The no excuse one-stop absentee voting process allows registered voters to appear at the one-stop voting site and cast their ballots. They do not need a reason to vote this way. At one-stop voting only, a registered voter can vote regardless of their normal polling place.
When One-Stop Early Voting Starts
One-stop voting starts the 3rd Wednesday before an election and ends on the Saturday before the election. Unless otherwise posted, the One-Stop Voting Site is located at:
County Annex, Conference Room
231 E Cronly Street
Laurinburg, NC 28352
Normal hours for one-stop voting are:
7 a.m. till 7 p.m.
The Saturday before the election
8 a.m. till 1 p.m.
Any change in the times for one-stop voting will be posted.
At the Voting Place
Upon entering the voting place, you will give your name, address and party, primary only, to the elections officials. If you are properly registered, you will be given an ATV Form to sign, then you will be allowed to vote a regular ballot.
If the precinct officials can not find your registration information, you may be asked to vote a provisional ballot, at which point you will be turned over to the Provisional Voter Coordinator. You will be instructed on how to fill out the provisional envelope and given a ballot. After you have completed your ballot, seal it in the envelope and return it to the Coordinator. You will be given an instruction sheet with a pin number on how to check to see if your ballot was counted. To avoid voting a provisional ballot, keep your voter registration updated.
