Statement Regarding Door-to-Door Canvassers Requesting Voter Information

Last Updated on February 21, 2022 8:13 am

The State Board of Elections is reminding North Carolina residents that state and county election officials will never go door-to-door conducting any type of election business.

The State Board is aware that some private individuals are going door-to-door seeking information from North Carolina voters about the 2020 general election. They are not election officials.

We recommend the following to voters:

  • The State and county boards of elections do not go door-to-door. 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.
