North Carolina List of Voters
Click here for North Carolina’s list of Voter Registration Forms and Cancellation Forms. This database also includes a Notification of Deceased Voter Form for citizens who are deceased and need to be removed from the voter registration list. It also contains information on the North Carolina Industrial Commission’s full-text searchable databases and a list of mediators who are on the Appointed List and Mediators who are not on that list but are available to serve as Mediators in Workers’ Compensation cases.
You can register to vote online or in person at your local county board of elections. You can also complete a voter registration application using the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) services.
You must submit your application at least 25 days before an election to be processed. If you do not make this deadline, you can still register by using Same-Day Registration during Early Voting.
First-time voters must provide their NC driver’s license or non-operator identification number, the last four digits of their social security number, or a copy of a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other document that shows their name and address.
You must also designate how you want to be registered, whether you want to be affiliated with a political party or to be unaffiliated. If you choose to be registered as unaffiliated, you will be considered an Independent voter. Similarly, if you choose to be registered as a member of a political party, you will be eligible to vote in that party’s primary.

Newspapers provide a rich source of information about local history. They often contain news of marriages, births, deaths, and other events that occur in a particular community. They can be especially useful in helping to fill in gaps in a family’s civil records, such as when there were no death or marriage records available.
Many North Carolina newspapers are available on microfilm or through online databases. These resources can be searched in the Library Catalog using a keyword search.
Some of the oldest North Carolina newspapers are now digitized as part of DigitalNC. These are scanned by the State Archives of North Carolina from film created throughout the years.
There are also a number of North Carolina newspapers that are only available on microfilm at the Library. You can find these in our reading room or ask a librarian for help with a microfilm reader.
North Carolina newspapers, published from countless localities across our state over a range of time periods, offer a wealth of research information. Many newspaper articles can be found openly online, by subscription, or in microfilm or special archives.
