Frequently Asked Questions
The easiest way to update your voter registration or register for the first time is to use the NC DMV’s online portal, which can be accessed at https://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/offices-services/online/Pages/voter-registration-application.aspx. However, you can also register by mailing a voter registration application to your county’s Board of Elections or in-person during early voting.

North Carolina uses a semi-open primary system. That means that the Democratic primary election is open to both registered Democrats and unaffiliated voters. If you are a registered Democrat, you will receive a Democratic ballot when you go to vote, but if you are registered unaffiliated, you will be asked to choose between one of the recognized political parties in North Carolina. You can only vote on one party’s ballot, so if you’re an unaffiliated voter and want to cast your vote for Nida, make sure to request the Democratic primary ballot.
Primary election day is March 8th, 2022! If you know that you won’t be able to make it to the polls on that date, or if you just want to get voting out of the way, North Carolina offers two ways of voting absentee. You can vote absentee-by-mail by requesting a mail-in ballot beginning in January, or you can vote early in-person at any of a number of early voting sites between Thursday, February 17th and 3 PM on March 5th. You can learn more about voting absentee-by-mail at https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/vote-mail and voting early in-person at https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/vote-early-person.
The North Carolina State Board of Elections has a non-partisan resources page available at https://www.ncsbe.gov/voting/upcoming-election. They’ll be updating it with more information as we get closer to Election Day.
