Early Voting for the 2018 General Election begins TODAY, Oct 17th

Posted

Wake County voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballots early for the 2018 General Election beginning October 17. Ten sites across the county will open for early voting. Early voting ends at 1 p.m. on November 3.

The Wake County Board of Elections takes many steps to ensure the safety and security of elections. Get a behind-the-scenes look at how Wake County makes sure your vote counts in this video

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, November 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 toward the beginning of the early voting period. Lines are generally the longest on the last few days of early voting.

For other voting information, contact the Wake County Board of Elections at 919-856-6240 or visit WakeVotesEarly.com.
