How to Register
Registering to Vote
Once you’ve determined you’re someone who can register to vote, there are two primary methods available to apply for voter registration in North Carolina:
- Filling out the North Carolina Voter Registration Application (Spanish version) and submitting by mail
- Using N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) services:
- Selecting the option to register to vote while applying for a vehicle license or ID
- Existing NCDMV customers may submit their voter registration application online through the DMV
Note: Certain Agencies are required to offer voter registration services. For more information, visit the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) page.
