Saturday is the last day for early voting; election day is Tuesday | Govt. and politics


Catawba County polling officers work at the edge polling station of the Catawba County Library in Newton during early voting. Saturday is the last day for early voting in Catawba County.


Saturday will be the last chance for residents of six Catawba County municipalities and two school districts to vote early.

Polling stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Catawba County Library in Newton, the only early voting site for all local elections this year.

Conover, Newton, Maiden, Claremont, the town of Catawba and Brookford all have elections this year.

Three seats on the Newton-Conover School Board are available – two seats in the Newton District and one in the Conover District.

In Hickory Public Schools, seats in Ward 1, 2, 3, and 5 are all up for election.

Municipal elections are general, so residents can vote for all races in their city, regardless of where they live in the municipality.

For school races, voters must live in a neighborhood or district that has an election in order to vote in that race.

Voters can verify their eligibility by visiting, by clicking on the “Elections” link under the “County Services” tab and by following the “Verify your registration” link.

Voters who have not yet registered can register and then vote during the early poll by providing proof confirming their place of residence.
