Mecklenburg County has the potential to host three (3) elections each year: a Primary Election, a Second Primary Election, and a General Election. Elections are always held on a Tuesday and the polls are open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. All Precinct Officials must be at the polls before they open and remain until after the polls have closed and all work is complete. The day before the election Precinct Officials set up the precinct and review procedures for Election Day.
