We’ve watched as the presidential primary election has rolled across the nation, and now it’s finally North Carolina's turn! Early voting starts today (March 3) here in North Carolina, and MomsRising wants to make sure you’re ready with all you need to know.
Voting dates: You can either vote at an early voting location from Thursday, March 3, until Saturday, March 12, or at your polling place on Primary Election Day on Tuesday, March 15.
Registration: If you have not already registered, you can register and vote using same-day registration during the Early Voting period at your county’s early voting locations. This option is not available on March 15.
Got voting questions? There have been a lot of changes to NC voting laws recently, and we want to make sure you get all your questions answered. Today, March 3rd at 3 pm, MomsRising will be participating in a tweet chat sponsored by nonpartisan voting rights organization Democracy North Carolina that’s designed to answer all your voting questions. Follow and join the chat at #VOTEHOTchat and chime in with any questions you have.
