Early voting has begun for the Nov. 2 municipal elections across North Carolina, including Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill.

In Durham, early voting will continue through Saturday at five locations across the city: North Regional Library, East Regional Library, South Regional Library, the Main County Library and the Turner Law Building at N.C. Central University.

For more information about Durham early voting, see the Durham Board of Elections website.

For Wake County early voting information, click on the Board of Elections website; Orange County -- which has elections in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Hillsborough and Mebane -- information is here.

During early voting, voters can do same-day registration, meaning they can register and vote on the same day.  On Election Day, Nov. 2, you must already be registered in order to cast a ballot.

In Durham, the municipal elections include races for mayor and city council. Two candidates are on the ballot for mayor: Elaine O’Neal and Javiera Caballero, although Caballero has announced her withdrawal from the race and is not campaigning.

On the day of the general election, voters will need to go to their regular polling site to vote. Students living on East Campus will vote at Watts Elementary School, 700 Watts St., while West Campus residents can vote at Patterson Recreation Center, 2614 Crest St.

For the rest of us in Durham, you can find your Nov. 2 polling site on the Board of Elections website. All polling sites will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Voters in other counties can get that information on the state voter lookup tool.

Duke University is committed to ensuring every member of the community who is eligible to vote has the opportunity to do so. More information can be found online on the university voting policy.
