Voting Rights of Convicted Felons
As a result of a recent N.C. Superior Court ruling, convicted felons in North Carolina may be eligible to register to vote if certain conditions are met.
You may now register and vote if you are serving an extended term of probation, post-release supervision due to outstanding fines, fees or restitution and you do not know of any other reason the probation, post-release supervision or parole was extended.
You may apply to register to vote online. Click the button below to complete an application for new voter registration or to update your address or party affiliation. Updated information will only apply to your voter registration.
Please note: There is no fee to apply for voter registration through the PayIt online service and you do not need to create an account with PayIt. Select “Continue as a guest” to bypass creating an account.
Once the online application is complete, it is sent to the N.C. State Board of Elections, which handles voter registrations.
If there are any issues with the application or if more information is needed, your county board of elections will contact you to complete the process. Voter registration applications submitted fewer than 25 days before an election will not be processed until after the election. You may still register to vote in person using same-day registration in your county during the early voting period.
