- If necessary, update your registration to reflect necessary changes (address, party affiliation, name, etc.)
- Review the voting options available in North Carolina, including absentee by mail, one-stop early voting, military and overseas voting, curbside voting and traditional Election Day voting.
- Remember voter registration deadlines. The regular deadline for the May 8 primary is April 13. The deadline for the November 6 general election is October 12. And of course, you can register and vote at the same time during the 17-day early voting period before each election.
