Early Voting

The Randolph County Board of Elections conducts early voting (in-person absentee voting) prior to each election. Early voting is held the second Thursday before each election through the Saturday prior to Election Day. Times and locations will be posted before each election.


Who may vote at an early voting location?

Any eligible Randolph County voter may vote at any Randolph County early voting site. All ballot styles are available at every early voting site, so you will receive the same ballot you would receive if you went to your assigned polling place on Election Day.


May I update my name or address at an early voting location? 


Yes. You may update your name and address before voting. If you moved 30 or more days before Election Day, you will receive the ballot style of your new address. If you moved fewer than 30 days before Election Day, you will receive the ballot style of your old address. Update your name or address now by completing a voter registration application.

Can I register and vote at the same time at an early voting location?

Yes. Eligible individuals may register and vote during the one-stop early voting period. This "same-day registration" process is currently permitted due to a preliminary injunction granted under a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, but this option remains the subject of ongoing litigation in federal court. These individuals must bring a valid form of identification that shows name and correct address. Same Day Registration is not allowed on Election Day. Please check back for updates.
