Voters across North Carolina may see rain on Election Day, but forecasts suggest it won't be enough to keep them from going to the polls.
Meteorologist Casey Dail of the National Weather Service office in Morehead City said an area of low pressure will move off the North Carolina coast on Wednesday. Dail said the potential nor'easter will dump up to 2 inches of rain along the Outer Banks, although the brunt of the storm isn't expected before the polls close.
Dail said there is a threat of minor sound-side flooding in eastern Carteret County and the Outer Banks adjacent to Albemarle and Pamlico sounds. She said there could be ocean overwash north of Cape Hatteras.
West of Interstate 95, there's a slight chance of rain during voting period.  

Statewide Tuesday, voting polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.
