New Rules and Regulations
This year, unless you participate in early voting or absentee voting, you will only be allowed to cast a ballot in the precinct which you are registered. This is why it is particularly important to make sure your registration is correct, as noted above. You will not need a photo ID until 2016. If you have questions or concerns about these new regulations, please contact us and we will help sort them out.
The General Election
The 2014 General Election will take place on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. No matter which county you are in, you can get a sample ballot showing all the offices and candidates in your districts by visiting the North Carolina Board of Elections website and searching for your voter registration file. Once located, you can find the address of your polling place as well as a link to the sample ballot. In the western Triangle, there is only one Libertarian on the ballot, Sean Haugh for US Senate. However, as the election approaches we will be posting access to a general voter guide.
You may be disappointed by the number of uncontested races for NC House and NC Senate - so are we! If you are inspired to run, please let us know by filling out this short survey. The survey in no way commits you to running, but allows us to start a conversation together about the best way to move forward.
