​Register or Update Your Voter Registration at Board of Elections’ Feb. 1 Event

Are you registered or has it been a while since you updated your voter registration?

Don’t worry! The Wake County Board of Elections is making it easy for you to register or update your information well in advance of the March 3, 2020 primary election.

The BOE is hosting a voter registration event on Saturday, Feb. 1. From 9 a.m. through 5 p.m, Wake County residents can head to the BOE office, located at 1200 N. New Hope Road, Raleigh, and work with staff to register or update their registration information.

When should your voter registration be updated?

Voters need to update the information on their registration at different points in their lives. Name changes and address changes necessitate a voter registration update. In addition, if a voter chooses to change party affiliation, his or her voter registration must be updated to reflect the change.

“We want to ensure that everyone who is interested in participating in the upcoming primaries – or any election, for that matter – can do so,” said Gary Sims, Wake County Board of Elections director. “By holding this event on a Saturday, we hope people who might not be able to stop by our offices during our normal, Monday-through-Friday business hours can have the opportunity or get the help they need to update their registration.”
