Starting this week, the Wake County Board of Elections will begin mailing voter cards to all active, registered Wake County voters via U.S. mail. While voter cards are not required to vote, they provide voters with their most up-to-date voting jurisdiction information and the location of their Election Day polling place.
Every ten years, the federal government conducts the U.S. Census, which requires district boundaries to be reviewed to account for population growth. Wake County’s population grew significantly in the 2020 Census, which may have shifted the districts for many voters.
"We have more than 797,000 registered voters in Wake County and we’d like for them to look out for their cards in the mail the last week of March or first week in April,” said Olivia McCall, deputy director of the Wake County Board of Elections. “It’s very important they read them carefully, make any needed corrections to their name or address and check their registration online if they don’t receive a card by end of April.”
Voters can quickly view their voter information, check their voting jurisdictions and even see their sample ballot for the upcoming May 17 Primary and Cary Municipal Elections here.
If you have your previous voter card, update your voter registration information on the back of the card and mail it back to the Board of Elections.
