Registering to Vote
If you have not yet registered to vote, you have until Friday, October 9 to send in a voter registration form. Alternately, you can register to vote using the NC Department of Motor Vehicles site or you can register to vote during the early in-person voting period.

Some registration information changes can also be made online at the DMV site. Name changes require a signed form. The form can be completed in person, mailed, emailed, or faxed to the Pamlico Board of Elections.

Verify that your voter registration is current and the information is correct.
