JONAS RIDGE, NC (WBTV) -
Voters in the North Carolina Mountains had to battle more than just lines at the polls on Election Day. In most areas, it was snowing for much of the day.
In Jonas Ridge, in Northern Burke County, more than an inch of snow had fallen by midmorning with the white stuff continuing to fall.
"It won't stop me from voting," said Royce Hohn. He got to the polls by driving a moped about two miles in the cold and snow. "I was determined," he said. Others said they were determined as well. "It was not going to stop me, that's for sure," said one woman as she walked to her voting precinct at the Jonas Ridge Volunteer Fire Department.
Turnout at the precinct was strong, said officials. Early voting combined with the numbers expected today could mean as high as an 80-percent turnout for the precinct. "It is just wonderful," said Burke County Elections Board Chair Trossie Wall.
Wall had been touring voting precincts across Burke County and said he was surprised at the snowfall in Jonas Ridge when he drove up the mountain but was not surprised at the turnout. "People are excited about this election," he said.
At mid-afternoon, snowfall was continuing in the elevations above 3000 feet. Despite the precipitation, major highways remain clear. Highway crews are monitoring roads for any signs of trouble
The polls in North Carolina remain open until 7:30 p.m.
