WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT CURBSIDE VOTING

Every voting site in North Carolina offers curbside voting for anyone who cannot make it inside without physical assistance due to age or disability. 

The curbside voting is open to more than just voters with physical or mental disabilities.

The State Board of Elections said anyone with a medical condition that puts you at risk for coronavirus, someone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or anyone who doesn't wear a mask due to health issues, can utilize curbside voting.

In addition to curbside voting, some sites offer a walk-up area outside the polling place, in addition to a drive-up area.

When you go vote, just look for the curbside voting location signs.
