Official Election Notice
County of Clay
2018 GENERAL
Election Date: 11/06/2018
This is an official notice of an election to be conducted in Clay County on 11/06/2018. This notice contains a list of all of the ballot measures
and federal, State, and local offices this county expects, as of this date, to be on the ballot on the date of the election. (See Attachment)
An Election Notice will be prepared not later than 100 days before a regularly scheduled election that permits absentee voting, and as soon as
practicable in the case of an election or vacancy election not regularly scheduled. For a second primary, an Election Notice will be prepared, no
later than the day following the date the appropriate board of elections orders that a second primary be held.
As soon as ballot styles are printed, this county board of elections will update this notice with the certified candidates for each office and
ballot measures and referenda questions that will be on the ballot. For General Elections during even-numbered years, ballots will be printed 60 days
prior to the election. For statewide primaries and other elections (except municipal elections), ballots will be printed 50 days prior to the election.
Municipal ballots are available 30 days prior to Election Day. You must request an updated Election Notice.
Transmitting a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot:
This notice may be used in conjunction with the federal write-in absentee ballot (FWAB). Covered military & overseas voters seeking to vote by
absentee ballot may use the FWAB to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and vote an official military-overseas ballot. When using the FWAB
to register to vote, and/or request an absentee ballot, please transmit your signed and completed FWAB no later than 5:00 p.m. on the day before
Election Day. If submitted later than this day and time, your absentee ballot will not be counted. Federal write-in absentee ballots are available at
www.NCSBE.gov. You may also request a regular absentee ballot by using the federal postcard application (FPCA), available at www.FVAP.gov. A regular
ballot can be mailed, faxed or emailed to you. You may return the FWAB or a regular absentee ballot by mail, secure fax (919) 715-0351 or email
(absentee@ncsbe.gov).
Marking a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot:
When marking a FWAB, for each office for which you wish to vote, write in either a candidate's name or political party designation. For ballot measures
or referenda, write either “YES” (you are for the ballot measure or referendum) or “NO” (you are against the ballot measure or referendum). In a
primary, if you are registered as Democrat, Republican or Libertarian, for partisan contests, you may only vote for the candidates of the party for
which you are affiliated. You are also eligible to vote for non-partisan contests. If you are registered as unaffiliated (“independent”), in a primary,
you may choose to vote for the partisan contests of one of the parties or you may choose to vote for non-partisan contests only. Please contact your
local board of elections to confirm your party affiliation or voter registration status.
Please check the website for the NC State Board of Elections (www.NCSBE.gov) for additional information on military-overseas absentee voting.
