ASHEBORO N.C. – The North Carolina Board of Elections is letting voters know that state and county election officials will never go door-to-door conducting any type of election business.
In a statement issued today the State Board of Elections says they are “reminding North Carolina residents that state and county election officials will never go door-to-door conducting any type of election business.”
The warning comes after reports that some private individuals are going door-to-door seeking information from North Carolina voters about the 2020 general election. Election officials say these individuals are not election officials.
The board recomends the following advice.
- If a person comes to your house claiming to be an elections worker, ask them to verify their identity and their organization.
- It is not necessary to answer your door, let anyone inside, or disclose any information about your voter record or private information to anyone who comes to your home.
- If you have any questions about voting or elections in North Carolina, please contact your county board of elections or the State Board of Elections at (919) 814-0700.
- You can always check your voter registration status through the State Board’s “Voter Search” tool here: Voter Search. If you are not registered or need to update your registration, applications are available on the State Board website and at all county boards of elections offices. See here: How to Register. You may also register or update your voter registration online with the North Carolina DMV, if you have an NC driver’s license or nonoperator’s identification.
