Election Day is Tuesday; polls in NC open at 6:30 a.m.

Today is the big day -- Election Day.

Beginning at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, voters can cast their national and municipal ballots at the nearly 2,700 open precincts across North Carolina.

The N.C. State Board of Elections urges North Carolinians to remember several important things as they vote:

  • Polls across North Carolina are open Tuesday from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Those in line at 7:30 p.m. will be able to cast their ballot as lines in some locations tend to be longer before and after normal business hours.
  • Same-day registration is not available on Election Day. As of Nov. 5, nearly 6.9 million people were registered to vote in North Carolina.

  • Voters who need assistance at the polls must request that assistance. Individuals who are unable to enter the polling place may vote curbside. Once inside the polling place, voters who experience difficulties may alert a poll worker to request help.
  • The State Board of Elections asks that all voters respect the right of others to participate in the election. Intimidating any voter is a crime. Also, please be courteous toward others at the voting place, regardless of differences of opinion, and remain calm at all times. If at any time a voter feels harassed or intimidated at a polling place, the voter should notify an election official immediately.
