In order to vote today, you'll need to go to your assigned polling place and can vote until 7:30 p.m.-- if you're in line at 7:30 p.m., no matter how long the line may be, you can cast your ballot.

Learn more from the NC State Board of Elections about what to expect when voting on Election Day, including links to download a sample ballot.

As a voter, you have rights! Here's a concise list from Democracy NC about your Voter's Bill of Rights. (Also available in Spanish.) Remember that voter intimidation is against both state and federal law. Report any instances of voter intimidation to the election official at your polling place 

For a bit of background history on why elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, see this article from NPR's Morning Edition.
