These voter registration files contain the most up-to-date publicly available information for individuals registered or formerly registered to vote in North Carolina, as well as individuals who have attempted to register or have steps left uncompleted in the registration process. Formerly registered ('Removed') voters are omitted from the files if their most recent last-voted date is greater than 10 years.
What’s included? Voter registration status (e.g., active, removed) and reason for status; voter demographics, party affiliation, and address; voter county, precinct, and district information (e.g., NC Senate and House, judicial); when applicable, county commissioner and additional local districts (e.g. sanitation, school). See file layout for full list of variables.
What’s not included? Voter birthdate, Social Security number, and driver’s license number are confidential under state law and are not included. Voter history is not included; but Voter Registration Data files are linkable to Voter History Data files via NCID or county and voter registration number.
When are the files updated? The files are updated weekly on Saturday mornings. After each election, it may take multiple days for all 100 counties to finalize their voter registration.
Voter registration snapshot files provide a point-in-time snapshot of information for active and inactive voters, as well as removed voters going back for a period of ten years. There are two types of voter registration snapshot files: those taken on Election Day, and those taken on the first day of each year. These are located in the Voter Registration Snapshots folder on our FTP site.
Voter stats files contain registered voter demographics at the time of a given election in North Carolina; these voters did not necessarily cast a vote in the election.
What’s included? You can view the total number of active and inactive voters registered in North Carolina per election (at the time of the election), broken down by county, precinct, and voter demographics: party affiliation, race, ethnicity, and age. See layout file for full list of variables.
What’s not included? Because the files contain statistics for all registered voters — who may or may not have cast ballots — the files do not contain voting method, candidate/ballot item choices, or election results. These files do not contain individual-level voter information, such as voter name or age; see Voter History Stats files for individual-level voter information.
When are the files updated? A file is generated for each election. After the election, it may take multiple weeks for all 100 counties to finalize their voter registration.
