Voting is meant to be an accessible and straightforward process — however, even the sharpest civic minds may find themselves a little confused when it comes to our state’s election laws.

That’s why Carolina Public Press put together this 10 question yes-or-no educational quiz, featuring frequently asked questions from NC residents.

Our favorite part about the quiz? If you get a question wrong, it immediately provides a thorough explanation of the law’s nuances. For instance, when AVLtoday Editor Laura took the quiz, she mistakenly thought one could change their political affiliation on Election Day — and the quiz gently reminded her that political affiliations must be changed at least 25 days before Election Day.

All in all, Laura ended up with an 90% — here’s to that score (hopefully) making her high school civic teacher Dr. Rubin proud.

Think you can match that score or better? Give it a go and shoot us an email letting us know how you did.
