Voter Registration


What are the qualifications to vote in Chatham County?

A citizen of the United States (if convicted of a felony, citizenship rights must be restored). A legal resident of Chatham County for 30 days by the date of the next  election. A person 18 years of age, or a person 17 years of age can register and vote in the primary if they will be 18 by the date of the General Election. 

How do I get registered?

You must complete a Voter Registration Application
and mail or deliver to the elections office at least 25 days prior to an election. A Voter's Information Card will be mailed to you once your registration application has been processed. This card provides your proof of registration and also provides useful information as to your precinct number and polling location. The card also displays what jurisdictions you vote in. Please retain this card as it may be used to change your address by mail should you move, change your name or change your party affiliation within Chatham County. It can also be used to cancel your Chatham County registration should you move out of the county. This card is not required on Election Day in order to vote.

Eligible individuals may register and vote during the one-stop early voting period.  This “same-day registration” process is currently permitted due to a preliminary injunction granted under a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, but this option remains the subject of ongoing litigation in federal court.
