How to Look Up Your Sample Ballot & Voting Precinct
You can look up your sample ballot (along with your Election Day voting location or 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.
Then follow this three-step process to view 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.
Election Day Voting Location (Precinct)
You can also view your Election Day voting location (precinct) using this tool. Click the header that says “Election Day Polling Place.” The location listed is where you can vote on Election Day only – Early Voting sites are different.
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.”
