Here is where you can early vote in Mecklenburg County

33 early voting sites will open in Mecklenburg County on Thursday.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Early voting begins Thursday, October 15 in North Carolina at 33 sites across Mecklenburg County, and at locations statewide.

This in-person voting allows voters to cast their ballots ahead of Election Day.

There are key differences between early voting and traditional voting on Election Day.

  • During early voting, registered voters can vote at any early voting location in their county. Unlike on Election Day, they do not need to visit the designated voting site for their precinct.
  • Those not yet registered can register to vote during the early voting period at any of the early voting locations. This is called "one-stop" voting, where someone can register and vote in the same visit. The same rules apply from the earlier voter registration period: you must be a U.S. citizen, you must live in that county, you must be at least least 18 years old, must not be serving a sentence for a felony conviction. (Here are more details on who is eligible to vote.)

In North Carolina, early voting starts October 15, 2020, and ends October 31, 2020. In South Carolina, the rules are different but still allow voters to cast ballots before Election Day.
