Voter registration deadline is Friday

SALISBURY — Friday is the final day to register to vote in the general election on Nov. 8 or make changes to existing registrations.

Any person who wishes to register to vote or make changes to their registration should bring forms to the Rowan County Board of Elections office by 5 p.m. Friday or mail voter registration forms by Friday. The Rowan County Board of Elections is located in West End Plaza. It’s address is 1935 Jake Alexander Boulevard W., Suite D10, Salisbury, N.C. 28147.

Friday’s deadline only applies to those who vote on election day. During the 2016 general election, Rowan residents will be allowed to register and vote on the same day during in-person, early voting, which starts on Oct. 20.

In order to register to vote, you must provide a driver’s license or ID card and the last four digits of your social security number. If you don’t have a driver’s license license, ID card, or social security number, check the box to indicate that.

Voter registration forms can be obtained by visiting the North Carolina Board of Elections website at ncsbe.gov and clicking on voter registration application under the “forms” section. Once printed and completed, that form can be delivered in person or mailed to the Rowan County Board of Elections.

For more information about registering to vote, contact the Rowan County Board of Elections at 704-216-8140.
