Q. Where do I go to vote?
A. Washington County has six precincts in the county and you must vote in your correct precinct. Upon registration, a voter will be sent a voter registration card for information purposes which includes his or her voting precinct. (See Voting Places above)
Q. What is the registration deadline to be eligible to vote?
A. In order to vote in an election, the Application to Register to Vote form must be postmarked or delivered to the Board of Elections office no later than the 25th day before that election. In addition, the applicant must be a resident of North Carolina and the county for 30 days before the election.
Q. If I register to vote will my name then be on the list for jury duty?
A. Jury duty lists are drawn from both voter registration lists and from the Division of Motor Vehicles so it would be unfortunate for you pass up your opportunity to vote simply to avoid jury duty.
