Register to Vote Before the Deadlines

Cary, NC — The regular voter registration deadline is coming up on Friday, October 9, 2020. Here’s how to get registered before then or during early voting with same-day, in-person registration.

Registration Deadline 2 Weeks Away

With fall already here, the November 3 Election Day is fast approaching. To get registered to vote by the October 9 deadline, citizens can do so online, by mail or in person.

A second option is to print out and fill out the NC Voter Registration Application. Then, mail it into your local election office. To be counted, the form must be postmarked by October 9.
