SAME-DAY REGISTRATION

Eligible individuals may register and vote during the one-stop early voting period. This “same-day registration” process is currently permitted due to a preliminary injunction granted under a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, but this option remains the subject of ongoing litigation in federal court. Please check the State Board of Elections website at www.ncsbe.gov for updates.

 

OUT-OF-PRECINCT VOTING

Voters who appear on Election Day in the correct county but in the improper precinct may cast a provisional ballot, which will be counted for all contests in which the voter was eligible to participate. This “out-of-precinct voting” is currently permitted due to a preliminary injunction granted under a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, but this option remains the subject of ongoing litigation in federal court. Please check the State Board of Elections website at www.ncsbe.gov for updates.
