The Wake County Board of Elections is not conducting voter registration drives door-to-door or in business parking lots. The Board of Elections has received numerous calls in the past several weeks from citizens reporting that groups of people claiming to represent the elections staff have been approaching them at their homes or in parking lots trying to register them to vote.
The groups or individuals conducting these voter registration drives are not affiliated with the Wake County Board of Elections. The Board of Elections encourages all eligible citizens to register and to vote. The voter registration form contains personal information that is considered “confidential” in the voter records.
Registering to vote is very easy and forms are available through the county at any Wake County Public Library, any town hall and the Board of Elections office at 337 S. Salisbury St., Raleigh. Citizens can also download and print the form at www.wakegov.com/elections
After completing and signing the form, residents can mail it to the Board of Elections, PO Box 695, Raleigh, NC 27602, or drop it off at any of the agencies listed above. Registered voters may use the form to update their name, address and party. Registered voters may also update their registration information by completing the back of their voter card and mailing or delivering it to the Wake County Board of Elections.
There are many groups registering voters at this time and the Board of Elections appreciate their efforts. Additional questions should be directed to the Board of Elections office at 919-856-6240.
