Absentee Voting

Registered voters can request an absentee ballot by using the State Absentee Request Form.  The last day to submit an absentee request is Tuesday, November 1.

Sample Ballots

The General Election ballot contains 33 contests and a bond referendum.  This equates to 5 pages on the voting machine, plus 3 pages to review your choices – it is a long ballot!  Did you know that you can print your sample ballot, mark it to reflect your choices, and take it into the voting booth with you?  Visit our website to get a copy of your sample ballot.

Same Day Registration

Not sure if you are registered to vote?  Use the voter lookup tool to check your registration.  If you did not register to vote prior to the deadline and have lived in Brunswick County more than 30 days before the election, you can register and vote during one-stop early voting.  You will be required to provide acceptable proof of residence before you can become registered.  The Notice to Same Day Registrants provides more details, including a list of acceptable proof of residence documents.  Same day registration is only available during one-stop early voting; it is not available on election day.

 Election Day

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8; the polls will be open from 6:30 am until 7:30 pm.  On Election Day, voters are encouraged to go to their assigned precinct which can be found using the voter lookup tool.

    • Photo ID requirement contained in Part 2 of Session Law 2013-381, as amended by Session Law 2015-103;
    • Removal of preregistration contained in Part 12 of Session Law 2013-381;
    • Elimination of same-day registration contained in Part 16 of Session Law 2013-381;
    • Changes to early voting contained in Part 25 of Session Law 2013-381; and
    • Elimination of out-of-precinct voting contained in Part 49 of Session Law 2013-381.
