N.C. Moves 2016 Primary Elections to March
A new law passed by the North Carolina General Assembly and signed by Gov. Pat McCrory on Sept. 30, 2015, provides that North Carolina will hold the 2016 Presidential Primary Election, along with all general primary elections, on March 15, 2016. North Carolina previously held all primary elections in May.
Residents of Currituck County must be registered on or before February 19 in order to be eligible to vote on Election Day. Those voters who are not registered by February 19 may register and vote during One Stop early voting only, and will be required to provide documentation of their identity and residence. This process is called "Same-Day Registration" and is currently permitted due to a preliminary injunction granted under a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit; this option is the subject of ongoing litigation in federal court.
