New Ballots in Beaufort County

Do you ever get confused in the voting booth? They're trying to make things a little easier for you in Beaufort County. The board of elections added some extra space between the two columns on the ballot. The close columns confused some absentee voters. They hope the extra space makes it easier to see which box is for which candidate.

"With both columns bumped up next to each other, it was creating some confusion for some people," noted Agnes Garvin of the BOE.

They expect 50 to 60 percent turnout in Beaufort County.
