Recognized Parties

When you register to vote you may also register with any political party recognized in the State of North Carolina.

Party affiliation determines the primary in which a voter is eligible to vote. You may also register as unaffiliated. If you do not declare a party affiliation upon registering, you will be registered as unaffiliated. However, during a partisan primary election, an unaffiliated voter may vote only if a party authorizes unaffiliated voters to vote in that primary election.
