NC DMV Customer Online Voter RegistrationOnlineRegDMV.png

If you are a DMV customer with a N.C. driver’s license or DMV-issued ID
, you may now register to vote or change certain parts of your registration online.

Using this service existing DMV customers may register to vote, update their voter registration address, or update their party affiliation. They may not change their name.


This is a standalone service that does not require the user to complete a DMV transaction (such as duplicate or license renewal) at the same time.

There is no fee for voter registration services. 

Voter registration applications submitted fewer than 25 days before an election will not be processed until after the election. You may still register to vote in person using same-day registration in your county during the early voting period.
