Local undecided voters weigh impact of debate

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Across the Queen City, thousands of voters watched the final presidential debate Wednesday night.

We watched with several voters, some of who were still questioning how they will cast their vote.

"I've seen for the past two weeks that it's become very negative campaign, mudslinging all around between the email hacking and the sexual assault allegations," voter Allison Avent said.

To see where some Charlotte voters stood on certain issues, NBC Charlotte tried something a little different.

The voters were given a sign with a green side and a red side. Upon hearing a response that they agreed with, they were asked to hold up the green side and red side if they disagreed, regardless of the candidate.

The debate covered topics from marriage equality to Supreme court judges to second amendment and gun control and more. As the controversial topics switched, so did sign colors.

"I think there's a lot of negativity about these candidates and I think that it's two tremendously unpopular people from both parties so I think that's why a lot of people are having trouble making up their mind," said voter Jennifer Gentile. 

Some voters continue to remain torn between the two candidates, however, their time to personally debate the choice is coming to an end. Early voting in North Carolina begins Thursday, October 20 and lasts until November 5th with the general election shortly after.
