Early voting begins in Wake County’s 2021 local elections

·1 min read

Early voting has begun for Wake County’s 2021 municipal elections.

Ten of Wake County’s towns and cities will elect new local leaders, including new mayors in Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and Zebulon.

One early voting location, the Wake County Board of Elections Office, opened Thursday while two more locations will open next week. There are only two satellite locations because only Apex and Garner requested early voting sites. Cities cover the cost of their elections and early voting locations.

People can vote at any early voting location regardless of where they live in Wake County, and people can register to vote or change their voting address at early voting locations. Registrations can’t be updated on Election Day.

Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 2.

Normally, Raleigh and Cary would also odd their elections in fall 2021 but both were pushed back to 2022 due to delays in the release of US Census redistricting data.
