Journey Across the 100 is a listening tour that visited all 100 counties in North Carolina to talk with people — regular people, not career politicians — about what’s on their minds as the 2020 election approaches.

Visual journalists from The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer and the McClatchy Company gassed up their vehicles and traveled into cities, towns and rural communities across the state, and they found that North Carolinians have concerns as varied as the vast landscape they inhabit. Logging more than 20,000 miles over six months, this team of roving journalists traveled interstates and Main Streets, parkways and unpaved roads to talk with people of different ages, races, ethnicities and sexual/gender identities.

The result, “Journey Across the 100,” is this interactive video listening tour.
