Early Voting Begins Locally October 21st
This year registered voters in Davidson will vote to choose the mayor and town board members. Early voting began on October 21 and continues through October 30, at the Davidson Library, a branch of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, located at 119 South Main Street on The Green. On Election Day, November 2, voters must vote in their assigned precinct. For those in Precinct 127, voting will be at Hopewell Baptist Church, and for those in Precinct 206, voting will be at Davidson Town Hall.
Weekday voting hours will be from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Voting hours for Saturday, October 30 is 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. The library will still be open its regular hours, and library staff will still be available to help patrons.
Marie Harris, the branch manager for the Davidson Library, expects voters will enter the doors to the right of the main entrance, but the Board of Elections has not yet made that decision. Voters should look for directional signage that will be placed near the building. Although voter parking is unlikely to be reserved, expectation is that there will be one parking spot reserved for voters who need to vote from their cars.
As a reminder, voters do not need to show i.d. to vote, but they do need to wear a mask and maintain social distance at voting sites.
