To Cancel Your Voter Registration

There are several ways to cancel your own Wake County voter registration.

  1. When you register to vote in a new county or state, you can complete the "Previous Voter Registration" section of the registration form.  That county or state will notify Wake County that you have moved, and we will then cancel your Wake County registration.
  2. Complete the back of your voter card with the new address and county information and send the voter card to the Wake County Board of Elections. 
  3. Complete the cancellation form by clicking below and sending it to our mailing address.

To Cancel Another Person's Voter Registration 

The only time a person is authorized to cancel the registration of another person is when the voter is a near relative cancelling the registration of a deceased family member.   If your deceased relative is still registered to vote in Wake County, you may print and complete the Notice of Deceased Voter form below. This form is also available at all Wake County polling places and early voting locations.

A near relative is defined as a spouse, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, or as a verifiable legal guardian.
