Voters at Belmont Central Elementary School cast ballots in the 2020 election.

The election helped answer a question that community organizer James Lee posed outside Charlotte's West Boulevard branch library on the final day of early voting: "Where will we be going in the future? What is America?"

North Carolina delivered its answers at the ballot box in record numbers.

With the votes in battleground states, including North Carolina, still being processed, what lies ahead for the state and the country?
