To vote in Orange County, you must be:

  • A U.S. Citizen
  • A Resident of North Carolina and this county for 30 days before the election
  • At least 18 years of age on or before the next general election
  • Not registered and not voting in any other county or state
  • If convicted of a felony, your rights of citizenship have been restored
  • If you move out of your precinct, but remain within Orange County, you should notify the board office in writing of your new address.

Pre-Registration

Anyone at least 16 years of age may pre-register to vote. Once submitted to the Board of Elections, these registrations will be processed and held until the registrant is qualified by age to register and vote. The registrant will then receive their voter verification card through the mail.
