Where to Vote Election Day
& Look Up Your Sample Ballot
You can look up your Election Day voting location (precinct) and sample ballot through a three-step process on the State Board of Elections voter lookup tool. We provide instructions on how to complete this process below.
⚠️ Remember, you must vote at your assigned voting location (precinct) on Election Day (this is different from the sites used for Early Voting).
Then follow this three-step process to download your sample ballot and find your Election Day precinct.
#1 — 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.”
#2 — Click on your name from the list of similar names to see a profile of your registration, including your precinct’s Election Day polling place, the jurisdictions you live in, and a link to your Sample Ballot.
#3 – Below the heading, “Sample Ballot,” click on the letter/number to the right of the current Election date on the page with your registration profile. This will bring up a new page with your sample ballot.
If you have questions, please call our hotline at 888-OUR-VOTE (888-687-8683) or the State Board of Elections at 866-522-4723
About new district lines
The boundary lines of many N.C. State House, N.C. State Senate, and U.S. Congressional districts were redrawn after the 2010 Census and various court rulings. Some precincts were divided between, say, two state House Districts; as a result, neighbors in their same precinct may receive different ballots even though they go to the same polling place to vote on Election Day.
