Can people who will be 18 by Election Day register and vote in the primaries as well as the general election?

Yes, those aged 17 who will be 18 by the General Election may register and vote; however, they are not allowed to vote on any non-primary races (such as Orange County School Board) or referendum if they haven’t turned 18 by the Primary. (G.S. 163-59).
