Early voting for the 2023 fall municipal elections in Dare County begins on Thursday, Oct. 19. In the six Dare County municipalities, there are local races for the seats on boards of commissioners or town councils and in some cases, for mayor.

Early voting allows any registered voter to cast an absentee ballot in person on select days prior to Election Day, which is Nov. 7. Unlike on Election Day, when registered voters can only vote at their assigned precinct, early voting allows registered voters to vote at either early voting site in the county. Each site will have all of the ballot styles for a given election.

There will be two early voting sites in the county. One is at the Dare County Administrative Offices at 95 Marshall C. Collins Drive in Manteo, and the other is at Kill Devil Hills Town Hall, 102 Town Hall Drive in Kill Devil Hills.

Early voting hours will run from Oct. 19 through Nov. 3 between 8:30 and 5 p.m. in Manteo and between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in Kill Devil Hills. Both sites will also be open for voting on Saturday, Nov. 4 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.

During early voting, voters may update their name and address on an existing registration record, but they are not allowed to change their party affiliation. There is also same day voter registration if you are 18 years old by Election Day and have lived in Dare County for 30 days prior to the election.

Individuals will need proof of identity and residency, and an identification document is required when using same day voter registration during the early voting period. The acceptable documents that may be used include: a North Carolina driver license, a photo ID from a government agency, a copy of one of the following that shows the name and address of the voter: a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document.

During this election, all voters must show an acceptable photo ID when they check in at their voting site during early voting or on Election Day. Election workers check to see if the picture on the ID reasonably resembles the voter and if the name on the ID is the same as or very similar to the voter’s name in their registration record. The address on the photo ID does not have to match the voter registration records.

If the voter does not show an acceptable ID, the voter may proceed to vote by completing an ID Exception Form and then voting with a provisional ballot or voting with a provisional ballot and then returning to their county board of elections office with their photo ID by the day before county canvass.
