Here’s how to see your sample ballot:

  • Go to the State Board of Elections Voter Search page.
  • Enter the required fields, including your First name, Last name and Voter Status.
  • Click “Search.” The system will display a list of matching voter names and the county and city/town where that voter is registered.
  • Click the name from the list that matches you. The system will display your voter information, including your precinct, congressional district, NC Senate district, NC House district, county commissioner district, etc.
  • Click the blue band labeled “Sample Ballots.” Under “Election” you will see the name of the current/next election. To the right of that, under “Ballot(s),” you will see a link to a sample ballot for the precinct where you live if an election is pending or underway and a sample ballot has been assigned. If a link to a sample ballot appears, click the link to display the ballot as a PDF, which you can download and print if desired.
  • Click the blue band labeled “Election Polling Place,” and you’ll see the address where you go to vote.

NOTE: Year of birth is not required. If the system does not accept your year of birth, try entering just your First name, Last name and Voter Status. Those are the only required fields.

If you have issues, please contact the State Board of Elections at elections.sboe@ncsbe.gov or call (919) 814-0700 during normal business hours.
