It’s time to cast your ballots. Early voting begins Thursday which means any Orange County registered voter can stop by the Orange County One-Stop Early Sites and cast their vote.
Thursday and Friday, those who wish to vote early can head over to the Board of Elections on Cameron Street in Hillsborough from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. That’s the only site open this week.
From Monday, October 23 through October 30, early voters can go to four different sites to place their vote, the Board of Elections in Hillsborough, Carrboro Town Hall, Chapel of the Cross on East Franklin Street and the Seymour Senior Center on Homestead Road.
The Board of Elections and Carrboro Town Hall will be open for voting October 23-27 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, October 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., October 30 through November 3 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, November 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Chapel of the Cross and the Seymour Senior Center will be open for voting October 23-27 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
On Saturday, October 28 only the Seymour Senior Center will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Chapel of the Cross will be closed due to a UNC Football game.
Both sites will be open October 30 through November 3 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, November 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All Sites will close at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31.
During early voting, those who are eligible can register to vote if they have not already, update addresses or information on their registration, and vote all in the same visit.
Party Changes during early voting are not allowed.
Individuals voting must bring an approved HAVA ID that shows their name and current address, such as a bank statement, driver’s license or utility bill.
Those who are unable to meet registration requirements at the time they present to vote can vote a Provisional Ballot which will then be researched and considered for approval or denial by the Board on canvass day.
Orange County also offers absentee voting by mail to all Orange County registered voters and residents can submit the required Absentee Ballot Request in person or by mail.
