Look Up Your Election Day Precinct

You can look up your Election Day voting location (precinct), and your voting districts through a three-step process on the State Board of Elections voter lookup tool.

We provide instructions on how to complete this process below.

How to Look Up Your Election Day Precinct

  1. Once you arrive at the Voter Lookup Tool, enter your first and last names as they appear on your voter registration record. Don’t enter a middle name. It’s not necessary to enter your birth date or county unless you have a very common name. Click “Search.”

About new district lines

The boundary lines of many N.C. State House, N.C. State Senate, and U.S. Congressional districts were recently redrawn as a result of the 2020 Census. Some precincts were divided differently than in past years so you may receive a different ballot than your neighbors.

You can view all of your voting districts (for local, state, and national offices) in the voter lookup tool explained above.  See the image below for where to find them under the heading “Your Jurisdictions.”
