North Carolina has a two-week period of early voting and you can vote on weekends during that time frame. The early voting period is underway, it started on October 15th and ends on October 31st. The three things to remember about this early voting period. You can still vote:

  1. If you are not registered to vote you can register and vote all at the same time;
  2. If you need to update your name (i.e.; due to marriage) or your address if you have moved within the same county; and
  3. At any precinct in the county in which you live. The larger counties, such as Wake, have several polling places. Most small counties allow voting at the County Board of Elections.

You can also return an Absentee Ballot at your early voting site. However, only you, a near relative (a spouse, parent, grandparent, sibling, child, grandchild, mother-in-law or father-in-law, son-in-law, or daughter-in-law, stepparent or stepchild) or legal guardian may hand-deliver the envelope containing your Absentee Ballot.
