In the North Carolina General Assembly, the GOP retained veto-proof majorities in both chambers thanks at least in part to gerrymandered legislative districts.

In the North Carolina legislature, Republicans maintained their supermajority in both the House and Senate. That means regardless of who's governor, lawmakers can override him.

It's the day we've been building toward for almost two years.

The 2016 election cycle has been strange, unorthodox, offensive, entertaining, unpredictable, divisive and long.

For more than a year, strategists have tried to use scandals, wedge issues and the media, among other political tools, as candidates chase victory on Election Night. But now, it all comes down to numbers. Here are a few to consider in the final stretch of the campaign.

Time is running out on this election and as we get to the home stretch, North Carolina’s role seems to be becoming more important.

Election Day is tomorrow and this much we know, baring a surprise of historic proportions the next president of the United States will speak in North Carolina on Monday. Both Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump have scheduled last minute stops in what has become the front line of this election. 

Who is voting may be just as scrutinized on Election Day as who wins. And we’re not talking about classic voting blocks.

From the mundane like ballot selfies, to the serious, like claims of rigged elections, fraud or voter intimidation, much of the scrutiny has been fueled on social media.

This is a national narrative. But like many things this election North Carolina finds itself at the center of the story.

And now for something sweet on the eve of the 2016 Election. It’s an issue everyone can support no matter who you’re voting for: the power of desserts. Two bakers in Asheville have resurrected a tasty treat from the 1700’s known as Election cake. WFAE’s Sarah Delia spoke with the bakers who are out to “Make America Cake Again.”

The 2016 campaign is officially rounding the last turn and heading into the home stretch. If you are reading  this, you are also someone who has likely refreshed FiveThirtyEight and Real Clear Politics multiple times in the last hour, so without delay, please download today's WUNCPolitics Podcast.

In our final chat before Election Day Morning Edition host Marshall Terry talks about last minute campaign strategies, early voting results, and this week’s NAACP lawsuit with political analyst Michael Bitzer.
