Election Results...Corrected Version

I haven't been able to locate official Hyde County election results just for Ocracoke precinct, but I did get the following island numbers from the Ocracoke Current:

President: Hillary Clinton, 318; Donald Trump, 158 (see comments for explanation of correction)
US Senate: Deborah Ross, 320; Richard Burr, 159
NC Governor: Roy Cooper 373, Pat McCrory 123
US Representative (3rd District): Walter Jones beat Ernest Reeves, but I don't have the figures.

Voting is a right and a privilege we exercise as citizens of a free and democratic society. 

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is about earthquakes that have affected Ocracoke and the Outer Banks. You can read the newsletter here:  


  1. A lot of folks skipped the presidential race it appears unless they voted third party?

    1. Tom, I noticed that also. Since there were only 51 other presidential votes cast county-wide (Johnson got 42; write-ins got 9), even if all of them were cast on Ocracoke that still leaves more than 200 islanders who did not vote for any candidate.

    2. I just published corrected figures. I originally had listed 142 votes for Clinton and 91 votes for Trump. But those figures did not include early voting numbers: 176 for Clinton and 67 for Trump. Thus the correct totals are 318 Ocracoke votes for Clinton and 158 for Trump.
