Voting in Person Process

The polls are open on Election Day from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Check your voter registration, find your polling place and check your voting districts.

Voting Within Your Precinct

On Election Day, as a registered voter, you must:

  1. Report to your designated Election Day precinct. The name, location, and, address of your Election Day precinct may be found by checking your record using the Voter Lookup Tool, referring to the registration card mailed to you when you registered or by calling the Board of Elections office at (910) 253-2620. Due to the heavy call volume on Election Day, it is advised to call and inquire about your voting location prior to Election Day itself.
  2. Go to the check in station and state your name and residence address. If it is a primary election, unaffiliated voters must also state in which party’s primary they would like to participate. For more information about unaffiliated voters and primary elections, please refer to the Type of Elections section of this website.
  3. Sign an Authorization to Vote (ATV) document certifying that you are a US citizen, have completed a felony sentence (if you have been convicted), your address is current, and you have not already voted.
  4. After signing, you will be directed to the ballot station where you will exchange the ATV form for a ballot.
  5. Once the ballot is received, you will be directed to a voting booth and mark it with the pen provided inside the booth.
  6. Once the ballot is marked, you will be directed to a scanner where you will insert the ballot.  You know your ballot has been cast when you see the American flag wave on the scanner screen.

Assistance to Voters

NCGS 163-166.8: “(a) Any registered voter qualified to vote in the election shall be entitled to assistance with entering and exiting the voting booth and in preparing ballots in accordance with the following rules:

  1. Any voter is entitled to assistance from the voter’s spouse, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, stepparent, or stepchild, as chosen by the voter.
  2. Any voter in any of the following four categories shall be entitled to assistance from a person of the voter’s choice, other than the voter’s employer or agent of that employer or officer or agent of the voter’s union:
    • One who, on account of physical disability, is unable to enter the voting booth without assistance;
    • One who, on account of physical disability, is unable to mark his ballots without assistance;
    • One who, on account of illiteracy, is unable to mark his ballots without assistance;
    • One who, on account of blindness, is unable to enter the voting booth or mark his ballots without assistance.

A precinct election official may provide assistance to any voter if the voter specifically asks the precinct official to do so and so long as the precinct official is not the voter’s employer, agent of that employer, or an officer or agent of the voter’s union. Precinct officials are also prohibited from giving voters their opinions about candidates or other ballot items

Curbside Voting

In any election or referendum, if any qualified voter is able to travel to the voting place, but because of age or physical disability and physical barriers encountered at the voting place is unable to enter the voting enclosure to vote in person without physical assistance, that voter shall be allowed to vote either in the vehicle conveying that voter or in the immediate proximity of the voting place…” NCGS 163-166.9
