One Stop Early Voting in North Carolina starts today. In Durham County there are 7 locations you can go to vote early in person. If you are not yet registered to vote, you can register on the spot and vote right away. Polling places, in general, will be open from 9am to 5:30pm Monday through Saturday. This Sunday, the 19th of October, they will be open from 12pm to 3pm and next Sunday, the 26th of October they will be open from 12pm to 5:30pm. As we get closer to the election, there are extended hours. Thursday & Friday, October 30 & 31, the polls will be open from 9am to 7pm. But, beware, the last day the polls are open for One Stop Early Voting, Saturday, November 1, they are only open from 9am to 1pm.
Election officials are expecting a large turnout but officials are planning on staying open to accomodate everyone in line at the time the polls close. So, with all the options available to vote early, there really is no excuse for not voting. If you want to know who the candidates are, there are several locations you can go to find that information:
- WRAL Meet the Candidates page.
- IndyWeek Candidates Questionnaires.
- Durham Herald-Sun Elections page.
In addition, unlike during the primary, there will be Kids Voting in the November election. Find out more information about that at the Kids Voting Durham webpage.
