Please Note: Special elections, not listed below, may be called by the State Legislature, Dare County or a Municipality.
BUFFER ZONES - No person or group of persons shall hinder access, harass others, distribute campaign literature, place political advertising, solicit votes, or otherwise engage in election-related activity in the voting place or in a buffer zone which shall be prescribed by the county board of elections around the voting place. In determining the dimensions of that buffer zone for each voting place, the county board of elections shall, where practical, set the limit at 50 feet from the door of entrance to the voting place, measured when that door is closed, but in no event shall it set the limit at more than 50 feet or at less than 25 feet. N.C.G.S. 163A-1134(a)
ABSENTEE/MAIL-IN VOTING - Will you be out of town? Submit the North Carolina Absentee Ballot Request Form to the Dare County Board of Elections Office no later than 5 p.m. on the Tuesday before the date of the election. This form may be mailed, faxed, emailed, or delivered in person. The status of your absentee request may also be checked on the North Carolina Board of Elections website.
CURBSIDE VOTING is offered at all Dare County polling places. To be eligible for curbside voting, you must be unable to enter the polling place due to age or physical disability. Look for the call bells near the polling place entrance labeled "Curbside Voting." Poll workers will walk to your car when you park in one of the designated spaces to attend to your voting needs.
