Yes, you may fax or email your voter registration form, however for new registrations or changes of party affiliation, the Board of Elections must receive the original signed hardcopy within 20 days of the voter registration deadline for any given election.
Yes. If you are an unaffiliated voter, you can declare a party to vote in the primary or you may choose to vote the unaffiliated ballot, if any. Please be aware that you can only declare to participate in ONLY ONE party; you cannot vote across party platforms in the primaries. Participating in a partisan primary will not affect your status as an unaffiliated voter. If you request a non-partisan ballot, only those contests that are non-partisan (i.e. judicial contests, referenda, etc.) will appear on your ballot.
Voter registration records are not "purged". Voters are removed from the voter rolls due to a biennial list maintenance process that is mandated by federal and state law. If a county Board of Elections has not had any contact with a voter for a period of two federal election cycles (at least 4 years), the voter is sent a non-forwardable, no-contact mailing. The voter will be required to return the confirmation card within 30 days of the mailing. If the confirmation mailing is not returned by the voter within the specified time, or the mailing is returned by the postal service as undeliverable, the voter’s record is marked inactive in the voter registration database. Inactive voters are still registered. Should an inactive voter appears to vote, the person will be asked to update his or her address with the Board of Elections. Should the inactive voter remains in this status for another two federal election cycles (meaning the county board has no contact with the voter or any voting activity during this timeframe), the voter will be removed as a voter in the county pursuant to Federal and State statutes.
In North Carolina, all county Board of Elections follow a comprehensive list maintenance schedule to remove names of individuals who are no longer eligible to be registered due to death, incarceration, removal from the county, or lack of voter contact/activity pursuant to State statutes.
