Register to Vote by October 10 for the November Election
Registration Forms are Available at the Steele Creek Library

Your Vote Counts!(September 12, 2014) The deadline to register to vote in the November 4 election is October 10.

Voter Registration Forms are available for downloading from the North Carolina State Board of Elections web site. Forms also are available at the Steele Creek Library (13620 Steele Creek Road) and other libraries. You will need to complete the form and mail it back to your county board of elections by October 10.

The mailing address for the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections is PO Box 31788, Charlotte, NC 28231. For more information, visit the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections web site.

Volunteers are available at the Steele Creek Library on most days to assist people with voter registration and collect completed forms. If you do not see the voter registration table inside the main entrance, check back at a later time or request a registration form from a library staff person. However, library staff cannot assist in completing the forms and cannot collect them.

Voters will not need to show a photo ID until the 2016 election. However, poll workers should be asking all voters if they have acceptable IDs. If they do not, poll workers should be collecting information from the voters so that their county board of elections can reach out to them and ensure that they can obtain proper photo ID before 2016.   

Other provisions of the Voter Information Verification Act do take effect this year. These include:

  • Early Voting has been cut to 10 days.
  • No same day registration during Early Voting
  • Straight-ticket voting has been eliminated.
  • Provisional ballots cast in the wrong precinct on Election Day will not count.
  • Pre-registration for 16 and 17 year olds has been eliminated.

Offices on he November ballot include US Senate, US Representatives, NC Legislature, County Commissioner, Sheriff, various judges, and other offices.  Mecklenburg County residents can go to View My Sample Ballot and enter their home address to view their sample ballot.
