RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- We are just 10 days away from Election Day and a dwindling paper supply is creating concerns about ballots.

Tens of millions of paper ballots are needed, but with the global transition to digital and virtual work, demand for paper has plunged.

ABC11 spoke with State Board of Elections officials who say North Carolina is in good shape.

Early voting is taking place now in NC through November 5.
