructional time on Nov. 8. Feb. 23 had been an early release day.
