Residents who haven’t yet registered to vote can do so at their early voting site.  Most county board of elections’ offices offer one-stop voting, but residents can find out the exact locations of their county’s early voting sites by visiting the state board of elections website.  

North Carolina has semi-closed primaries, meaning unaffiliated voters can choose to vote in any party’s primary election, but registered Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians must vote in their own party’s primary.
