Election Services is proud to announce the opening of a voter information center in the Asheville Mall. The new space is geared to offer greater accessibility to the public from registration to requesting absentee ballots. It will also serve as a one-stop Early Voting location for both the March primary election and the November general election.
The Asheville Mall is located at 3 South Tunnel Road, you will find Election Services through the McAlister’s entrance, a couple of doors up from Dillard’s. The office will be open weekdays, 10 a.m. -5 p.m. with extended hours during Early Voting.

Stop by the office to learn more.
One-Stop Early Voting Location
The voter information center will serve as a one-stop Early Voting location. Any Buncombe County resident may vote early at any one of our Early Voting locations. If you miss the voter registration deadline of Feb. 7, you can visit any of the Early Voting sites to complete same-day registration and vote. The one-stop, in-person Early Voting period for the March 3 primary begins Thursday, Feb. 13, and ends Saturday, Feb. 29.
In addition, during scheduled Early Voting times, we offer a wait map which tells you how many voters are in line in real time. The wait map will be available on our website at buncombecounty.org/vote.
In a Dec. 31 order, a federal district court blocked North Carolina’s voter photo ID requirement from taking effect. The injunction will remain in place until further order of the court. This means no photo ID will be required to vote in the March primary election.
