One-Stop Early Voting in Manteo

One-stop absentee voting (commonly known as "early voting") allows any registered voter to cast an absentee ballot in person on select days prior to Election Day. Unlike on Election Day, when registered voters can only vote at their specific precinct, one-stop voting allows registered voters to vote at any one-stop absentee voting site in the county. One-stop sites will have all the ballot styles for a given election at each site. 

When you present to vote at a one-stop site, you may change your name or address, if it needs to be updated.

One-stop early voting is also being held today from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Kill Devil Hills Town Hall located at 102 Town Hall Drive, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948.
