Voting Information and Resources
IMPORTANT: Events covering voting issues are promoted on this online calendar. If you are interested in voter registration, education, turnout, and advocacy, you can check this calendar for events, trainings and activities covering these issues and more.
- You do NOT need a photo ID to vote in elections.
- Early Voting returns to 17 days
- Same day registration is back for Early Voting. That means you can register to vote and vote during Early Voting.
- Out-of-precinct voting requires the Board of Elections in each county to count the provisional ballot of an Election Day voter who appears at the wrong precinct, but in the correct county. However, your votes will only count for those candidates or issues that are on your ballot.
- Pre-registration is permitted for 16- and 17-year-olds, when obtaining driver’s licenses or attending high school registration drives, to identify themselves and indicate their intent to vote when they turn 18.
- Enter your full first and last name and check the "I am not a robot" box. For common names, you can also select your county to filter responses. Select the link with your name and you will get your Voter Information page.
- If you are registered at your current address under your current name, that is great! On the same Voter Information page that lists your registration, you will see a link for your general election and primary ballot near the bottom of the page under Sample Ballots. Primary Ballots are now available. Your polling station and other relevant information are listed here as well.
If I have questions about voting, what is the best resource to get my questions answered? The Buncombe County Board of Elections is a valuable resource. You can call them at 828-250-4200 or visit their office at 77 McDowell Street in Asheville.
