Registration deadline for June 7 primary is today

SALISBURY — Today is the last day to register to vote for Rowan residents who wish to participate in the June 7 primary elections.

The elections involve candidates for Congress and N.C. Supreme Court. Ballots in Rowan County will either include the 8th or 13th district races. The 13th District may be the most unique in North Carolina. It involves 17 Republican candidates and five Democrats. In the 8th District, there’s only a GOP primary — incumbent Rep. Richard Hudson faces businessman Tim D’Annunzio.

Voters who wish to participate in primary elections on June 7 can make changes to registration or register by 5 p.m. today at the Rowan County Board of Elections — 130 West Innes Street in Salisbury.

During early voting, same-day registration is allowed. Today’s deadline only applies to those who plan to vote on June 7.

Voters who are registered as unafiliated can choose to vote in either a Republican Party or Democratic Party primary.

Early voting starts on May 26 and ends on June 4.

Mail-in abenstee voting is currently ongoing.
