NASHVILLE — Early voting in the May primary ends in two days.

Turnout for the primary elections has been a mixed bag in Nash County, higher than 2018 but a little less than expected, said John Kearney, the county’s elections director.

“We are at little over 5,200 now,” Kearney said Thursday afternoon. “I was hoping for around 8,000.”

There’s still time to vote early. One-stop voting will be open through Saturday at three locations in Nash County.

The polling places are set for Mount Pleasant Community Building, 7637 Harris Road in Bailey; Nash County Agriculture Center at 1006 Eastern Ave. in Nashville; and Braswell Memorial Library, 727 N. Grace St. in Rocky Mount. 

The polls will be open 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. today and Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Southern Nash County voters are able to vote in the Republican or Democratic primaries for candidates in the following races: U.S. Senate, U.S. House District 1; N.C. Court of Appeals; N.C. House District 25; and Nash County sheriff.

During early voting, eligible individuals can register and cast a ballot at any early voting site in the county.


The primary is set for Tuesday. Only registered voters will be able to cast their in-person vote on that day.

All polling places will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m: Any voter in line at their assigned polling place at 7:30 p.m. will be able to vote. The busiest times tend to be early in the morning and just before the polls close. Avoid longer lines by voting at off-peak times, according to information from the N.C. State Board of Elections.
