Press Releases

The NC State Board of Elections and county boards of elections are responding to requests from Election Day voters about why their “voter history” records are not yet updated to reflect the fact that they voted on Election Day – November 8, 2022. We believe this is the direct result of certain groups spreading false and misleading information about this process in an attempt to sow distrust in our elections.

North Carolina elections officials will host a news conference at 11 a.m. Tuesday, November 8, to provide information and answer questions about the 2022 general election in North Carolina.

North Carolina elections officials continue to receive complaints and questions about mass mailings and text messages to voters about the November 8 general election. The State and county boards of elections are not sending these. They come from private political groups.

Over the past couple of days, the State Board of Elections has received numerous calls from voters across North Carolina who are confused or angered by mailers that include information, sometimes inaccurate, about whether they voted in the 2018 or 2020 elections.

Statement from State Board Chair Damon Circosta on maintaining an orderly and safe voting environment for the 2022 general election.

The State Board of Elections wishes to set the record straight after a guest on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News this week spread false information about North Carolina elections. The State Board and some county boards of elections have received inquiries about this since the segment aired on Wednesday.

With the North Carolina House of Representatives today considering a bill to mandate that no voter be denied the ability to vote in the uniform required by their job, the State Board of Elections wishes to make clear to voters that they are already entitled to vote wearing the uniform of their job. The bill would clarify what is already the law.

11:14 a.m: The following is a statement from Damon Circosta, chairman of the State Board of Elections, on today’s Board meeting.

10:31 a.m: A number of voter advocacy and political organizations have begun to send mass mailings to voters and prospective voters across North Carolina as the 2022 statewide primary election approaches.

3:04 p.m: The State Board of Elections is reminding North Carolina residents that state and county election officials will never go door-to-door conducting any type of election business.
