Home News Voter registration deadline for primary election is this Friday

To vote in the upcoming partisan primary election scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, 2024, prospective voters will need to have registered to vote by this Friday, February 9, 2024. Voters will also need to bring a photo I.D. in order to vote in the election.

The civilian voter registration deadline in North Carolina is 25 days before the election, according to the North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE).

The registration deadline to register to vote in the general election scheduled for Tuesday, November 5, 2024, will be October 11, 2024.


People can register to vote at the Hoke County Board of Elections, located at 227 North Main Street.

For people registering by mail to vote, the county board of elections must receive the completed application, postmarked by the registration deadline, no later than 20 days before a primary or general election; otherwise, the application will not be processed until after the election, according to the NCSBE website.

Voters will be asked to show photo I.D. when they vote in the election. Voters who don’t have a valid I.D. can get help with obtaining one from the county board of elections.

More information about the photo I.D. requirement can be found online at the North Carolina State Board of Elections website at https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/voter-id. For more information on voter registration or the photo I.D. requirement, call the Hoke County Board of Elections at (910) 875-9062 or email elections@hokecounty.org.

There are many local, state and federal races on the ballot in 2024 in the primary and general elections, including two seats on the Hoke County Board of Commissioners and two seats on the Hoke County Board of Education.

The filing period for two seats on the Hoke County Board of Education, and one seat on the Soil and Water Conservation Board will open this coming summer. Those boards are nonpartisan and will not have a primary election.

Only incumbents filed to run for the offices of District Attorney and Register of Deeds, so those incumbents are running unopposed.
