Tuesday May 8th will be the primary election in North Carolina. Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. To see where your polling place is, check with your county board of elections. There is no same-day voter registration on primary day, so only those already registered can vote. Those registered with a party can only vote in the primary for that party. Unaffiliated voters can select which primary they wish to vote in.
