Voter Law Changes for 2014 Elections
Wake County Board of Elections (BOE) wants to remind voters of the changes in the election laws as outlined in the Voter ID Bill enacted by the N.C. General Assembly.

The following changes will go into effect for primary elections held on Tuesday, May 6, 2014. The primary elections will be for the Democratic Party, Republican Party, Libertarian Party and Non-Partisan Judicial races.
  • Voters must have registered by Friday, April 11, 2014, to be eligible to vote in the primary election. Voters may no longer register and vote at the early voting site.

  • Voters should have updated information completing an N.C. Voter Registration Application by Friday, April 11, 2014, or by voting at an early voting site. Voters cannot update information on Election Day.

  • A voter registered as "unaffiliated" must choose within which primary they wish to vote, or vote a non-partisan ballot for the judicial races.

  • Voters are required to vote in their assigned precinct listed on the voter registration card or/and on the BOE website at wakegov.com/elections.

  • Voters cannot vote with a provisional ballot outside assigned precinct. The ballot will not be counted.
