 Do I Have to Declare a Party?

Party affiliation determines the primary in which a voter is eligible to vote. You may register with the Democrat, Republican or Libertarian parties, or you may register as unaffiliated. Unaffiliated voters may vote in a party primary if authorized by that party. If you do not declare a party you will be registered as unaffiliated.

Do I Have to Contact the Board of Elections if I Want to Change My Registration Information?

Yes, if you:

● Have moved within Guilford County since you registered in the county (it is a violation of state law to return to your old precinct and vote if you have moved more than 30 days)
Have changed your name
● Want to change your party affiliation

You may change your address, name or party by filling out the back of your voter information card and returning it to the elections office or filling out a mail-in registration form. This information must be received by registration deadlines for elections. Also, report of a change of address within Guilford County may be submitted by facsimile transmission, so long as a permanent copy of the completed and signed form is delivered to the elections office no later than 20 days before the election.

What if I Moved but Forgot to update my Registration Record?

If you fail to change your address by the registration deadline, on election day go to your old precinct and fill out an election day transfer form. Take the form to your new precinct where you will be allowed to vote. To avoid this procedure, change your address by the registration deadline.
