Early voting, also known as One-Stop Absentee Voting, allows any registered voter to cast their absentee ballot in person on select days prior to the Election Day. One-Stop voting begins on the second Thursday (12 days) prior to Election Day and ends on the last Saturday before the election at 1:00 pm. Locations and times vary for One-Stop Voting, but is is often at the County Board of Elections Office; Counties may designate alternative or additional sites. Check with your County Board of Elections for the most up to date One-Stop sites and times.
You may change your name or address at a One-Stop Voting site, but if you are not registered in the county, you may not register to vote during early voting.
Can I register and vote the same day?
No! North Carolina no longer allows Same Day Registration during Early Voting (or on Election Day).
