Are You Ready to Vote?

Two steps to voting:

First: Get Registered

Not sure if you are registered? Check here!

Need to register? You can do so online through the Department of Motor Vehicles. Click here.

Or you can print a Voter Registration Form in English or Spanish. Return your form in person or by mail to 115 S. Maple St., Graham, NC 27253. Be sure to mail it early so it will be received before the September 15 deadline (for the primary) or October 13 (for the municipal election)!

Second: Plan how you will vote:

Vote by Mail

  1. You can request an absentee ballot be mailed to your address. Make the request online here, or fill out and print the form here. You can track your absentee ballot from the time it is printed until it is counted here.
  2. For detailed instructions on voting by mail, including who can request absentee ballots for a family member, please see the North Carolina Board of Elections website here.
