Why use Early Voting?

KEEP IN MIND Registering to vote on-site when you vote is NOT available on Election Day.

Where can I Vote Early?

You can vote early at any Early Voting site in your county. Each county has its own site(s). Hours and days of the week in operation may vary by site.

NOTE Early Voting sites are different than your Election Day voting location. You need to know the North Carolina county you live in.
