2017 Raleigh Runoff Election Races



Go Vote!

Now that you've met the candidates, get ready to go to the polls.

There are three ways to vote in Raleigh this year:

1. On Election Day – Nov. 7

Polls will be open Tuesday, Nov. 7 from 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.

(If you are in line by 7:30 p.m., you WILL be able to vote.)

If you vote on Election Day, you should go to your assigned polling place.

Find your polling place here.

2. During the early voting period from Oct. 19 – Nov. 4

During the early voting period from Oct. 19–Nov. 4, you can cast a ballot at any early voting site in Wake County. (See a list of early voting locations.)

Plus, if you miss the Oct. 13 voter registration deadline, you can still register to vote and cast a ballot during the early voting period, using what's called same-day registration.

With same-day registration, you can fill out a registration form, show an identifying document, and vote at an early voting site when it is open (not on Election Day).

The identifying document must be one of these: a NC driver’s license; photo ID from a government agency; student photo ID with a school document showing the student’s address; or a utility bill, bank statement, payroll stub, or document from any government agency with the person’s name and current address.

3. Voting absentee by mail

You can vote by mail by requesting an absentee ballot from the Wake County Board of Elections office through Oct. 31. No excuse is needed.

Simply complete an absentee ballot request form and return it to the Wake County Board of Elections office.
