Voting Registration Information
The State Board of Elections and N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles now offer certain online voter registration services for existing DMV customers
If you are a DMV customer with a N.C. driver’s license or DMV-issued ID, you may now register to vote or change certain parts of your registration online.
Using this service existing DMV customers may register to vote, update their voter registration address, or update their party affiliation. They may not change their name.
This is a standalone service that does not require the user to complete a DMV transaction (such as duplicate or license renewal) at the same time.
There is no fee for voter registration services.
Voter registration applications submitted fewer than 25 days before an election will not be processed until after the election. You may still register to vote in person using same-day registration in your county during the early voting period.--
Voting Options in North Carolina
Any person registered to vote in North Carolina and seeking to vote in an election has several options. A voter may use of any of the following methods to cast a ballot:
A voter may vote absentee-by-mail. This entails requesting a ballot from their county board of elections (download the State Absentee Ballot Request Form), receiving and voting the ballot, and then mailing it back by a certain deadline. For more information on absentee-by-mail voting procedures and deadlines, visit our absentee voting page.
A voter may vote in-person during the one-stop absentee (early) voting period. This entails presenting at any early voting location in your county of residence, and casting a ballot in person. For more information on early voting procedures and times, visit our one-stop voting page.
A voter may vote in-person on Election Day. This entails presenting at your specific precinct polling place and casting your vote on Election Day. Polls are open 6:30 am to 7:30 pm.
North Carolina is committed to making the voting process as accessible as possible. We offer a number of accomodations for any voter who may have difficulty voting via the three options listed above. For more information on the types of aid offered, as well as how to request/use them, please visit our voting accessibility page.--
