IN-PERSON ON ELECTION DAY

VOTE EARLY IN-PERSON
One-Stop Early Voting
Any registered voter or eligible individual may cast an absentee ballot in person during the early voting period. In North Carolina, this period is sometimes called “one-stop early voting.”
One-stop early voting site information is available now for the 2020 general election:
In 2020, the in-person early voting period begins Thursday, October 15, and ends Saturday, October 31. During early voting, voters may cast a ballot at any early voting site in their county. This is different from Election Day when registered voters must vote at their assigned precinct.
