One-Stop Voting

Upon the determination of the One-Stop implementation plan you will be able to find a printable version of the 2022 Statewide Primary Election One-Stop dates, times and locations, and a printable map of the One-Stop Voting Locations here.
Once the  One-Stop early voting period has begun for the 2022 Statewide Primary Election you will also be able to access the One-Stop Wait Time Tracker here. Check back as the elections draw closer for this and more!

One-stop absentee voting (commonly known as “early voting”) allows any registered voter to cast an absentee ballot in person on select days prior to Election Day. One-Stop voting allows voters an opportunity to vote when it best suits individual schedules.  For the 2022 Statewide Primary Election, the in-person early voting period begins Thursday, April 28, and ends Saturday, May 14. During early voting, voters may cast a ballot at any early voting site in their county. This is different from Election Day when registered voters must vote at their assigned precinct.

At the voting location, you will vote much like you would on Election Day. The difference is you will be required to complete and sign an absentee request application prior to voting. Afterwards, you will obtain your ballot and make your selections. Completed ballots are placed in the ballot tabulator by the voter. Once you have submitted your application and executed the process of voting, the county board of elections will review your application and either approve or deny the submission.

Same-Day Registration

Persons who are not registered in a county may register to vote during the one-stop early voting period. This process is called “Same-Day Registration” and it is permitted under state law.

To use same-day registration, a person must complete a voter registration application and show an election official proof of residential address in the county.  This “proof of address” may consist of a current and valid photo ID or a document showing the name and current address of the applicant. To be current, the document must be the most recent version or at least dated within three (3) months of the date it is presented to an election official. Copies of acceptable “name and current address” documents are permissible. It is also permissible for a voter to present an electronic or online version of a “name and current address” document, as long as the document is obtained from the original source (e.g., e-Bills from utility companies, electronic bank statements, electronic earnings statement from employer, etc.) and shows his or her current name and address.

Proof of residence for college students includes a current college/university photo identification card paired with either (1) any document originating with the educational institution and containing the student’s name and on-campus housing address or facility name; or (2) a current roster prepared by the college/university and transmitted to the county board of elections office, which lists all students residing in campus housing facilities.  In New Hanover County, we use the second option to assist UNCW students with the same-day registration process.  Click here to learn more about registering as a college student in North Carolina.

Within two business days of the person’s registration, the county board of elections will verify the person’s driver license or social security number, update the voter registration database, search for possible duplicate registrations, and proceed to verify the registrant’s address by mail. The registrant’s vote will be counted unless the county board of elections determines that the registrant is not qualified to vote.
