Early Voting Begins in Cabarrus County, Cast Ballot Today

Mar 03, 2016 11:27AM ● Published by Steph Rodriguez

One-Stop Voting, known as early voting, begins 10 days before an election. An early primary election, set for March 15, means that select polling locations opened this morning, March 3. So, cast your vote early to avoid long lines on Primary Election Day.

All registered North Carolina voters may cast their ballot in person at the Cabarrus County Board of Elections Office (369 Church St. N., Concord) March 3 - 11, 8:30 a.m.– 5 p.m., or Saturday, March 12, 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

 Satellite precincts at Concord Fire Station #7 (250 International Drive, Concord) and Harrisburg Branch of the Cabarrus County Public Library System (201 Sims Parkway, Harrisburg) will open for One-Stop Voting, March 7 – 11, Noon – 7 p.m., and Saturday, March 12, 8:30 a.m. – Noon.

Registered voters eligible for absentee voting must request their ballot by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8. The last day to return an absentee ballot is Tuesday, March 15. To view eligibility requirements or request an absentee ballot, visit

Beginning with this primary election, NC voters must provide an acceptable form of photo ID to cast a vote. For examples of acceptable forms, exceptions and general requirements visit,

Based on current North Carolina court rulings, Cabarrus County’s 8th Congressional District now includes three precincts previously served through the 12th Congressional District. Because there was not time to revise ballots, voters will see the NC Congressional District race on the ballot; however, those votes will remain undisclosed by State order. Following the March 15 primary, the State will hold a separate filing period for NC Congressional Districts with a congressional district-only primary on June 7. The Cabarrus County Board of Elections will provide additional information about the NC Congressional primary as filing opens.

On Primary Election Day, Tuesday, March 15, polling locations are open 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. To find your polling location, visit
