WAYS TO VOTE
We will update this page as 2022 dates are released for Early Voting and Election Day.
Early Voting for the primary elections has yet to be determined. The county board of elections determines the sites and operating hours for early voting for each election.
You can vote at any early voting location and may update your name or address if needed. You may also register at early voting sites but must attest to your eligibility and prove residence by showing:
- North Carolina driver license
- Other photo identification issued by a government agency
- A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document showing the voter's name and address
- A current college/university photo identification card along with proof of campus residence
Within two business days of registration, the county board of elections will verify the driver license or social security number, update the voter registration database, search for possible duplicate registrations, and verify the registrant's address by mail. The registrant's vote will be counted unless the county board of elections determines that he or she is not qualified to vote.
You can find your Election Day voting location by entering your address in the Polling Place Search tool. You must go to your assigned voting location to vote on Election Day. If you vote in another location, you may be asked to vote a provisional ballot.
You can also search your name using the Voter Lookup Tool to find your polling place and view your sample ballot and jurisdictions.
***This is a great tool if you need to confirm your District, Voting Location, or Sample Ballot.
Any registered voter in Union County can request a mail-in ballot by completing a State Absentee Ballot Request Form and mailing to Union County Board of Elections, P.O. Box 1106, Monroe, NC 28111 or through the North Carolina State Board of Elections' absentee ballot request portal. Absentee by mail voting will be available for the 2022 elections.
No special circumstance or reason is needed to vote a mail-in absentee ballot in North Carolina.
