Voters will still have an opportunity to vote on Election Day, March 5, in their home precinct if they miss the Early Voting period. Election Day polling places will be open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.

The deadline to return a civilian absentee ballot is 7:30 p.m. on Election Day. Absentee ballots must be delivered to the Wake County Board of Elections office at 1200 N. New Hope Road in Raleigh or received by mail prior to the deadline.

In a partisan primary, voters affiliated with a political party may only vote their party’s ballot and may not vote in another party’s primary. This remains true even if the party you are affiliated with does not have a primary in 2024, such as the No Labels Party and the Green Party. Unaffiliated voters will be able to choose either a Democratic, Republican or Libertarian primary ballot. Voters can view the candidate lists and see sample ballots at

All voters will be asked to show an acceptable ID prior to receiving their Primary ballot. A full list of acceptable IDs can be found at Voter ID | NCSBE.
