Early voting starts today in North Carolina
Starting today, North Carolina voters will have a chance to cast a ballot in-person for the 2022 Primary Election.
During this election, voters can choose which candidates for the state’s open seat in the U.S. Senate, congressional races and legislature seats along with hundreds of local offices across the state. From today until 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, registered voters can cast their ballots at any early voting site in their county.
- To find an early voting site and its hours in your county, use the One-Stop Early Voting Sites search tool at ncsbe.gov.
During the early voting period, eligible individuals can register and vote on the same day if you missed the April 22 voter registration deadline. Make sure you show up with either a photo ID OR a utility bill, bank statement or paycheck with your name and current address on it.

You can also hand-deliver your absentee ballot in-person at any early voting site in your county during early voting hours, or your county board of elections office when it is open and staffed, by 5:00pm on Election Day, May 17. The deadline to request a mail-in ballot is May 10.
