Voting for the first time in your county

If you are voting for the first time in Orange County, you will be asked to list an ID number that was written on your voter registration form (driver’s license number or the last four digits of your Social Security number).

Alternatively, you can show a document that has your name and current address listed on it. This can be a utility bill, pay stub, bank statement, or a document from a government agency, such as a North Carolina DMV license or identification card.

Vote as early as you can

If there is a line to vote at closing time at any polling place, that polling place must remain open until all those in line have cast their ballots. (As a note, during the Early Voting period from Oct 15 – Oct 31, you can update your registration AND vote in one-stop).

Find your polling place

A number of Orange County Election Day polling places have changed to allow for a better voter experience and for social distancing. You can check your polling place here:
