Civitech, a technology vendor that works with companies and campaigns to increase voter registrations, inadvertently mailed pre-filled voter registration applications with incorrect name, address and date of birth information to about 11,000 NC residents, the company said.
The State Board and the company encourage North Carolina residents to disregard and discard any mailing they receive with incorrect information, and to be diligent in reviewing election-related mail from third-party groups.
“With a month before the election, voters are likely to see an increase in election-related mailings,” said Karen Brinson Bell, executive director of the State Board of Elections. “Carefully review these mailings, and please remember that accurate information about the elections process, including how to register to vote, and how to check your voter registration status, are available at NCSBE.gov.”
Voters can use the State Board’s Voter Search Tool to check their registration status. To learn more about registering to vote, please visit https://www.ncsbe.gov/registering.
Eligible individuals may register to vote by completing a voter registration application and returning the form to their county board of elections. North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles’ customers may register to vote online through the Online Voter Registration Service.
