Board of Elections

The Franklin County Board of Elections is dedicated to the preparation of all elections (local, state and federal).

Using reliable and advanced technology, we provide input to the official database at the state level to insure accuracy and integrity of your Elections.

We neither favor nor endorse any specific party, candidate or office. Our goal is to work for the people of Franklin County in providing you with an equal and fair opportunity to elect your representatives in government.


On July 29, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit struck down photo ID requirements and associated laws in North Carolina (S.L. 2013-381, as amended by S.L. 2015-103).  The state is considering its options.  Barring a different outcome on appeal, photo ID will not be required in the upcoming general election.  Further details will be posted as they become available.
