All completed voter registration forms for Haywood County residents should be mailed or hand delivered to the Haywood County Board of Elections, 63 Elmwood Way, Suite A, Waynesville, NC 28786. If a registration deadline is approaching, information may be faxed to (828) 452-6750alt providing the original documents are later mailed.

Voter Registration & Party Affiliation

There are three recognized political parties in North Carolina: Democratic, Republican and Libertarian. Voter registration applicants may choose one of these political parties when completing a voter registration application, or they may choose not to register with a political party affiliation. In this case, the voter’s party affiliation will be designated as Unaffiliated. North Carolina has a semi-closed primary system. In a partisan primary, voters who are affiliated with a political party may only vote the partisan ballot for the party for which they are affiliated; they are closed from voting in another party’s primary. Unaffiliated voters may vote in any one recognized party’s primary. In a General Election, all voters who are assigned to a   precinct will receive the same ballot style and may vote for the candidate(s) of their choice, regardless of the candidate(s) party affiliation. There is   no longer straight-party voting in North Carolina. Voters must make a separate selection for each contest separately.
