How to Vote in the Primary: Choosing Your Party Affiliation | NCSBE
North Carolina has semi-closed primaries. Unless a recognized party chooses to have its primary open to unaffiliated voters, only voters registered with a particular party may vote in that party's primary.
Do you wish to change your party affiliation? The civilian voter registration deadline (25 days before Election Day) is also the deadline for voters to change their party affiliation or unaffiliated status for the next election. Learn how to do so at Updating Registration. Unaffiliated voters may choose the Democratic, Libertarian, Republican, or nonpartisan ballot (if available) in a primary election.
