    To vote in the primary, you simply tell them whether you prefer a Republican, Democrat, or Independent ballot (may be a few others too). You will be allowed to vote for any of the candidates on the ballot you selected, and they don’t check to make sure that you’re actually a R or D when you ask for that ballot. So if you want to vote in the Republican primary, you can. Just ask for a Republican ballot. In my state, you must bring photo ID to the poll with you, and you must also verify the address that they have on file for you. Your photo ID can be used to verify the address, assuming it has the correct address; if not, you can bring a utility bill addressed to you to prove your residence. I don’t know if NC has similar laws or if they are different, but I’d recommend bringing both your photo ID and, if it doesn’t have the correct address, a utility bill that does. Or go to the DMV and get a State ID card for fairly cheap (like $5 probably) and have them put the correct address on that. Primaries in NC are going to be held on Tuesday, 8 May 2012. Polls will open at 6:30 AM and close at 7:30 PM. You must also register to vote at least 25 days before the election. You are not automatically registered to vote when you become old enough, so make sure you don’t forget to register.
