HOW TO REGISTER AND VOTE AT A ONE-STOP ABSENTEE SITE
This process will not be available on Election Day November 6, 2012.
North Carolina resident who is qualified to vote but who misses the 25-day deadline (Friday, October 12, 2012) for voter registration may register and vote at a One-Stop Site during the One-Stop Absentee Voting period.
The process is sometimes referred to as "In-Person Registration and Voting," but it is important to recognize that it is not permitted on Election Day.
To use this process, a citizen must (1) go to a One-Stop Voting Site in the county of residence during the One Stop Absentee Voting period, (2) fill out a voter registration application, and (3) provide proof of residency by showing the elections official an appropriate form of identification with the citizen's current name and current address. The new registrant may vote ONLY at a One-Stop Absentee Voting Site in the county of registration during One-Stop Absentee Voting period and not on Election Day.
Acceptable forms of identification include:
If you cannot supply an acceptable form of identification for Proof-of-Residence, your registration application cannot be fully processed until the required information is provided. Registered voters may also update their address and change vital information in an existing registration record at the One Stop Site, but they are not allowed to change their party affiliation during the One Stop Voting period that precedes a partisan primary.
