  • Clearing voting booths of campaign literature left behind by voters.
  • Providing a trash can in the voting enclosure in which voters may discard campaign items if they choose to.
  • Refraining from wearing clothing, pins, etc. that display a preference for a candidate or political party.

In any primary or election any qualified voter who 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 place or enclosure to vote in person without physical assistance, shall be allowed to vote either in the vehicle conveying such person to the voting place or in the immediate proximity of the voting place. . ." 

Each polling place is equipped with an alert system for Curbside Voters.

  • Pull up to the "Curbside Voting" sign.
  • Within a few moments a precinct official should come out to your car.
  • You will be asked to sign an affidavit stating that you cannot physically come in to vote.
  • After the precinct official has found you on the rolls, they will issue you a ballot.

The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) allows for any person voting a provisional ballot to be entitled to know the reason why their vote was counted, if it was not counted or if it was partially counted.

What are Provisional Ballots?

A Provisional Ballot is a ‘voted’ ballot, which is preserved and protected in a certification envelope until the voter’s qualifications are determined. If the voter is determined qualified, the ballot is counted on Canvass Day. If the voter is determined not eligible the ballot envelope remains sealed.


The intent of fail-safe voting (provisional ballots) is such that those who are eligible to vote are allowed to do so without disturbing the integrity of the elections. It also protects the integrity of the elections by not counting the provisional ballots of those persons not qualified to vote.

Status of Provisional Ballots

The county Elections Board will formally meet to review all provisional ballots.  You can access the State Board of Elections website or call the State Board of Elections to learn if your ballot was counted. 
 

How to check the status of your provisional ballot:

 
You will need to provide the following information:
(This information can be found on the Provisional Voter Call-in Instruction sheet given to you by the precinct worker)

  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Personal Identification Number (PIN)

 
Information available:  the second Monday after the election date
Website:                      www.ncsbe.gov/PVPINSearch
Contact Number:         1 (866) 522-4723 (During normal business hours)

 

**Protect your PIN!  The PIN is your key to this information.  If you lose your PIN, you must visit the Board of Elections in person to determine if your ballot was counted.
 

If you voted provisionally because you did not show required identification at the Registration Table, your ballot cannot be counted until the Board of Elections receives acceptable proof of identification:

  • copy of current and valid photo identification or a copy of current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.

 
You may mail, fax or hand deliver your proof of identification to the Moore County Board of Elections office.  It must be received before the official Canvass meeting following the election.

M100 Optical Scan Tabulator

M100ballotcounter

Marking the Ballot:
After you have been issued a ballot, mark your ballot using the pens provided in the voting booth.  COMPLETELY fill in the oval beside the candidate or issue of your choice.  (the machine WILL NOT read an X or check mark)  Only mark the number of choices allowed for each contest.  To write in a candidate, fill in the oval beside "write-in" and write the name of your choice.  Review your selections; if you need to make changes, please ask a precinct official for a new ballot.

Casting your ballot:
Once your ballot is complete, take it to the M100 Tabulator and feed it into the machine.  If the machine has a problem with your ballot it will beep and a precinct worker will assist you at that time.
 
If the ballot is accepted into the Tabulator then your ballot has been cast.
