More Charlotte early voting sites open Tuesday for Sept. 15 primary

Eight more early-voting sites will open Tuesday at library sites across Charlotte ahead of next week’s primary.

Voting has been underway since Thursday in Central Piedmont Community College’s Facilities Services building on East Seventh Street. That site will be open again this week, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Meanwhile, voting also will be starting Tuesday at these library branches:

▪ Beatties Ford, 2412 Beatties Ford Road.

▪  Independence Regional, 6000 Conference Drive.

▪  Main Branch, 310 N. Tryon St.

▪ Morrison Regional, 7015 Morrison Blvd.

The library voting sites will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Tuesday also is the deadline to request an mail-in absentee ballot for the Sept. 15 primary. Forms are available on the state and Mecklenburg elections website, and are due by 5 p.m. For more details, visit www.meckboe.org.

The Sept. 15 primary will select Republican and Democratic nominees for Charlotte mayor, while Democrats also will choose among candidates for at-large and district seats on the city council.

Voters registered as Democrats or Republicans must vote in their party’s primary. But unaffiliated voters can select either primary. Same-day registration will be allowed at early-voting sites, but a voter ID is not required this year.

If necessary, a run-off election will occur Oct. 6. The general election, which will also include Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board and town races, is Nov. 3.
