With the 2022 election approaching and voters’ influence varying from state to state, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2022’s States with the Most & Least Powerful Voters.
WalletHub compared the relative clout of 2022 voters in swinging the seats of power in Washington. In order to make such a comparison, they calculated a Voter Power Score for each state.
In the upcoming Midterm House Race, North Carolina was determined to have the 5th most significant voter base in America.

This year, there are a total of 359 early voting sites across our state, which is up 17% from 2018, according t a press release from the State Board of Elections.
“The 100 county boards of elections have spent months preparing for the start of in-person voting for the important 2022 general election,” said SBE executive director Karen Brinson Bell. “The bipartisan election officials who work in each early voting site are prepared for a smooth voting process and to ensure the ballots of all eligible voters are counted.”
You can still register and vote at the same time during the one-stop early voting period, October 20 through November 5, at any early voting site in their county. County-by-county early voting sites and schedules are available at the State Board of Elections’ One-Stop Early Voting Site Search.
On Election Day, November 8, polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Voters who vote on Election Day must go to their assigned polling place. Find your polling place in the Voter Search tool and navigate to “Your Voting Locations.”
