Election Day Voting

Polls are open from 6:30am to 7:30pm on Election Day (Tuesday, November 6).
To vote on Election Day, you must be registered to vote prior to Election Day. You can register to vote during the early voting period (October 18 – November 3). Registration instructions can be found here.
You cannot register to vote and cast a ballot on Election Day.

Check Your Registration

You can look up your registration info to confirm that you are registered and view your polling place on the Voter Look-Up page.  At the page, search for yourself; once you have located your record, click on your name in the result to get more details (such as the precinct and polling place, as well as your sample ballot).

Where can I vote?

On Election Day, you must vote at your specific precinct and assigned polling location, not at the County Board of Elections office or any other One-Stop site.  Find your polling place and precinct by entering your address in the Voter Look-Up page.  If you end up at the wrong precinct on Election Day, you may request a provisional ballot. Find more information on provisional ballots here.

All polling places are open from 6:30 AM to 7:30 PM on Election Day. If you are in line at 7:30 PM, you will be allowed to vote. Some Early Voting centers are not precinct polling places and they will not be open on Election Day.

Can I register and vote on the same day?

Only during early voting. Early voting runs from October 18 through November 3. You cannot register to vote on Election Day.

Do I need to bring identification to vote?

No. Pursuant to the 2016 decision from the 4th U.S. Court of Appeals, North Carolina voters will not be required to show photo ID in the 2016 general election. Click here to learn more.
