You have the right to register from home!


The deadline for voter registration for the 2016 general election is Friday, October 14.


However, if you miss this deadline, you may still be able to register! Because some of North Carolina's voting laws were struck down by the courts recently, you can register to vote in person during the early voting period.

We can let you know if this changes if you click the link to sign up for Election Alerts.



Step 2: To register before October 14, first you have to get a voter registration form from one of these places:


Step 3: Fill out your voter registration form. Ask someone you trust to help you if it would be helpful.

Step 4: Click the link to find the mailing address for your county's Board of Elections.

Step 5: Get an envelope and a stamp.

Step 6: Put your filled-out registration form in the envelope. On the front of the envelope, write the address for your county's Board of Elections. Also, put the stamp in the upper right-hand corner of the envelope.

Step 7: Put the envelope in the mail.

Congratulations! You have just registered to vote!
