Wake County Brings Accessible Voter Info to Public Libraries

Wake County is bringing expanded voter services to eight libraries.

It’s almost that time of year again—Election Day (it’ll be here before you know it!). A lot of regulations have changed in NC since the last election, and so Wake County wants to ensure voters understand the new norm. Thus, the Wake County Board of Elections is partnering with Wake County Libraries to offer accessible voter information at eight local libraries this summer. During the sessions, attendees can receive voter registration updates and election information—plus get an acceptable photo ID, which is now required to be shown before voting. 

“We always strive to empower more people to vote in Wake County by making information and resources as accessible as possible,” says Board of Elections Director Olivia McCall. “This collaboration with the libraries is an excellent opportunity for us to provide accurate information and help residents better prepare for the upcoming elections.” Here, what you need to know before you go.


Information sessions will take place Saturdays from 10am to 2pm June 22 through Aug 17, with the exception of July 6. 


June 22, Duraleigh Road Community Library in Raleigh
June 29, Fuquay Varina Community Library in Fuquay-Varina
July 13, Southeast Regional Library in Garner
July 20, Oberlin Regional Library in Raleigh
July 27, West Regional Library in Cary
Aug. 3, East Regional Library in Knightdale
Aug. 10, Eva Perry Regional Library in Apex
Aug. 17, Northeast Regional Library in Raleigh

When do I need to register by? 

The registration deadline for the general election is Oct. 11, but you can still register at an Early voting site after the deadline. Early voting runs Oct. 17 through Nov. 2, and the general election is on Nov. 5.
