As long as you turn eighteen by November 8th of this year, you can vote right now!

May 17th is the day for both the Primary and Town of Cary Municipal Elections, and you can vote as long as you are eighteen by or before November 8th.

The purpose of primary elections are to narrow down candidates for each party for the partisan election in November 8th, 2022. Furthermore, if you are 18 years of age or older, you will also be directly voting for Town of Cary positions. Voting in these elections will not only influence county and state politics, but also national discourse: especially in the light of state-centered events such as Roe v. Wade likely being overturned, banned books in schools, and more.

If you have not yet registered to vote, you can still do so and vote during early voting which has already begun and will go on until May 14th. Otherwise, you can either vote now through early voting, wait until election day on May 17th, or submit an absentee ballot if you have conflicts with voting in person.
