North Carolina voters will have the opportunity Tuesday to choose primary candidates for dozens of state and federal offices, including a highly competitive U.S. Senate seat and the state Supreme Court.

Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Whether you're a registered Republican or Democrat, you have to vote in the primary for the party you're registered with.

If you're unaffiliated, you'll be asked whether you want a Republican, Democrat or Libertarian ballot.

Voters will not be required to show a photo ID in order to vote during the 2014 statewide primary and general election period. That change is scheduled to begin in 2016.

For more information and to find out where to vote, visit your county’s Board of Elections.

FOX8 will have continuing coverage of results and reactions.
