ORANGE COUNTY – The Orange County Board of Elections approved the four locations where you can do your early voting this year. The locations still need approval by the state’s Board of Elections.
Early voting starts October 17 and continues until November 2. There is no early voting on the weekends, with the exception of November 2, which is a Saturday. The General Assembly’s bill that would shorten early voting periods would not affect these dates.
Hillsborough voters can vote at the Board of Elections office at 208 S. Cameron Street, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. On November 2, the polling site is only open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Carrboro Town Hall and the Rams Head Dining Hall, located at 320 Ridge Road in Chapel Hill, are both open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except on November 2 when it is only open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Chapel Hill voters can also go to the Seymour Senior Center at 2551 Homestead Road. The site is open from noon to 6:00 p.m., except on November 2 when it is only open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Absentee voting is still available, with ballots available at the Orange County Board of Elections website. Ballots should be mailed to PO Box 220, Hillsborough, N.C., 27278.
