Early voting or one-stop voting allows registered voters to vote at any voting site in the county.
Each site will have all the ballot styles for a given election at each site. 

In the contest for the Democratic nomination for the North Carolina Senate District 1 seat, Richard S. “Steve” James filed against D. Cole Phelps of Creswell. 

A challenge about residency was lodged against James. 

A committee appointed the state Board of Elections held a hearing on April 12 in Currituck County. The committee heard testimony. James did not show up for the hearing. 

The committee ruled James was not a viable candidate for the senate seat. 

Dare County election officials are awaiting final determination from the North Carolina Board of Elections as to whether there will be a Democratic primary.
