Concerns noted about mailed voter registration forms

The Richmond County Board of Elections has received numerous calls and visits to our office concerning voter registration forms that are being received by mail to county residents.

To our knowledge…there are at least two groups, American’s for Prosperity Foundation and the North Carolina League of Conservation Voters Foundation that are sending out voter registration application forms to individuals across the state. Unfortunately, some of the information used to generate these mailing lists includes residents/voters who may be deceased.

If an applicant is qualified to vote, these forms are an acceptable method of registering to vote and can be completed and mailed back to either the State Board of Elections or the Richmond County Board of Elections. Certainly, if the person’s name listed on the form is not qualified to vote, recipients of these mailings should simply discard them.

If you are not sure about the status of your voter registration please call the Richmond County Board of Elections at 910-997-8253. You may also check your voter registration online using the “Voter Lookup” tool at www.ncsbe.gov.
