As Election Day in Pitt County continued, for Pitt County resident Nola Dixon, reflecting on the history and importance of voting is what gets her out to vote.

“Looking at all of the histories and the things that people had to endure, getting out, exercising your right to vote, advantage to vote, privilege to vote, that’s very important to me, and knowing that your vote does count,” Dixon said.

Dixon encourages people to get out and vote because there are many important factors that play into this year’s election.

“You have to vote at every level, at every election year, whether it’s at the national or local, you have to get out and push your vote, and in this particular case, it’s very important because a lot of it is at stake. You know, who will take back the House, who will control the Senate,” Dixon said.
