If we don’t seize this pandemic moment, vote in unprecedented numbers, AND do everything we can to push for universal healthcare during this election cycle, we can’t expect much to change after the election. So let’s get to work! Have you made your plan to vote yet? If yes, what about your family and friends? Here’s a quick overview of how to have your say in who represents you. Remember that ID is not required to vote in 2020.
- Request your ballot online and mail it in or drop it off at your board of elections or your One-Stop voting site. https://votebymail.ncsbe.gov.
- Then, mark your calendar for a week after you mailed your ballot to use the online Ballot Tracker to confirm it was received and accepted. https://northcarolina.ballottrax.net/voter/
Vote early in person!
- One-stop early voting begins Thursday, October 15 and ends Saturday, October 31.
- You can register to vote, update your name and address, drop off your absentee ballot, and, if eligible, vote curbside.
- Find your One-Stop early voting sites at https://vt.ncsbe.gov/ossite/
Vote in person on Election Day!
- Polling sites are open from 6:30am to 7:30pm on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
Vote Safely and Minimize your Risk. Polling sites are usually busiest early in the morning and late afternoon hours. If possible, vote during non-peak hours. Adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear a face covering. Masks, hand sanitizers, and pens will be provided.
