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.”
