voting at the ballot box

Early voting in primaries for the 2018 mid-term elections begins Thursday, April 19, with a one-stop early voting site in the Brodhead Center on Duke’s West Campus.

The Brodhead Center is one of Durham’s six early voting sites for the May 8 primary.  The schedule for the early voting sites, as well as a map, can be found here

The primary ballot is short, but includes contested elections for district attorney and sheriff. Other races on the ballot, depending on your address, include seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and on the Durham County Board of Education.

Durham County residents will be able to register and vote on the same day at the Brodhead Center. To register and vote on the same day, potential voters must bring one of the following to show proof of residency:

  • a North Carolina driver license, 
  • a photo ID from a government agency, or
  • 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.

For those who have not yet registered to vote, the early voting period offers the last chance to cast a ballot in the May primary.  Same-day registration will not be allowed on May 8. Instead,   same-day registration and voting will be valid only at one of the one-stop sites and only during the early voting period.

If you have already registered to vote, no photo ID will be needed to vote at an early voting site. To determine if you are registered, use this online form here.

Early voting will continue at the Brodhead Center through Saturday, May 5. More information can be found on the Durham County Board of Elections website.
