Curbside voting under way at all Early Voting locations

Ready to help curbside voters: John Hurst, Alex Moyers and Alyssa Wood at Cornelius Town Hall

Oct. 25. By Dave Yochum. Early voting continues across North Carolina, including 33 polling places in Mecklenburg County. At 8 am today there was a line of about a half dozen people waiting outside for the doors to open. But inside there were more than a dozen voting machines, which meant no waiting.

The first and last days of early voting are typically the busiest. Cornelius Town Hall remains the top draw when it comes to all 33 Early Voting places, with 10,049 voters casting their ballots through Sunday. Bojangles Entertainment Complex had 8,176 voters; Bank of America Stadium had 8,169.

Early voting runs through this Saturday, Oct. 31. Polls are open from 8 am to 7:30 pm through Friday.

Curbside voting

Curbside voting is available for those who are unable to enter the voting place without physical assistance due to age or disability.

You can cast your ballot from your vehicle outside the polling location. Curbside voters must sign an affidavit affirming that they’re unable to enter the voting place to cast their ballot.

You can also drop off your completed ballot at an early voting site, but you must complete a form.

Ballots will be delivered to the county board of elections for processing.

Saturday: Last day of Early Voting

On Saturday, the final day of Early Voting, polls are open from 8 am to 3 pm.

Election Day hours

On Election Day Nov. 3, all voting locations will be open 6:30 am until 7:30pm.
