Welcome to Primary Day in North Carolina.

The presidential race tops the ballot as North Carolinians head to the voting polls today in a campaign that has had plenty of excitement but brought very little joy.

Thousands in Durham County have already voted at 11 early voting sites, including one Duke campus site at the Freeman Center. And because this year's primary was pushed forward to March, the nation is closely watching how Tar Heels vote in the two presidential primaries.

The above video gets you ready by showcasing unexpected facts about American presidents, set to images of early voting at Duke. You may know who the tallest President was, but do you know who was the shortest? Find out the answer to that question and more.

Below, here is more coverage from Duke Today, Duke Campaign Stop 2016 and elsewhere related to the election.
