We are coming to the end of the time for voting. Early Voting ends this Saturday, November 1. (Check with your local board of elections for the places and hours for Early Voting in your county.) Election Day is Tuesday, November 4. Polls will be open across the state from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Our friends at Democracy NC operate a toll-free Voter Protection Hotline. If you or anyone you know encounters problems with being allowed to vote, call immediately for help. Write down the phone number and take it with you to vote. It’s 888-OUR-VOTE. That’s 888-687-8683.
Remember that you do NOT have to show a photo ID in order to vote this year. Precinct workers may ask if you have one, but they can’t prevent you from voting this year if you do not. If you have any trouble with this, by all means call the Voter Protection Hotline.
