Press Release:

    RALEIGH, NC     Voters in more than a dozen North Carolina counties will go to the polls on Tuesday, July 26, for municipal general elections, runoffs, and, in Graham and Wake counties, second primaries for sheriff.

    The following contests will be decided on July 26:

  • Six municipalities - Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Hickory, Mooresville, and Sanford - will hold local general elections for mayor and/or city or town council.
  • Other municipalities and boards of education will hold runoff elections for certain local offices. They are: Cary, New Bern, Rocky Mount, Statesville, the Franklin County Board of Education, and the Jackson County Board of Education.
  • Second primaries will be held for the Republican nomination for sheriff in Graham County and the Democratic nomination for sheriff in Wake County.

    The State Board offers the following 10 reminders about Election Day voting:

  1. For voters eligible to vote in the July 26 elections, sample ballots are available through the Voter Search tool. Enter your first and last names to pull up your voter record, then scroll down to the "Your Sample Ballot" section. If a link to a sample ballot is available, the voter is eligible to vote in the July 26 election.
  2. Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Election Day. Voters in line at 7:30 p.m. will be able to cast a ballot.
  3. Voters can find their Election Day polling place through the Voter Search or the Election Day Polling Place Search.
  4. North Carolina residents may not register to vote on Election Day, unless they become eligible after the registration deadline due to becoming a U.S. citizen or having their rights restored following a felony conviction.
  5. Voters are not required to show photo ID to vote. See Voter ID for details.
  6. If you are voting by mail and have not returned your ballot, you may not return your ballot to a polling site on Election Day. You may mail your ballot back or return your ballot, sealed inside the completed envelope, in person to your county board of elections by 5 p.m. on Election Day. Mailed ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day. They must be received by the county board by Friday, July 29. If you mail your ballot on or before Election Day, you may not vote again in person.
  7. Voters who need assistance at the polls must request that assistance. Curbside voting is available for voters who are unable to enter the voting place without assistance due to age or disability. Once inside the polling place, voters who experience difficulties should request help from an election worker. For more information, see the Help for Voters with Disabilities page.
  8. The State Board asks that all voters respect the right of others to participate in the election. Intimidating any voter is a crime. Voters who feel harassed or intimidated should notify an election official immediately.
  9. If you present to vote and your name is not on the voter list, you may request a provisional ballot. About 10 days after an election, voters who cast a provisional ballot can check the status of their ballot with the Provisional Search tool.
  10. On Election Night, unofficial results will be updated as they become available on the Election Results Dashboard.
