Frequently Asked Questions
NOTE: If you choose to vote an unaffilliated ballot you will only vote for non-partisan offices. (ie. Judges or School board)
The registration form must be received at the Board of Elections office no later than 5:00pm on the 25th day prior to the election or postmarked by that date.
If you are not sure of your polling place or you have moved from the residence address currently listed on your voting record, you may call our office: 910-947-3868 or check the status of your voter information online.
If you go to the wrong precinct, you may be required to vote a provisional ballot as you will not be listed on the books at that precinct. Please plan to allow yourself extra time if you choose to go to the wrong precinct, as you will be required to fill out all necessary forms before you are issued a provisional ballot.
~ Vote early at a One-Stop Absentee voting site. NC General Statutes allow voters to change their address and vote the correct ballot for the current address when voting at a One-Stop site.
~ Vote at your new precinct on Election Day by first obtaining a voter transfer slip from your old precinct and taking it to your new precinct.
~ Go straight to the new precinct and vote a provisional ballot. Please allow yourself extra time for the necessary forms to be completed.
If the voter chooses to vote on Election Day or at an One-Stop Absentee Site and is unable to enter the polling place, they may vote outside the polling place in their car. This is called "curbside voting". Each polling place has a designated area for curbside voting that is marked with a sign. When you pull up to the sign you will run over a rubber hose that sets off a buzzer inside the polling place to alert precinct officials that they have a curbside voter.
