As the March 15 primary approaches, recent changes in state voting law are adding an extra layer of confusion for North Carolinians navigating the path to the polls. It is vital for voters to be prepared for the election on March 15.
Under North Carolina law, the last day to register for the March 15 primary was Feb. 19. If you failed to register last week, you can still vote during the early voting period, which is scheduled to last from March 3 to March 12. During early voting, you can go to an early voting site, register, and vote in one stop.
There is no same-day registration on Election Day (March 15). During the early voting period, registered voters can cast a ballot at any of the designated early voting sites in their county. Check with your local county Board of Elections for information on where early voting sites are located and when they will be open.
