IThe deadline to register to vote in North Carolina is 25 days before the date of an election. The voter registration application must be received by the applicant’s county board of elections by this date. If an application is received after the deadline, the application may still be timely if it was mailed and it is postmarked on or before the voter registration deadline; otherwise, the application will not be processed until after the election.
