Register to Vote by April 11th

By Kay Castillo, Director of Advocacy, Policy and Legislation, NASW North Carolina

May 6th Primary Election will be the FIRST chance NC voters have to go to the polls following the significant Election Reform done during the 2013 legislative session. The primaries are a really important place to exercise your right to vote as an NC citizen. And we want you to be aware of the changes before it’s too late for you to vote!

Summary of NC’s New Voting Laws

This year, people will no longer be allowed to register to vote during the one-stop voting period.

The deadline to register to vote is Friday, April 11th by 5:00 pm!
Tuesday, April 29th is the LAST day to request an absentee ballot by mail. 

Key Election Dates for NC Primary 2014
