Wayne County residents who want to be able to express their opinion on Election Day have until 5 p.m. Friday to register to vote.
Ballots will be cast Nov. 7 to determine races for local, state and federal seats.
Residents can mail their voter registration forms to the Wayne County Board of Elections office at 209 S. William St., or deliver it in person to the office, county Elections Director Gary Sims said.
If mailed, the registration form must be postmarked by Friday.
If any registered voter has moved since the last time he or she voted, or is unsure of his or her current registration, Sims said he or she should update his or her registration because it makes for a smoother process on Election Day.
As of Oct. 11, there were 63,718 registered voters in Wayne County, according to the most recent count by the Wayne elections office.
There were 32,384 registered Democrats in the county, 21,447 registered Republicans and 9,887 people registered as unaffiliated.
Voters can begin casting their ballots as early as next Thursday. One-stop voting begins at 8 a.m. Oct. 19 at the Wayne County Library at 1001 E. Ash St.
Registered voters can cast their ballots any weekday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. until the week before the Nov. 7 election. The last day for one-stop early voting is Nov. 4, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Any qualified voters may also vote by absentee ballot. Residents can request an absentee ballot in person or in writing to the Wayne County Board of Elections office at 209 S. William St., Goldsboro, N.C., 27530.
