Tips from the Rowan County Board of Elections Web site:
– Your voter card will indicate the name and location of your voting place. You may also telephone the Elections Office for the location of your voting place 704-216-8140. The Board of Elections is at 130 W. Innes St. in the County Administrative Offices.
– If you have moved within Rowan County and you failed to change your address by the registration deadline, there is a procedure that allows you to vote.
To vote without delay in any local, state, national primary or general election, a voter must file a change of address at least 25 days prior to Election Day. If a voter moves within Rowan County and fails to file a change of address by the deadline, the voter may vote by going to the old precinct and obtain an “Election Day Transfer Form.” The voter will take this form to the new precinct or to the Rowan County Board of Elections office. The form will allow the voter to vote in his/her new precinct.
The voter may also go to the voter’s new precinct without obtaining an “Election Day Transfer Form” and vote by provisional ballot. Provisional ballots are not counted on Election Day. The Board of Elections determines the eligibility of provisional ballots at the canvass, which is at 11 a.m. on the Friday after the election. All qualified provisional ballots are counted at that time by the Board of Elections members and added to the official results of the election.
