Wake County voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots now for the 2018 General Election, since early voting began Oct. 17. Ten sites across the county opened for early voting, which ends at 1 p.m. on Nov. 3.

Five Things You Should Know Before You Vote Early

  1. Eligible Wake County voters may vote at any Wake County early voting site. See locations and the full schedule here.
  2. If you forgot to register to vote, you can do same day registration during early voting. You will need to show proof of your current address to register. You will not be able to do same day registration on Election Day, Nov. 6. Learn about requirements here.
  3. If you are a registered voter who has moved, you can update your address during early voting or on Election Day. Keep in mind that it will be quicker to update your address during early voting.
  4. The Wake County Board of Elections offers an interactive map to help you find the nearest early voting site. Enter your address, and you’ll find site details, voting dates and hours, and driving directions.
  5. You may avoid long lines by voting towards the beginning of the early voting period. Lines are generally the longest on the last few days of early voting.

When voters cast ballots between Oct. 17 and Nov. 6, in addition to choosing members of Congress, state lawmakers, county commissioners, school board members, sheriffs and judges, they will also be asked to consider six proposed amendments to the North Carolina constitution.
