ASHEBORO — Two new polling sites in Asheboro will be open for November’s election.
The Municipal General Election for Asheboro, Franklinville, Liberty, Ramseur, Randleman, Seagrove and Staley as well as the Asheboro Board of Education will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Registered voters who live within the boundaries of these municipalities and the Asheboro City Schools district — as well as Randolph County citizens eligible to vote in Thomasville and High Point elections — may vote in the municipal election. Municipal contests may include the mayor and members of the municipality’s govern-ing board.
These are often referred to as “off-year elections” because they do not include regu-lar state and federal elections.
The two new polling places will be:
- ASHEBORO SOUTH — National Guard Armory, 1430 S. Fayetteville Street
- ASHEBORO WEST — Asheboro Recreation Center, 135 N. Fayetteville Street
In a change enacted since the previous election, voters will be asked to show photo ID when they vote. All voters will be allowed to vote with or without ID. Voters who lack ID can get one for free from their county board of elections. Find out more at ncsbe.gov/voter-id.
Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Election Day.
One-stop early voting will be held at the Randolph County Board of Elections, 1457 N. Fayetteville Street in Asheboro, from Thursday, Oct. 19, to Saturday, Nov. 4, on the following days and times:
- Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Tuesdays, Thursdays, 8 a.m.-7 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 4, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
Absentee ballots will be mailed to voters who have requested them beginning Oct. 6, 2023. A voter can fill out an absentee ballot request at votebymail.ncsbe.gov, or by filling out a request form provided by the Board of Elections.
The request must be received through the website or by the Randolph County Board of Elections by 5 p.m. on Oct. 31, 2023.
