How do I find my Early Voting sites?

You can look up your Early Voting locations via the N.C. State Board of Elections Locator Module

We hear from a lot of people that the N.C. State Board of Elections Early Voting “look up” isn’t always easy to navigate. So, before sending you to the North Carolina Board of Elections’ Early Voting Locator module, we ask that you please read the following instructions to find your county’s Early Voting options:

#1 — Click here to open the N.C. Board of Election “One-Stop Site Locator.”

#2 — Select your county from the drop-down menu listed on the above site.

# 3 — Click “Find sites.”

#  4 — A list and map of the sites in your county will appear. Click the name of your preferred site (for example, the one closest to your home or work) to see the Early Voting hours available at that site.

That’s it ~ please share this page with friends and family so they can find their Early Voting options too!
