WEB EXCLUSIVE If you haven’t already registered to vote, Friday, October 9 is the last day to do so in North Carolina. If you just turned 18, recently moved or have yet to register before, registering to vote is crucial in making your voice heard in the 2020 election, perhaps one of the most important elections to date due to national unrest and the global pandemic.
There are three ways to register to vote in North Carolina before October 9:
- Apply to register to vote online through the NC DMV website
- Register to vote in person at your county board of elections office*
- Fill out the North Carolina Voter Registration form and send it through the mail*
After October 9, you can register and vote on the same day at sites across your county during the early voting period from October 15–31 (bring your driver’s license or ID and proof of residence). However, you must register to vote before Election Day on November 3. For a list of Wake County’s early voting locations and hours, visit wakegov.com/elections.

You Can Vote, a group of volunteers who are adamant about educating, registering and empowering voters, has been doing a ton of outreach to ensure that all qualified North Carolina citizens are registered to vote, no matter their gender, sexual orientation or political affiliation. Their website features a step-by-step guide to voter registration and voting by mail, information on candidates running this year and other resources that are helpful to this year’s election. Visit their website for more information or sign up to be a volunteer.
