The deadline to register to vote in the midterm election is Friday, October 14. Here are other important dates and information to keep in mind before voting.

To register to vote you have to be a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years old, and show proof of residence (a utility bill, bank statement, or other government documents).

You will need a North Carolina driver’s license, a state ID, or in case you don’t have those documents, you can also provide the last four digits of your social security number. 

Charlie Collicutt, Director of Guilford County Board of Elections, says other options are available if you don’t register by October 14. 

"If you miss that deadline, we can do a same-day registration and early voting, but it just becomes a little bit more of a difficult process," says Collicutt. "So that's the main deadline. Another deadline, if a voter wants to get a by-mail ballot, they have to make that request no later than a week prior to the election."

Same-day registration during one-stop early voting begins October 20 and goes through November 5.
