One Stop Voting Begins April 24th

NEW HANOVER CTY - One stop absentee voting begins Thursday April 24th at certain locations throughout New Hanover County.
According to the New Hanover County Board of Elections, if you choose to vote by the One-Stop absentee method, you simply appear in person at one of the One-Stop voting locations. One-Stop begins on the second Thursday before an election and ends on the Saturday before the election at 1:00 PM. One-Stop voting allows voters an opportunity to vote when it best suits individual schedules.
At the voting location, you will vote much like you would on Election Day. The difference is you will be required to complete and sign an absentee request application prior to voting. Afterwards, you will be directed to the voting machine to cast your ballot.
Once you have submitted your application and executed the process of voting, the county board of elections will review your application and either approve or deny the submission.
Due to legislative changes under the Voter Information and Verification Act (VIVA), individuals will no longer have the opportunity to register in person at a One-Stop voting site. All voters seeking to register will need to do so prior to the voter registration deadline.
If a voter who is voting for the first time presents to vote at a One-Stop voting site and has not provided either a driver’s license number or the last 4 digits of a social security number to the county board of elections upon initial registration, that voter will be required to provide one of the following:
• A current and valid photo identification or
• A copy of a current utility
bill, bank statement, government check, or other government document showing both name and address
If you elect to provide one of the documents listed above, it will need to be current or at least dated within 6
 months of the date it is presented to an election official.
