Early Voting ends Feb. 29!

Here are some tips to help you vote quickly and easily during the Early Voting period. The primary election will be held on March 3.

1. Your completed registration form must have been mailed (postmarked) or delivered in person to your county’s Board of Elections by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7. 

2. If you’re not sure about your registration status, you can look yourself up at the State Board’s voter lookup: (Pro-tip: once you’ve entered the required information and clicked on your name, look for “ACTIVE” next to the “status” listing at the top of your voter record. If you’re ACTIVE, you’re already registered!)

3. Want to know if you’re eligible to register? Need a registration form? Find everything here:

4. You cannot change your party affiliation when registering to vote during the one-stop Early Voting period. (Per NCGS § 163-82.17. Change of party affiliation.) 

5. You can also register and vote — at the same time — during the 17-day one-stop Early Voting period, through Saturday, Feb. 29. To register at an Early Voting location in your county, find yours here: Please bring ONE of the following documents:

*N.C. driver’s license

*Other government photo ID with name and current address

*Utility bill, bank statement, or payroll stub with name and current address

*Student photo ID with a school document showing the student’s address
