— The Wake County Board of Elections is experiencing an extremely high volume of voter registration and updates – more than 25,000 since Oct. 1, officials said.

Processing that volume of applications was expected to cause a delay in mailing some voter registration cards. Cards are not required to vote.

Voters who registered to vote or sent in an update prior to the Oct. 10 deadline will be processed and voter cards will be mailed prior to the election.

    Early voting starts next week and lasts about 2 weeks. You can vote at area malls and other places in your neighborhood. Don't wait until November 4 to stand in line.

    During the time you took to write your comment here, you could have called/arranged to take a needy person to get registered.

    There are still MANY that need to get registered for Obama.

    Obama is our savior. According to Pelosi, he is a gift from God.

    That statement is pretty scary.

    In 2000/2004, dems screamed voter fraud. When dems took over congress in 2006, no screams of voter fraud. Only when they lose do they seem to cry foul.

    Registering is great, but they dont count it unless you show up and vote!!
