Voters in battleground North Carolina are seeing demographic changes in their state that have put it within reach of either Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
“As our state evolves, I’m excited to see people adjust to the fact we are no longer Jim Crow North Carolina,” said Renee Adams, 45, an addiction counselor and mother of three, at Clinton’s election eve midnight rally in Raleigh. “It’s history in the making – why not start election day celebrating what’s going to be one of the most memorable times in U.S. history?”
Ian Bowater, a writer and playwright from Britain, who for decades considered himself "a man of the world,” was so moved by the Tar Heel state’s status that he became a U.S. citizen this year so he could vote for the first time. He cast an early ballot for Clinton. “Here your vote really counts,” he said.
