The Orange County Board of Elections provides citizens with elections that follow state and federal laws. The board is appointed by the N.C. State Board of Elections to serve two year terms.
No more than two members of the board can belong to one political party. They are responsible for preparing and conducting all elections within Orange County, as well as processing and maintaining all of the voter registration records. The board meets the first Tuesday of every month with some exceptions, and meetings are open to the public.
