One-Stop Early Voting Begins Today
Starting Thursday, April 17, North Carolinians can vote early by absentee ballot with no excuse. Simply go to any one-stop early voting location in your county between April 17 and May 3 to cast your ballot.
Would be voters that missed the April 11 deadline to register to vote on May 6th can – for the first time ever in North Carolina – take advantage of our state’s new same-day registration law. Same-day registration allows voters to register and immediately cast a ballot at any one-stop early voting location.
For One-Stop Early Voting locations in your area, visit the State Board of Elections online at www.sboe.state.nc.us or call (919) 733-7173 to get the number for your county board of elections.
There’s a new website that answers loads of questions about voting (and Same Day Registration) for North Carolina’s primary. It allow you to preview your ballot, find Early Voting sites, call a hotline for problems, etc. From the nonpartisan group Democracy NC — check it out: http:www.2008ElectionConnection.com
