North Carolina’s 2022 General Election will take place on November 8. All active, registered North Carolina voters are eligible to vote in the general election.
There are three ways to vote: by mail (absentee), early voting, or Election Day.
To vote by mail, you must request an absentee ballot through your State Board of Elections’ Absentee Ballot Portal. The deadline to submit a request is November 1 at 5 p.m. Your return ballot must be postmarked by Election Day, November 8, 2022, and received no later than 5 p.m. November 14, 2022.– and remember to sign the ballot envelope! You can track the status of your absentee ballot online.
Most early voting locations open the week of October 20 and remain open until November 5 at 3 p.m. Unlike on Election Day, you do not have to vote at an assigned polling location during early voting. Also, if you have not yet registered to vote, you can still do so at an Early Voting site. You can find nearby early voting locations by visiting your State Board of Elections website.
Prefer to vote on Election Day? You will need to visit your designated precinct, which can be found by visiting your State Board of Elections website. You can also find a Sample Ballot when you look up your Registration. Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and if you have voted in North Carolina before, you do not need to show ID to vote. Any voters waiting in line at 7 p.m. will still be able to cast their ballots.
