Voter Information

Election Day is coming up fast on Tuesday, March 15. Norm is the only Democratic nominee for the NC Senate District 48 seat, so you won't vote for him until November 2016. However, there are other candidates to vote for, and the important Connect NC Bond referendum (vote YES!). To see why Norm will be voting yes, check out the "Issues" page on this site.

Absentee voting by mail is now available for the primary election, and between now and Election Day there are plenty of opportunities to make your voice heard. So, here's the latest on important election dates to save and share with friends, family and followers.

Important election dates to save and share:

Friday, February 19 – Voter registration regular deadline for March Primary

Thursday, March 3 – Early voting period begins for March Primary

Tuesday March 8 – Deadline for absentee ballot request to be received

Saturday, March 12 – Early voting period ends at 1 PM for March Primary

Tuesday, March 15 – 2016 Statewide March Primary Election Day. Polls are open 6:30 AM to 7:30 PM; deadline for receipt of absentee ballot (or if clearly postmarked that day, then receipt by March 18 is allowed.)

Tuesday, March 22 – Final vote count, includes all valid provisional and absentee ballots

You can download an absentee ballot and other forms, check your registration, learn what you'll need to vote, review your ballot, and get answers to pressing questions by visiting Democracy NC’s special voter website,

You can also call a toll-free hotline for answers in real time: 888-OUR-VOTE (888-687-8683).

Because many voting rules are being considered by the courts, register to vote now, vote early or at your own precinct on Election Day, and bring your ID if you have one – but if you don't, you can still vote (so far!).

Don't forget to pass along this important information--make your vote count in 2016!
