Wake County Voter Data

The voter data file is available in a zipped file containing three Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. One contains data for precincts that start with 01, one contains data for precincts that start with 02 through 12, and one contains data for precincts that start with 13 through 20. 

The three files contain complete voter data information for the county and may be filtered to view a specific precinct, party, election or other field. The downloaded data files may be used for further analysis on your personal computer.  Voter data is updated each Monday.

The files contain a snapshot of live voter registration data. Vote history records in the data indicate only that a voter voted in that election, not where the voter voted. Because of voter changes since an election date due to list maintenance processes (such as removals and address updates), an individual's vote history may not be in the same precinct and jurisdictions as the voter's current precinct and jurisdictions.

NOTE: The file is large and may take a few minutes to open.  You must use Microsoft Excel version 2007 or newer in order to view the data.
