If you are registering for the first time in Carteret County, the Carteret County Board of Elections must receive your application with an original signature. While we highly encourage you to fill out all sections of the voter registration form, your full name, residential address, date of birth, and original signature are mandatory fields and must be completed on the registration form.
You may mail your completed voter registration form to Carteret County Board of Elections, 1702 Live Oak St., Suite 200, Beaufort, NC 28516. You may also hand deliver the form to the Carteret County Board of Elections at 1702 Live Oak St., Suite 200, Beaufort, NC 28516.
Voter Registration forms received via email or fax DO NOT satisfy the requirement of an original signature for first time registrations in the county.
If you are currently registered in Carteret County and need to make a change to your name, address, or party affiliation, you may elect to email, mail, or deliver in-person your registration form to the Carteret County Board of Elections.
The deadline to register to vote is 25 days before the day of the election. Voter registration forms that are received at the Carteret County Board of Elections office or postmarked by the deadline are accepted as valid applications for the upcoming election.
