The driver's license examination offices, located throughout the State, have conducted a successful voter registration program since 1984.

North Carolina has mail-in voter registration forms available through public libraries, high schools and other locations throughout the county. This form is self-explanatory and can be easily completed. These locations do not accept the forms and all forms should be mailed or hand delivered directly to the county board of elections office in Burgaw.
