RALEIGH — The early voting period for the Tuesday, May 17 statewide primary begins Thursday and ends at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 14.

During early voting, voters may cast a ballot at any early voting site in their county, and would-be voters may same-day register and vote.

This is different than Election Day, where registered voters must vote at their assigned polling place.  

Voters can view the early voting locations in their county at www.ncsbe.gov.
