Election Day Address Changes: If you are a registered voter in Catawba County and have moved within the county but failed to update your address with the BOE, you may do so at the polls. State Law requires that you go to the polling site for the address you were living 30 days before the election.

  • If you moved less than 30 days before the election, go to the polling location for your old address. Since you moved less than 30-days before the election, you cannot make changes at the polls; after voting, you should send in a new voter registration form with your new address to the BOE office before the next election.
  • If you moved more than 30 days before the election, go to the polling location for your new address. Enter your new address to find the polling location. You may change your address and vote at this location.

Note: if you are registered in another county but moved your residence out of that county, you MUST submit a new registration to your new county's Board of Elections before books close 25 days before the election (or registration may be conducted during One-Stop). By law, once you move your residence out of a county, you are no longer considered a registered voter in the state of North Carolina until you re-register with that new county. § 163A-842 (4)

Election Day Name Changes: If your legal name has changed, you may update your name at the polls.

Provisional Ballot: If your name cannot be found in the registration list or there are disputes with your jurisdiction, party affiliation, etc. you are entitled to vote a Provisional Ballot. By voting a Provisional Ballot, your eligibility will be researched by the Board of Elections to determine if your ballot will be counted or partially counted. If counted, the votes will be added to the official vote count at canvass.ADA ballot marking equipment is available for voters who are blind, visually impaired, or have a disability or condition that makes it difficult to traditionally mark a ballot.

Curbside Voting is available to anyone that cannot come inside because of age or physical disability. Curbside Voter parking spaces are available at all polling locations. Pull into one of the spots and a curbside official will come out to assist you with the curbside voting process.

For more information see NCGS § 163A-842 - Residence defined for registration and voting

Call the BOE Office at 828-464-2424 and we will gladly tell you which precinct location you should go to vote on election day and answer any questions.
You may also vote and make changes at any one-stop early voting location.

Most likely not, but…
New voters are asked to provide an ID number on their registration form (either a NC driver’s license number or the last 4 digits of their Social Security number). If these are not provided or cannot be verified, the voter will be asked to show a photo ID (NCDL, Permit, DMV ID, or US Passport) showing their name and photo, or other document showing their name and residential address:

  • Current utility bill (electric, phone, water, cable)
  • Bank statement
  • Government Check
  • Paycheck
  • or Other Government Document.

Several voting options are available for voters in North Carolina:

  • By Mail: Anyone may request an Absentee By Mail ballot
  • Early Voting: Pull into a Curbside parking space. A One-Stop Worker will come out to your vehicle to check you in and then bring you a ballot if you are eligible*. Locations
  • Election Day: Pull into a Curbside parking space. A Poll Worker will come out to your vehicle to check you in and then bring you a ballot if you are eligible*.

*Note: Curbside Voting is only available to those taking an oath and swearing (or affirming) that “because of age or physical disability” they cannot enter the polling facility. Anyone accompanying the elderly or disabled curbside voter who wishes to vote is required to vote inside (unless they, too, meet the curbside oath criteria).

Voters with a disability or difficulty reading (due to language ability, vision, etc.) can ask for assistance from any person of their choice (except an agent of their employer or union). The assistant may not tell them who to vote for but should read (or translate) the ballot to them in its entirety.

If the election officials cannot find your name on record or if there is any other problem, you have the right to receive a “Provisional Ballot.” After completing paperwork, you vote a paper ballot and seal it inside an envelope. You will be given an instruction sheet with PIN number and a phone number or website to use (after the election) to check your Provisional Ballot status.

The Board of Elections office researches your registration history. If your eligibility to vote is verified, your ballot will be counted like a regular ballot and will be included in the official numbers on Canvass.
